The Art of Good


Making sure your plants arrive in perfect condition is extremely important to us. See how our trees and shrubs are packed before leaving the nursery

Weasdale Nurseries

Our Story so far

From a ½  acre plot and a typewriter’s stock-list on a sheet of foolscap way back in 1950, nowadays we occupy 50 acres and our catalogue runs to 126 pages and lists over 1000 different hardy trees and shrubs. Some things haven’t changed though, such as our tough, upland growing climate, unmatched packaging techniques and good old-fashioned customer service. We hope you’ll enjoy exploring our virtual arboretum of a website and that we’ll be soon able to count you amongst our vast family of happy Weasdale customers.

Dear Sir, Many thanks for consignment which arrived today in very good order. I must say that I have never had such good value from any other nursery and I shall look forward to ordering more again next year.

Having previously ordered from yourselves I was well aware of your quality. What I had forgotten was the excellent packaging you employ to ensure safe receipt. It’s hard to decide which is the better, the quality of the product or the work of art that is the packing! Thank you for another quality delivery.

Thank you very much for your attention and service. The holly tree ordered yesterday at 2.15pm arrived today at 2.00pm – less than twenty four hours later. The tree is already planted and is absolutely what we wanted. It is seldom that one finds service like this – good stock, well packed, promptly despatched.

Our trees arrived safely yesterday afternoon. We were most impressed with all the packaging, which took longer to remove than it did to plant the trees!

I received a beautifully packed plant. It would have done a professional flower arranger justice. In fact, I had the impression that if I had planted the whole unopened package as it was, it still would have looked good! Thank you, Weasdale Nurseries.
