Thought it might be nice to have a Isle of Wight Garden supplies database to cover any aspect of gardening. From plants to ponds, hard landscaping, tool hire, pots, ornaments etc There are loads of small independent plant specialists on the Island, please let us know your favourite ones. Also if you can fill in any of the details on some of the ones below like addresses, websites, photos or product information please Email: ventnorpermaculture(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)uk
If you are one of the garden supplies places listed below and want me to add more details or photo’s to your listing, please get in contact. There is no charge for listings on this page, we just want to create as full a list as possible. Also if you are having a sale or special offers, I will gladly list them for you, email address above.
At the moment is is going to be a somewhat random list, will put into categories when the list gets bigger.
Tollslye Plantation, Birchmore Lane, Blackwater Tel: 07794 345098 (It is a bridleway so beware of walkers and horses, it is very narrow) If you are coming from Newport towards Rookley when you turn into Blackwater Road it is the last bridleway just after the last house on the left before you start to go up the hill, follow bridleway for one mile, do not turn off of it, follow signs.
Saturday 21st June saw the opening of this new nursery, they specialise in roses but stock 1000’s of plants in 100’s of varieties, loads of alpines, perennials, shrubs, trees & climbers. I did read that it covered a large area but that is a slight understatement! I was very impressed with the amount of different types of Osteospermum (Cape Daisies) they have, beautiful orange and yellow ones plus another couple of colours I had not seen before, good selection of delphiniums, not forgetting the huge variety of pinks they stock, the perfume from them was wonderful. A lovely selection of a wide variety of plants, most were reasonably priced, staff very helpful. They have a garden club which will offer monthly workshops, discounts and a newsletter.
Winter Opening Hours – Mondays and Fridays from 10am – 4pm
I bought a couple of plants from this Nursery on Sunday at the Rookley Gardening Galore Market, today as I was going somewhere else, I got slightly lost (nothing new there), was looking for somewhere to turn round when I saw the sign ‘Ager Farm Nursery’ so thought I would go and take a look. From the entrance it does not look as though it would be very big but this nursery is a bit like a tardis. They specialise in fuchsias, shrubs and climbers whilst having a very wide selection of other plants. Hanging baskets are another speciality, they had probably well over a hundred custom made ones hanging up awaiting collection. You can buy one of their many types of hanging basket or take you own along to have made up or just buy the plants. You won’t find heated gardening gloves for sale or other strange things sold by some of the garden centres just good quality, reasonably priced plants and shrubs. Top marks awarded for being friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I have to say this has to be my favourite plant nursery and is well worth a visit. Angie 6th May 2008
