Blackstem Plants

All nurseries

At Blackstem Plants, we grow the interesting, the unusual and the beautiful. All of our perennials and grasses are grown at the nursery and are chosen to enhance your garden and provide benefits for wildlife. You won’t find bedding plants or hanging baskets here.

Tucked away in a secluded valley, we are open by appointment only. We can give you our undivided attention and are happy to help with plant information and advice.

Our website provides detailed information about our plants and the nursery. Please call or email to book an appointment, to check stock availability or to pre-order for delivery to shows.
