Small specialist nurseries and garden centres are the reason we have such a diverse and wide ranging selection of plants available in the UK. The smaller often family run nurseries develop and raise new plants, propagate and keep rare native and exotic species alive.

They offer something unique that is not available in the large chain store retailers that buy in bulk offering only a limited range or choice. There are many varieties that are only grown by a few niche nurseries and without them these plants would disappear forever.

Plant Post's plant search is a moderated search engine powered by Google that helps to support the 'little guy' (or gal) and makes it easier for you to find that plant you are looking for. By using our Plant Search Engine you are helping support British nurseries and garden centres that add value to the industry and variety and diversity to gardeners in the UK.
