About Us

Perennial Specialist – The Nursery

The Story So Far

After leaving school I started worked as a trainee nurseryman at a traditional growing nursery (Hyrons Nursery, Amersham, Bucks). I successfully completed a 3 year day release course but the nursery was always where I was happiest and learnt so much. Sadly the nursery succumbed to the developers many years ago but I still meet people who say they miss the nursery because it propagated the vast majority of the plants and therefore knew about them. It was during this time the seeds were sown of one day starting my own nursery.

My next stop was a larger nursery, still growing and propagating, but not such a broad range of plants. I was mainly involved with Fuschias, Geraniums, Dahlias etc. I gained valuable experience during this time and it was another step towards my own nursery, Home Farm Plants, Bovingdon.

Elatum Delphiniums

We are passionate about Delphiniums and have built up a specialist Elatum Delphinium section. These are very tough hardy perennials that can withstand very cold winter temperatures. See our Delphinium Gallery page for more information. We do not currently provide a mail order service.


We grow a wide range of perennials on the nursery, using the traditional methods of propagation eg. seed, division or cuttings. They are all grown under natural conditions (not forced) so to make a natural transition to your garden. We are constantly changing our range of perennials so please feel free to contact us to see what is currently available.

Home Farm was built in 1888 so the cottage garden theme of perennials seems a natural progression for the nursery.
