6th January 2021. In line with the current government lockdown rules, Burncoose Nurseries is closed to visitors. However at present we are able to offer click and collect to local customers. This will be weekdays only, not weekends. Mail order is continuing as normal. However please allow extra time for the couriers to deliver, once despatched from us. Sorry to say that some depots are experiencing high volumes of traffic, also staff shortages.

Rare Plants List

At Burncoose we are known for having an interesting rarity list. These rare plants are either in very short supply or still too small to be despatched at least until early summer. If you order one of these plants you may have to go on our waiting list.
