In the 1980’s Burncoose was a traditional mail order business attending shows throughout the country to recruit new customers. Today the nursery’s mail order business is over 75% online and Burncoose has adapted accordingly while remaining one of the top 5 UK plant mail order businesses both in terms of the huge range of trees shrubs herbaceous and ornamental plants available for purchase on its website. Also in continuing to offer many new and unusual plants each year for the discerning gardener.
