It can be frustrating when you design the perfect garden, only to find that you have to go to more than one nursery or plant supplier to fulfil your order. We regularly fulfil a huge number of orders for well-known, and not so well-known gardeners, homes, and tourist attractions. Delivered direct to site, when you need it.

Save time by ordering from Burncoose Nurseries. As our name suggests we are a nursery, we have over 4000 varieties of plants in stock. If by chance a particular plant you need is not available, we will make alternative suggestions for you or we will try to find it elsewhere for you as part of our normal service.

Save money, we already have many quantity discounts throughout our normal catalogue, however if your order is over £400.00 we will be happy to quote further discounts. The rate applied will depend on size of order, range of plants, whether plants are home grown, and how many we have left in stock. Please ask for this at the time order, if ordering online add your request in the comments box.

Be bold in your designs, safe in the knowledge that we are constantly seeking out and importing new plants from China, Chile, New Zealand and the USA our catalogue contains many rare and unusual plants which garden designers will simply not be able to source from elsewhere

We are celebrating nearly 30 years of plant growing and supply this year, so you know you are dealing with a well-established, experienced nursery. We are more ' You can contact any of us to help with your queries regarding orders, design, delivery or availability, we will do our best to help you.

For All at Burncoose: the most helpful and knowledgeable staff always seeming to be by the phone, and how we have loved our choice, wonderful Magnolias, specially bred over the years and also some of the very exciting new ones, especially the yellows.

So many garden visitors have been found taking picture after picture .!!!

Everything comes so perfectly packed and therefore immaculate: The Hydrangeas you sent have been flowering continuously and are in the best of health...

Thank you for making it all so easy and so wonderful. We look forward to the new catalogue and ordering again.

We have in the past 8 yrs been developing and creating a 20 acre garden which is now recently included in the "Great Gardens of Cornwall".

Without the wonderful selection and quality of the plants from Burncoose Nursery this would not have been possible. Not only do they have a huge variety of specimens, many especially suitable to our conditions, but they have been able to locate those rare feature shrubs and trees that have made such a difference and formed the backbone of our garden.

We have seen truly amazing growth, partly due to the excellent growing conditions here at Bonython, but also due to the quality of the products purchased from Burncoose Nurseries who have always been extremely helpful with advice and suggestions. Their expertise in knowing what plants will do well in different situations and soil types is crucial.

I highly recommend the nursery and their mail order cataloque.

Mike Nelhams - Curator - Tresco Abbey - Iles of Scilly
Not to my shame having been to Burncoose Nursery for some years, I was delighted on my visit to find a very wide range of well grown, tender and unusual plants presented themselves to me in a way that meant I stayed a whole morning adding to my shopping basket. I found the nursery spacious, well laid out and with plants grouped by type and easily accessed. The whole site gave me the feeling of not being just somewhere to buy plants but off having a bit of a day out while doing it.

And a quick peek into the mail order department will make sure that many more plants will find their way to Tresco in the future. Why did I take so long to go back !!

As a breeder and as plant producers it is reassuring to see how our plants are handled on the other side of the world. We visited Burncoose Nurseries and Gardens in 2006 and were amazed at the range of material grown both in the nursery and extensive gardens.


TRADE ORDER VALUE: Our normal minimum trade order from genuine garden designers and landscape businesses is £400.00. However where we receive regular ongoing orders from a trade customer we would ignore this limit in most instances.

TRADE DISCOUNTS: Our retail catalogue already includes quantity discount for many items. However we can normally offer additional discounts for trade orders which may simply be a percentage discount on the total value of the plants ordered or we may instead price each item for you individually. The size of the trade discounts which we can offer on individual plants will vary depending on their scarcity or rarity to us, whether we have grown them ourselves or imported them from overseas and what our own stock levels are at different times of the year. We treat each potential order on its merits.


SUBSTITUTES: We will always suggest alternative choices for plants which we do not list or which are out of stock at that moment.

BUYING IN: For larger orders we usually offer to source the entire list for customers even though we do not stock everything ourselves. This we regard as part of our service to garden designers which reduces the hassle of multiple deliveries to site from several different sources as well as saving time and effort.

CARRIAGE AND PACKING: This will normally be at 10% or 12.5 % of the cost of the order. However these rates would have to increase for deliveries to the Highlands and offshore Islands, or where exceptionally heavy trees or large plants are ordered. Where orders can only be delivered in our own vehicles or on Danish trolleys we will always quote a specific price for each delivery based on the costs to us. (Click here to see more of our Packing Shed in operation).

CREDIT: We always require prepayment for the first trade order. Thereafter, subject to the appropriate bank references, we are happy to invoice for deliveries provided payment is made within 30 days.

OVERSEAS ORDERS: Again, send us the list of your requirements and we will quote by return. Carriage and packing costs will obviously be substantially greater (C.lick here to see more information on Overseas orders).
