Mucklestone Nurseries in North Shropshire / Staffordshire

church-farm-2This is our second plant nursery in the Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire border where we grow those of our plants which prefer the cooler, wetter, more acidic water and soils, typical of the north and west of Britain. As well as hardy trees, shrubs and perennials , We also keep some of the less hardy calcifuge plants from South Africa, Chile or Australia, suited to areas like the Wirral or Anglesey, that we cannot keep in Kent due to the harder water and lower humidity, complimentary to the chalk and drought tolerant plants  we grow in  East Kent. 

The plants that are grown and propagated at Mucklestone have the RHS plantfinder location code MMuc. in our online catalogue. We regularly travel between the two sites , so look through our catalogues and lists and send us your ‘wish list’ and we can put them together for you for collection or delivery from either site – Louise 07714241667, 

Specialist Plant Centre

church-farmMucklestone Nurseries is run by a small part time team, led by Chris, 07708 534356 . It is not a ‘Garden Centre’, so does have the seasonal bedding plants,  seeds , or  retail sundries etc. offered at our Kent site. It is only open for limited hours. The garden areas and arboretum extend around the Farmhouse, Nursery and Business centre areas allowing the maintenance of stocks for propagation of a wide range of plants of proven name, hardiness and suitability to the area.   



Mucklestone Nurseries is in a stunning location, with views across Shropshire to North Wales and across to Mucklestone Church, where generations of William’s family served the parish as Rectors of St. Mary’s.  Beyond the Garden and Business Centre areas lies extensive  permanent natural pastures  and meadows, ancient woodlands, ponds and wild bird and insect areas managed to enhance these varied habitats for amenity , biodiversity and carbon capture. 

A Spring Woodland Trail , starts from the nursery.  Items of of geological, botanical and general interest can be seen along the route. A full copy of ‘teachers notes’ and a map is available to download.  It can be taken during opening hours, or by prior booking during April and the first week of May- before turn out of the livestock.
