Welcome to Clifton Nurseries
We have been passionate about plants since 1851. We select plants for both our Nursery and Garden designs to ensure the plants will thrive in their final location. From tree ferns to small flowering shrubs, we want the plants we supply to look good and be in the best possible condition. To complement our plants, our Nursery stocks a wide array of beautiful pots, garden furniture and lighting. Of course gardeners essentials like seeds, compost, twine, and canes are all here too. If you require professional advice or bespoke garden design we have extensive experience. Our principal garden designer is well respected horticulturalist Matthew Wilson. Matthew writes for the FT and numerous magazines, he is also regular panellist on radio 4's Gardeners Question time.
Our garden design ethos is simple; to provide our clients with beautiful, inspirational outdoor spaces that meet their needs practically and aesthetically, and that will be a source of pleasure for years to come. The garden spaces we design are as varied as the needs of our clients; from luxury roof terraces to fun, family orientated back gardens. Regardless of size, style and location our aim is to make the design experience a pleasure, providing you with attentive service and timely communication throughout. Our principal designer, Matthew Wilson, has over 20 years experience in the business, including 10 years with The Royal Horticultural Society, and he's also our MD - so his standards are exacting.
It doesn't matter how good a garden design is, if isn't well executed and planted it will never achieve the potential of the design. We've been making gardens for a long time, over 40 years, and are proud of our record for delivering great results no matter how challenging the project. As a London business our main concern is making London gardens, and we believe we understand the complexities and opportunities of working in outdoor spawands where access is difficult and space limited - in fact, we'd say it's our speciality.
We also understand that the process of making a garden can be a complex, time consuming and at times stressful one, which is why when we take on a project we apply all our expertise in contract and project management to ensure you get the best results at the right price, no matter what size the project.

London's 'Secret Garden'
Clifton Nurseries garden centre is a much loved London institution, and it's easy to see why; Described by Mary 'Queen of Shops' Portas as 'beautiful', who also praised our stock ranges and 'back to basics' approach to gardening, from the moment you arrive at the iconic plant lined entrance walkway, you're aware that you are somewhere special, a 'secret garden' tucked away behind stuccoed Victorian townhouses.
Venture further down the walkway and you'll discover a range of plants, pots, furniture, lighting and garden essentials that really is second to none. We made our role as editors, doing the hard work for you to ensure that the plants we stock are all 'London proof' and our other ranges brim full of beautiful, exciting and unusual items.
You'll also discover friendly, expert staff ready to advise and inspire you and make sure you take home the right products, be it a bag of compost or a set of garden furniture.
