Welcome to Downderry Nursery

Simon and Dawn are retiring after 32 years of living lavender…..and we’re retiring the nursery too!

A big thank you to the many customers who’ve supported us over the years.

It’s been quite an experience creating and running this bijou artisan nursery

and an amazing journey from the little 8′ x 10′ greenhouse in the back garden.

We’re thankful to have been blessed with a great working life in a beautiful part of the English countryside.

The website will remain live to view as an information hub.

The UK’s benchmark lavender nursery.

All our lavender and rosemary cultivars are propagated from cuttings on the nursery using our own stock plants.

This means we can guarantee they are true to type.

All our lavender plants and rosemary plants are grown to culinary herb standards.
