Eddington House Nursery on the Isle of Wight has just hosted one of the Island’s most popular annual garden shows, the fifth Isle of Wight Rare Plant Fair.
The Spring Rare Plant Fair played host to headline speakers such as Anne Swithinbank and Derry Watkins and saw garden lovers flooding to the nursery to choose from the outstanding range of rare plants on offer.
Eddington: Not a garden centre
At Eddington House Nursery you’ll find rare plants that you’re not going to see anywhere else on the Island.
All their plants are lovingly grown at the Nursery, where they focus on ornamental plants they’d only grow in their own gardens.
Their range is always tried and tested, stocking “good doers” that are popular with customers.
As you might expect, the range of plants on offer at Eddington House changes as new varieties surpass the older ones.
Visit the Nursery during any season and you’ll see them trialing dozens of specific new individual plants or whole groups of plants.
Succulents are proving very popular at the moment and Eddington have geared up to propagate up to 100 new varieties this year in their newly-built greenhouse.
Where and when
The Nursery is open daily between 10am and 5pm and can be found on Eddington Road (PO34 5EF) – the B3330 – which runs between St Helens and Nettlestone.
From Nettlestone the Nursery can be found right on the second sharp bend after exiting the village, opposite St Helens Church. Look out for the first wooden gateposts.
