About Us

 
Rectory Garden Plants are a third generation nursery based in the heart of rural Cheshire.
 
The Whalley family have been growers since Raymond set up his first nursery back in the 1940's.
Starting out as market gardeners growing salad crops and cut flowers, the nursery has evolved
considerably over time and the family now specialise in the production of hardy herbaceous perennials.

We are only a small team  but enthusiastically offer a vast array of traditional cottage garden 
favourites as well as the very latest in new and unique varieties from breeders around the world. 
 
Everything is picked and packed carefully by hand on the Nursery and delivered
straight to your door by courier.
