Darby Nursery Stock has been serving the garden centre industry since 1963 & remains committed to growing Great British plants for Great Britain’s gardens.
We grow an extensive range of trees, shrubs, climbers, clematis, herbaceous & soft fruit, from old favourites, to the unusual as well as introducing new varieties each year. We focus on varieties that we know will sell well in garden centres and perform well in gardens. Many of our plants hold the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.
New introductions are an important part of our offer. We invest considerable time into finding & trialling new plants. Initially, just 10-30 plants of each variety are tested. Potential ‘winners’ are selected & taken forward for commercial trials of 500 plants. If successful, the variety will be put into full production with a promotional programme in year 3.
The plants are enhanced with bespoke ‘Temptations’ branded labels, which feature RHS AGM & RHS Perfect for Pollinators symbols where appropriate, together with useful information for gardeners.
