About

D K plants is run by myself, Dave Knox. The nursery offers a wide range of rare and unusual perennials plus many favourites which I have collected over many years. I have several of my own introductions, including two Primula, 'Lipstick Pink' and P. florindae 'Crimson King', plus several geums from my breeding programme and also a number of shrubs and alpines. Ninety-five percent of the plants are propagated by myself. I have no horticultural training, and am a self-taught propagator.

I have had the pleasure creating displays at shows for many years, mainly the Harrogate Autumn Show, where I achieved silver, silver-gilt, gold and the prestigious Premier Award. I was also awarded 'Best in Show' at the Blenheim Palace Flower Show in 2016.

My nursery is based in a very small village called Freehay, just outside Cheadle, Stoke and  three miles south of the famous Alton Towers theme park. Visitors are welcome to visit the nursery from April to November inclusive. Opening times  are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10am until 4pm then 6.30pm till 8pm. Saturday and Sunday are also possible, if I am not at a show.

If you are travelling a distance to visit, please ring or email two or three days prior to your visit to avoid disappointment. Groups are very welcome to visit the nursery, particularly Garden Societies, etc. There are no toilet facilities on the nursery but the Queens Arms pub across the road can offer refreshments and toilet facilities.

Plants can be ordered and collected at fairs and shows I exhibit at up and down the country. I do not have a website at this moment in time but if you would like to give me a ring and chat about my plants or email me your wish list two days before the fair or show I will be more than happy to bring them along.
