The Plantsman's Nursery
Looking across Woottens Nursery towards the Potting Shed
We were established 25 years ago by the charismatic Michael Loftus.

Situated in rural Suffolk nestled on the edge of the village, the Nursery has one of the largest collections of herbaceous hardy perennials in East Anglia.

We also specialise in Bearded Irises, Hemerocallis, Auriculas, Pelargoniums, Hardy Geraniums, Violas and Snowdrops.

With a dedicated team of plant enthusiasts, a border design scheme and an efficient mail order service Woottens truly is the plantsman’s nursery.
"I drove for seven hours through a monumental cloudburst; the
journey was worth it. Woottens is a beautiful nursery."

Repeat Flowering Irises

What can be more rewarding than plants that reflower out of their normal season.
Some of the best of these has to be bearded Irises - often the May display can be short lived if we have a hot spring or flowers can be rain damaged just that week you happen to be away and you end up missing the best show. Some of the most reliable repeat flowering Irises, also known as Remontant Irises, are now flowering in our fields - it is delightful and inspriational to see these spring beauties coming up again. 

One of the strongest remontant Iris germanica is Rosalie Figge (pictured above). A reliable repeat flowerer every year.
