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."

Grand Hellebore Sale

35% off all our Hellebores until 29th January

These winter flowering plants are at their best from January - March. Clusters of buds appear on the surface of the soil that eventually push up to reveal luxurious single or double flowers in pinks, reds, whites and blacks. Cut off the larger leaves when buds appear to allow the flowers to thrive. 
Orientalis hybrids are considered the most sumptuous of the genus but other species such as x nigercors, foetidus and niger (the Christmas Rose) all have their own individual characteristics to admire. This year I'm in love with 'Emma' a hybrid between H.niger and H.corsicus (syn. argutifolius) with strong glaucus foliage and tight bundles of pink buds that produce large white flowers. Highly floriferous and long lasting.
