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."

Ornamental Grasses

As autumn approaches, ornamental grasses really begin to shine and illuminate the garden. The most exquisite of these being Anemanthele lessoniana - also previously known as Stipa arundinacea or Pheasant Grass. This stunning evergreen perennial has golden stems with copper tinted tips, growing to only 75cm high and 60cm wide this grass lends itself to being either incorporated into a border or as a solitary specimen in a pot. In the border Anemanthele goes well with Echinacea, Crocosmia and Heleniums - all late flowering hot colours.

From grand sun loving Miscanthus, whose plumes reach oer 2meteres tall, to grasses suited to boggy shady gardens such as Carex or Luzula. Our favourite grass on the nursery this year has to be Pennisetum orientale Karley Rose. Like all the orientale Pennisetums this grass is ideal for front of border, reaching only 80cm in height with plum red tufty plumes. A stronger and hardier plant than other orientales.
