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."

Focusing on Ferns
Nothing gives a refreshing presence in the garden than a selection of ornamental ferns. They are the best of all the woodland and shade loving plants. Whilst many people are still revelling the current trends of Heuchera and Digitalis for shady gardens we have tended to overlook the diverse range of texture and colour ferns can give us. The deep purple veins of Athyrium against the strong black foliage of Actea create a dramatic display in the border or container. Early pink fronds on Dryopteris erythrorosa highlight the pink throats on Zantedeschia Kiwi Blush. We stock a large range of ornamental ferns - search the website under their Genus or go to the Gardeners Guide Advanced Search and select ferns from the drop down box.
