We’re so pleased to see so many of our customers back and have put all the necessary measures in place to ensure the safety of both our customers and staff.  From Monday 12 Oct we will be open from 9am – 4pm Monday to Saturday and 10am -4pm on Sunday.

We would like to remind everyone that face coverings are compulsory in the retail area and in the café until you are seated, in accordance with the government guidelines.

We hope to see you all again soon!

Our Story

Our history, our future

A family run, independent nursery with a wide range of high quality plants, perfect for the local soil and climate.  We have been growing produce at our site, on the outskirts of Lymington, in the New Forest, since 1947. We have transformed the nursery over the last four years and are proud of our expert team propagating over 95% of our own plants here on the Shallows, splitting and cutting shrubs, conifers, herbaceous and grasses.

Come and visit the nursery and see our wide range of rare and unusual shrubs and conifers.  Afterwards, why not treat yourself to tea or coffee (and sample some of our delicious cake!) in Mabel’s Café, while you relax and enjoy the stunning garden our design and landscaping team have created, and be inspired for your own.  For inspiration or planting advice just ask one of our friendly team.
