Our Christmas season is fast approaching, and from December 1st we will have available a wide range of Christmas trees and seasonal pot plants (see opposite).

On the nursery, we are propagating our herbaceous perennial stock and this is now being put away for the winter. Our full range of plants will be available when our spring season starts on March 1st, 2019.

Our beautiful café remains open for coffee, delicious cakes and light lunches (see below for full opening times).

We are a traditional independent nursery offering a truly inspiring and comprehensive range of plants in a beautiful location high up in the Cotswold Hills.

Just a short drive from Cirencester, Stroud and Cheltenham, our nursery’s magnificent period glasshouses form a spectacular backdrop to our collection of plants, but also uniquely conjure up the atmosphere of a bygone age.

Miserden is a beautiful Cotswold village of honey coloured stone cottages overlooking the dramatic Golden Valley. It's an enchanting place and our site feels magical within it. You can feel that magic when you stroll around, surrounded by some stunning plants and equally stunning scenery. Not only do we have our own display borders, but these are framed by some of the best of the Cotswold countryside.

It’s not just our location that sets us apart, so too does our plant choice as we have the more unusual, as well as the traditional. We are particularly proud of our herbaceous perennials which have been grown on site (a giddy 800 feet up) with oodles of passion and care. So not only will you know where your new plants have been raised, you can be sure they are tough and hardy and well used to the local climate.

To complement our perennials, we also offer superb David Austin roses, alpines, clematis and climbers, ferns, herbs, shrubs, regal and scented pelargoniums and bedding plants.

Hope to see you soon!

‘Growing exceptional plants in a magical setting’


Miserden nestles in the middle of the Stroud, Cirencester and Cheltenham triangle and is easily accessible from both the A417 (north of Cirencester) and the A419.

Christmas at the nursery

Make it your festive tradition and join the hundreds of families who visit us each year to choose their Christmas tree in this magical part of the Cotswolds.

We've been supplying an extensive range of beautiful Christmas trees for almost 20 years and from December 1st we'll be stocking freshly-cut Nordmann Fir, Fraser Fir, Norway Spruce and Blue Spruce trees in sizes ranging from 3ft to 12ft. Our fabulous trees are grown in the West Country by nurserymen with an excellent reputation for quality and care.

What’s on this Christmas:

Christmas Wreath Workshops

We’ve again teamed up with the talented Sarah Champier of The Cotswold Flower Company and will be holding two wreath workshops in our beautiful café on Monday, November 26th and Monday, December 10th.

Sarah, who was Personal Florist to Prince Charles for over a decade, will demonstrate how to make a traditional mossed wreath before helping you to create your own with winter greens and decorations of your choice, from seasonal dried fruit to ribbons and much more!

Last year’s workshop was oversubscribed so book early to avoid disappointment. For details on how to book visit our events page.

Festive Events

We’re hanging out the fairy lights for a series of seasonal events on the nursery and in The Garden Café. On December 9th, it’s all about the kids! Let their imaginations run wild at our drop-in Children’s Christmas Workshop. More details here.

Our Festive Weekend follows with appearances by the Cranham Hand Bellringers on Saturday, December 15. The following day, it will be the turn of Cranham Village Choir to bring some festive cheer. Both performances will be under the sparkling lights of our glasshouse café and there’ll be mulled wine to add to the magic too. And we musn’t forget Albert - he’s our very own Christmas donkey and he will be here at the nursery all day. Guess how many carrots are in his sack and win a prize! For more information, visit our events page.

The Garden Café

During December our beautiful café will undergo a festive transformation and the glasshouse will be full of a hand-crafted wreaths, seasonal pot plants and a stunning selection of Christmas decorations.

You'll be able to shop for that perfect gift, then relax with a warming drink or light lunch. Our autumn/winter menu features ‘Garden Pots’ bursting with bold flavours and vibrant colours. Why not sample the Butternut Squash, Chickpea and Coconut Curry or get your taste-buds tingling with the Brazilian Black Bean and Sweet Potato Stew with Mango and Coriander.

For something lighter, a ‘tartine’ served on griddled bread may be just for you. Delights such as; Grated Beetroot, Hazelnut, Rocket and Hummus or maybe you would prefer Camembert, Walnut and Maple Syrup or a traditional Ham and Cheese combination, perhaps with a hint of chilli jam to add a touch of heat on these winter days!

If you have left the tiniest amount of room, why not finish your lunch off with a steaming cup of ‘Rave’ coffee and one of our seasonal cakes, all served in front of our blazing wood burners. Toasty!
