Seeing how much I’ve done with my day makes me feel proud.

At Stakeford Nurseries our network of polytunnels, greenhouses and outdoor plots gives individuals the chance to learn about gardening and horticulture, from the basics of sowing seeds and watering plants, to more complex work involving preparing soil, planting seasonal vegetables and learning about crop rotation. We also cater for those who are more artistically minded, with lots of opportunities for making decorative displays such as hanging baskets and wreaths.

You don’t need any prior experience or knowledge to join us as we have a team dedicated to helping you learn. All you need is an interest in gardening or horticulture and an eagerness to participate. Stakeford Nurseries can be a great opportunity to meet new people and socialise whilst getting your hands dirty and learning a whole host of new skills.
