Making simple the supply of quality plants for professionals, designing and building instant gardens

We are an established trade nursery supplying wholesale trees, hedging, topiary and a great many other plants to the professionals who are designing and building our finest gardens. We are based in Swindon, Wiltshire but deliver nationwide and particularly serve trade professionals working in the Cotswolds, M4 corridor and London.

Along with garden designers, landscape architects and developers we are also an approved National Trust supplier and provide many private estates and farms with all their planting requirements including professional advice and site visits if necessary.

Who We Are

We are a friendly and close-knit team of people. You will find us professional but at the same time approachable, easy to work with and with a great passion for sharing the accumulation of knowledge built up over the last 60 years in horticulture.

Our story begins in the heart of the Marlborough Downs, those ancient and rolling chalky uplands where farmers and sheep traders have made a living for ages of time.  This is the wild and windswept landscape that shaped the childhood of founder David Whiteside, and where he returned after the Second World War to grow his family business.

Further back still, David’s great Grandfather was a captain in the Merchant Navy and ran his vessel and small fleet back and forth across the British Empire trading various goods from far flung corners of the globe to earn his living.

So, we don’t sail ships anymore, trade sheep or farm but we do enjoy doing business with many of Britain’s finest garden designers, landscape architects, The National Trust and the Royal Parks.

Here we are then, half a century later, sailing on… A new generation at the helm but the same pioneering spirit is drawing us ever onward…

Welcome on board!

We are here, quite simply, for the people who are designing and building Britain’s finest gardens, for the people who need mature plants for instant impact. 

Our industry experience combined with a deep seated culture of care allows us to support the professional in a way that is not always easy to find.  Our speciality lies in the supply of plants and trees for instant gardens where quality and value are the most critical factors.  All appropriate sundries are available, meaning that the full package can be delivered to exactly where and when you need it.

We recognise that quality goods alone are not enough and would assure you of our full and enthusiastic support at every stage in the process with advice, guidance and backup all along the way.

Ordering is easy. Most likely you are working to a deadline and the last thing you need is to be confused or held up ordering your trees or plants.

We understand that you probably won’t find all the answers on this website and that is why we have a team of dedicated and enthusiastic helpers ready to assist you with any query you may have.

Simply contact us with your project planting requirements and we will submit a quotation as soon as possible. Within 24 hours of recieving the quotation we will normally call to check it arrived with you and that everyting is clear. If you accept the quote we’ll send a confirmation document for you to approve. At this stage we then discuss your delivery or collection requirements and book in the earliest convenient date.

Delivery is nationwide and normally available within a week to ten days from the date of order. Charges are at cost or free at our discretion on large orders and unless asked otherwise we’ll send an unpriced delivery note with every delivery.

We are more than happy to make site visits and in many cases recently this has proved of great benefit to builders and developers who may not have in depth knowledge on the planting aspect of their projects.

Call us on 01793 700 997 Mon-Fri 7:30am to 4:45pm or email us anytime on

If the goods are in stock then they can normally be ready for collection or delivered within 48 hours if ordered before midday. Goods that are not in stock are normally available within a week to ten days, but this does depend on what they are. (Delivery is charged at cost or free at our discretion on larger orders.)

When ordering please advise us if there is sufficient access for the delivery vehicle.

An unpriced delivery note is sent with every delivery. However if you would rather we don’t send any paperwork with the delivery, just let us know.

Our Mission: support people in fulfilling their own goals of value and service to others...

The story of our mission.

We found our mission in April 2011. The family had been in horticulture for fifty five years, Kingsdown was approaching its 20th birthday and nothing was changing much. We needed a new approach. So after some serious thought we employed a business coach. Several lengthy and weary meetings ensued and still we didn’t feel much further on.

Then it happened.

The coach arrived for the monthly meeting as usual, ran through the figures as usual, drank coffee and made funny jokes as usual. Then like a startled rabbit he sat up, jabbed his finger at us and said ‘’The problem with you is you’re product centric, not customer centric.’’ The penny dropped.

For so long we had put all our interest and energies into the trees and plants we grew and sourced for people while our customers, their needs and desires took second place. Once we had grasped this, coming up with our mission was simple. Suddenly we had focus, a reason for existence, a vision far beyond the end of our noses and most importantly a culture of care throughout the team.

Since that April day in 2011 our mission has been put to test countless times and has proven its great value to our customers, suppliers and people of Kingsdown.
