When we decided to install a new Taxus topiary feature at Regent’s Park, Kingsdown Nurseries went the extra mile, providing over a period of months many photographs and dimensions of the type of topiary they could offer until they finally found what I was looking for. From then on the process of getting the plants on site (particularly as this coincided with Covid 19 lockdown) was extremely smooth, with the plants well protected during transport.
The stock when it arrived looked even better than the photographs provided for my final selection and were exactly of the size and specification we asked for. They were very helpful in discussing suitable backfill material for the plants to quickly establish and responded to my enquiry about the benefits of using an anti-transpirant spray, suggesting a product I could try.
I would certainly include Kingsdown Nursery in my list of companies to approach for any future large topiary or hedging material tenders and would suggest to colleagues that they consider Kingsdown Nurseries for any plant purchases, particularly large hedging and topiary.

When meeting client expectations is paramount, I consider Kingsdown a key part of my team. At worst, the plants are as expected; nine times out of ten they are better. Deliveries come when they say they will with the correct quantities and their prices are really competitive. Nothing is too much trouble and their reliability means one of the key stresses of the job is removed – clients are happy, contractors are happy and the project looks amazing!
I can’t commend Kingsdown highly enough
Good morning Mark
Thank you for this. I will come back to you as soon as I hear a decision.
I just wanted to note that all of your staff have been exceptional with the service they have provided us over the last couple of years we have been dealing with them.
They tender to our every need and even when there have been a few hiccups along the way it has been rectified swiftly !
You have a great team and I just wanted you to know that ….. but I imagine/hope you know that already !
Kingsdown were so easy to deal with – quick to respond, attentive and their prices really competitive… the Espaliered Pears arrived in perfect condition despite their stately years and instantly looked at home leaning against the old barn, as though it had always been so.
It is always a pleasure to work with the team at Kingsdown Nurseries and as property developers in the high-end market we have found them a perfect fit for our planting requirements. The customer service is consistently polite, friendly and knowledgeable, the quality of the plants in our experience is excellent and the deliveries are punctual. We are keen to offer repeat business to like-minded companies and continue to return to Kingsdown time and time again for our landscaping needs.
Just a quick message to say thanks for the magnificent Carpinus betulus, the client was over the moon. We planted today and they look rather good.
Are there any more of these available?
…I like coming to Kingsdown Nurseries not because you are just a good nursery, but because you are a bit special in this hectic and commercial world.
We are making gardens and bringing pleasure to people … I think you really understand this.
See you in January and beyond.
All the best
Just wanted to thank you for the delivery of super plants on Friday. The delivery driver was utterly charming; the nicest one we have ever had!
I would like to make another order for the Palace and also tell you just how amazing the Tulip Red Shine were in April. They were a huge draw for our visitors and made a new contemporary garden a real highlight.
To one and all of the Kingsdown dream team! It has been another wonderful year to work with you all once again. I hope it continues to be such a happy relationship. Lots of love.
Just to say we planted the hedge yesterday and it looks absolutely fantastic.
Thank you to you and the team.

I have been doing my job for 17 years and over this time I have had to deal with a large number of suppliers, particularly plant growers and nurseries. Without exception they have been unreliable and difficult to deal with. These include some of the really high profile growers in the UK… Kingsdown in my opinion has the edge on customer service, reliability, speed of quotes (helps hugely and is very efficient meaning I can quote quickly and 9/10 I get the job) really good delivery reliability – this is absolutely key to us efficiently delivering our promise to our clients and I have been badly let down in the past with 9am deliveries arriving at 3pm and worse. Your plants are excellent and you don’t seem to mind me returning things! Nothing feels like too much bother and I have appreciated your support over my catastrophic project in M……..n.
Hi Jack, Thank you for your email. I have just bought some young trees from you. The quality was very good, especially the root structure – all combined with an excellent service. I will be recommending you to my friends. Thank you.
To All at Kingsdown,
Thank you so much for getting together the lovely plants for W……….p House.
It was a pleasure to do business with you and I look forward to buying more plants from you in the future.
Hi Nathan – I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, you are blooming brilliant!
Just thought I would let you know how pleased I was with the plants you delivered to Great Somerford for me. The quality was very good. My only problem was just how hot it was when I came to put them in this afternoon!
Just a quick message to say thank you for the plants – excellent quality and great service.
I love coming to Kingsdown – it’s the friendliest place on earth!
Kingsdown have always been very supportive, courteous and offered tremendous help to us every time we place an order or have a quote request. Even when things have not quite gone to plan Kingsdown have always had a solution and been very quick to resolve any issues albeit this has been on a very rare occasion. The Plant prices and quality have always been excellent; this has led to us earning more business on the back of other successful jobs. I feel we are more competitive using Kingsdown in our projects than with other suppliers.
I ordered seven wonderful pleached hornbeam from you last year (girth 14-16cm). I need one more!
Thank you so much for being so helpful throughout this project. The yew looks fantastic.
Thank you so much for the plants and delivery, all looks good and the client is absolutely ecstatic – my first big Essex job has gone well, so thanks to you.
Wonderful service – yet again – they arrived this morning.

We have used Kingsdown Nurseries for some time now and find them extremely helpful and straight forward to deal with. Friendly, professional, quality – no more to say!
Your staff are knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful, they keep you informed and are lovely to deal with.
That looks all in order please go ahead. Thank you for your invaluable help and endless patience!
Friendly, very expert and professional advice – a comprehensive stock of sundries.
Thanks for the gorgeous Buxus on Friday – it looks amazing out the front of the Rectory.. will send you photos.
Thanks very much for getting back to me so promptly and I really appreciate your helpful response …….. which confirms my high opinion of your service.
Thank you very much Hannah for your kindness in trying to track down these elusive plants. Your service is as always very helpful & professional & it is a pleasure to order such good plants from you .
From the largest order to the smallest, Kingsdown is a family run business that really minds whether my clients are happy with the plants they receive. Nothing is ever too much trouble and everyone there is helpful and friendly, without exception.
The pear trees have arrived and I couldn’t be more pleased with them. I was expecting something special and they are certainly that. Without doubt the best plants I have ever bought, and that is after thirty years of gardening!
I moved from my regular supplier to Kingsdown Nurseries a couple of years ago. I’ve never had problems with the quality of stock and the customer service and communication is first class.
Good morning Kingsdown
I just wanted to say thank you for sending me a copy of your Seasonbook.
What a great publication, very inspiring. I’ve enjoyed flicking through it several times already.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the trees – the client is thrilled with them.
Received your tulips and they look great can’t wait to see them in the spring!
Thank you Hannah.
All arrived on schedule and lovely looking plants.
Going in now.
150 trees purchased from you in February—150 growing well—thank you—more next season!
Everyone makes mistakes but it is a mark of a good company how well they deal with them and I do appreciate your swift and comprehensive response.
That wonderful brochure! (The Seasonbook) We keep it in our living room and dip into it. It always makes us feel better just looking at it. You’re very much in our minds now and you’re at the top of the pile -the sheer quality of the brochure says that! Do pass my appreciation.
Just a quick e-mail, thanks for the plants you sent down they where excellent and I will be in touch should I need more.
Good Morning Jack,
Just a quick email to say that plants have arrived this morning all in good order and ready to go in tomorrow – Many thanks for a great service.
Good Morning Nathan,
I thought it might be nice for you to see one of my recently completed projects that you guys supplied plants for. The pdf attached shows some of the design work, before images and then completed images at the end. The client was delighted with everything and was especially pleased with the array of colour in the planting and the quality of plants provided.
Thank you and your team for your continued help, support and great service that you provide.
Thank you for your efficiency, it’s refreshing not to have to chase supplies.
The tree is magnificent and I am really really thrilled and for your companies helpful and efficient service.
Just a quick line to thank the nursery for your taxus baccata pyramids, the quality is fantastic and the client is really happy with them.
I’m sorry I meant to send this last week but I wanted to thank you for all the plants that you arranged to be delivered – they seemed extremely good quality and everything went really smoothly. The client was very happy too and I think we will be doing some more planting in the next month and then the larger borders in the autumn so I will no doubt be in touch.
Just wanted to say thank you for your catalogue (it just arrived in the post), it’s such a beautiful book – lots of inspiration.
I shall be in touch with enquiries in the near future.
Could I put the order in for this quote please. ( You came in at a reasonable price and also I was very impressed with your service and quality of plants last time.)
Good evening Richard,
Just wanted to send you a bit of feedback on our latest order of bushy taxus from yourselves. They were absolutely perfect and exactly what we were after for our client. They are very happy (which makes my job easy) and we had plenty of positive comments from passers-by.
Thanks very much, great plants as always, very happy clients.
I just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thanks for the supply of the Amelanchier multi stem yesterday. I’m not sure you realise just how difficult a find this has been! I have been in contact with SO many suppliers for this tree and have almost gone ahead with what were sub-standard specimens out of desperation to get the job finished. I am however so pleased that I was patient and waited for this one from you guys because it really is perfect for the space. I’m so pleased with how well it’s completed the job it and more importantly, our clients absolutely love it. I planted it up yesterday with some perennial underplanting and an uplighter. I attach a couple of photos below so you can see just how fantastic it looks in-situ, including some taken in the dark with the lights on that the proud new owners sent me from last night!
Looking forward to a visit to your nursery at some point soon when things are a little more manageable for me here!
Thanks again and all the best,
I’ve just been meaning to say thank you so much for sorting this out a little while back and letting me know of the extra great price – delightful to get surprises like that when working to a tight budget at the end of what’s been a huge project.. I’m sure you can understand. You actually really helped me to come in just ‘under budget’ so seriously thanks again and for all your help 🙂
Amelanchier looks pretty happy with where it’s ended up too. Thought you might like to see … most importantly – Client in love with it. Thanks again for your help.
I would like to thank you all. I used to work in customer services, and it is very refreshing to receive genuine excellent customer services. Ernie has been so patient with me. It was extremely helpful that you could schedule us in the first delivery of the day, and your driver even rang me to say he was going to be delayed half an hour when his arrival was easily within the one hour time frame I was expecting. When I turned up at Kingsdown in the last few days of operation before Christmas Shutdown, I just felt that nothing was too much trouble.
So gold stars for everyone, my “Kingsdown” experience was brilliant.
I wish you all well for 2021.
We were very impressed with our first delivery from you, thank you. The driver was very helpful and cheerful, the plants were excellent quality and your sales team have been helpful and efficient throughout.
The only feedback I would give was that it would have been helpful if the driver had been given my mobile number so that he could contact me for directions – unfortunately he only had our office number (which is unmanned during the day currently), but that is minor detail and one we can all try to remember next time!
Many thanks for your help with this order, we look forward to working with you all again in 2021.
Just wanted to say a big thankyou for the beautiful plants delivered to site today , they were all really lovely , bit of a special client , so just wanted to say thankyou!
Hope all’s well.
Hedging at our Teddington project was fantastic. Thank you for supplying some really great quality plants. Attaching a couple of photos of the recently fished project.
Thank you so much for getting the order sorted so promptly. The plants are absolutely lovely, and the clients thrilled, as am I.
With many thanks,
I don’t know how to thank you enough, you and the team give me so much during the year. It is always an absolute delight for me to come to the nursery and find your wonderful plants, and you are always so helpful and kind friends and family, and I am always asking your advice and you are so generous giving it!
So it is me that should be sending you a delicious and fabulous hamper! But in this upside down world you have sent me one! So thank you so much and I will tell my family who it is from and I know that I and they will all enjoy it enormously.
Wishing a very Happy Christmas and New Year, I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the fagus hedging, I can’t tell you how happy I am with it 👍 (66 instant ‘square clipped’ hedging units 200/225cm tall x 60cm x 60cm)
Firstly huge thanks for all your help with the Fawley delivery – it has been a huge success and they are very happy.
Secondly thank you to everyone at Kingsdown for all their help through the year – you are a great team to work with.
And finally for my wonderful hamper which was waiting for me when I got back exhausted last night – the family opened it up in great excitement – thank you!
You all deserve a good break and let’s hope 2022 is a good one all round.
Thank you for dealing with this so swiftly. The trees are lovely, planted and I’m pleased with everything Kingsdown have provided and Alex has been exemplary in her support too.
Thank you for this invoice.
Could I ask that you pass on my thanks to the delivery driver, who couldn’t have helped me more if he’d tried… what a lovely man and he really saved my day.
Thanks so much for phoning and good to hear from you.
The project you provided us planting for in Surrey is looking incredible, I must say. I particularly like the Salix exigua and must remember that in future whenever a client asks for bamboo!
Delighted with the bulbs, the quality was great and they were delivered quickly and on time.
Thank you so much for all your help throughout the past year, couldn’t have asked for more support.
You’ve been so helpful with resolving problems, and I can now sleep at night again. Your seasonbook has been really helpful in inspiring my clients and giving them ideas.
It’s been amazing working with all the team at Kingsdown, thanks so much for your help and support and hope you all have a lovely Christmas.
Hello at Kingsdown
Thank you all for the amazing support this year. From prompt phone answering through efficient estimating and scheduling to the helpful and kind deliveries on busy roads and narrow lanes across Bath. I am grateful for your team work.
Look forward to working together in 2023!
I’d just like to say that Antonia is great. Really fast with replies and super helpful generally. Service level really does make a difference.
Thank you and speak soon
I’m not sure if you’re the right person to thank but a big thank you for lovely quality trees and yew balls delivered yesterday to The Crown.
It was all so smooth and simple. The tree planting worked so well, having received your guidance a few weeks earlier. The telehandler was a godsend!
Thank you and the team very much.
