About Chipchase Nursery:
A Victorian walled garden in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside is the setting for our unique nursery. Between the villages of Wark and Barrasford, in the North Tyne Valley, we grow and sell a vast range of hardy perennials and other plants.
We welcome visitors to enjoy our garden’s labelled borders; packed with over 500 different plants, of interest to both the plant enthusiast and the novice gardener alike. Specialities include hardy Geraniums (over 70), Geums, Trilliums Potentillas, Vincas and Arisaema.
All of our plants are nurtured in the Northumberland climate so they are fully hardy, and most of the plants to be seen growing in the garden are offered for sale.
Don’t miss our shop; which sells a range of gardening and gift items as well as self-serve drinks and snacks; and watch out for special events and activities, arranged throughout the gardening season.
