Thorncroft Clematis

Thorncroft Clematis Nursery only grows and sells clematis.


Our 'family run' nursery specialises in clematis. We grow the well-known cultivars, many of the new introductions from around the world, evergreen and herbaceous clematis as well as some of the less common species.

What began as a hobby many years ago, has gradually grown into a business. Over those years, our passion and knowledge of clematis has also grown. With the help of Ruth's parents, Geoffrey and Dorothy Tolver, Thorncroft Clematis Nursery opened to the public at Easter 1989.

Our nursery team consists of us, Ruth and Jon Gooch; Gill (who you are likely to speak to when you telephone) deals mainly with incoming orders and enquiries and our son Peter manages the production of the plants.

Our garden, beside the nursery, is home to well over 300 clematis. We have used it to demonstrate the many different ways clematis can be grown, proving that you do not need a wall or fence to grow these versatile 'climbers'. The garden is open, free of charge, when the nursery is open.

The nursery is no longer open to the public unless by appointment to collect plants purchased from our website. We will however, be holding special nursery open days and you can see us at many of the events and shows in the county.
