News & Updates

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported our first pop-up cafe this year with the brilliant Klaire from The Witches Kitchen! The sun shone and the nursery was buzzing with people enjoying the tea and cake within the nursery. It was wonderful to see and be part of.

We will have Roo's Kitchen from Witney popping up on the weekend of the 1st & 2nd of July so get the date in your diary!

We now have only a few Dahlias left in stock of each type. If you still want a specific one please order online for collection so you don't miss out.

We have plenty of plants now at the nursery but we have sold out of Salvia Amistad (in pink & purple) and have low stock of Jemima's Gem and Trebah Lilac White.

Our nursery grown 9cm potted Erigeron karvinskianus will be ready for sale from this weekend (10th & 11th of June).

We have lots of Cosmos Purity (the tallest, white variety) which has been grown at the nursery peat free.



We no longer sell electronic gift vouchers due to the difficulties with the technology!

Unfortunately the website and our physical payment system don't work together, making it increasingly difficult to take payment with them in the physical nursery. Sadly Wix do not seem interested in making it happen so we are stuck.

However, if you have already received or been gifted an e-gift voucher previously, rest assured that you can still spend it online and in the nursery.

We will now only sell traditional paper vouchers which can be found here.

We are open again with our usual hours (see bottom of this page for our opening hours)

We have started to fill the benches again with healthy new stock for Spring. Due to how busy the nursery is, I have not been able to update the plant stock page on this website! Our plant stock is moving so fast that I often run out of stock by the time it comes to adding it online so to avoid disappointed customers I've decided to keep the plants to the physical nursery for the time being.

If you have a plant/s you are trying to find, drop me an email here and I will happily let you know if we have one or not. 

Winterbrook Garden Nurseries has been owned by my dad, John Cottrell for over 30 years, although the site has been rented to different tenants over the years. However, back in 2018 he decided to take the nursery back over after it fell into disrepair and between us we have built the business back up and now run the nursery together under the new name Winterbrook Garden Nurseries.

My dad is still works as a full time landscaper but helps out at weekends with a wealth of knowledge and advice!

The nursery is a traditional plant nursery, only selling herbaceous perennials, some shrubs and peat free annuals. In addition to the plants we also source and sell an eclectic range of quirky garden antiques & my prints, alongside quirky homeware gifts.​

The ethos of the nursery is to be as sustainable as possible & we are proud to be one of the first nurseries in the UK to use Posipots which are a cardboard alternative to traditional plastic plant pots and only use and sell peat free compost. We water our plants using harvested rainwater and we do not heat our greenhouses in the winter months. We do not sell bedding plants or vegetables as we are located between two other garden centres which already sell these things.

As a tiny, independent, seasonal business run by father and daughter, we do everything ourselves.

We can offer advice, we will carry purchases to your car and help in any way we can. We can take cash or debit/credit cards (including American Express).

We have a monthly pop-up cafe called The Robins Nest which is run by a local cake baker called Lyndsey. She offers a wide range of cakes and hot drinks including vegan and gluten free treats.

I send out and email and advertise via social media when she will be at the nursery so you can come along and enjoy coffee and cake in the nursery!
