Lowaters Nursery are passionate about the environment and continue to focus on ensuring their British grown plants are grown using the most environmentally friendly techniques available.

Peat Free

All plants grown on site are grown without peat, using a specially formulated composted bark mix.


Bio-control is used whenever possible, the huge reservoir (harvesting rainwater) ensures minimal mains water is consumed. A field is designated for solar electric panels, limiting the reliability on grid-sourced electricity.

British grown

Out of all the plants grown on the nursery, 70% are propagated on site, with an emphasis on varieties which perform well in gardens.
