Gaze Burvill
Quality outdoor furniture using oak and marine grade stainless steel.          

Les Jardins du Roi Soleil
Château de Versailles orange tree boxes made of cast iron and solid oak. These boxes are extremely strong and can be planted with palms, laurels, coniferous trees etc.      

We supply some of these products but you must acquaint yourself with the remarkable Mr Hobson anyway (another member of the AP alumni).                 

Room in the Garden
A wide range of plant supports, arches, gazebos and furniture, hand crafted in England using traditional methods and quality materials.

non gardening sites

Matthew Burt
Great teak woodwork.

Molecular Expressions
Fabulous. Soar through space starting at 10 million light years away from the Milky Way down through to a single proton in Florida in decreasing orders of magnitude.

Paul Cox
The lovely illustrations on our website, in our catalogue and seen around the nursery are by the immensely talented Mr. Cox.

The Linen Shop
This is a fantastic place for woven fabrics, which can be hand made into curtains, blinds and cushions amoung many other items.

Timothy Richards
If you have an interest in architecture (we do), then you'll love the miniature representations of some of the world's most beautiful buildings. You'll see some of his bookends demonstrating classical orders of architecture at our Nursery. Timothy Richards is a genius.
