Cottage Garden Nursery
for Garden Centres & Nurseries
A secret of Gateshead that should be shared
A real gardener's paradise whether you are a professional, gardening enthusiast or novice
Cottage Garden Nursery is a family run nursery and was established in 1982 by Loraine and Peter Shotton
Set in over two acres, the nursery still has a cottage garden atmosphere. You are surrounded by a vast array of beautiful plants from the moment you drive into the car park - a real Garden of Eden
Exceptional Value For Money
Prices are extremely competitive. In fact you will be hard pushed to find such prices locally
Together with plants of quality and choice, Cottage Garden Nursery really do offer exceptional value. Which is why many garden centres and nurseries in the Gateshead and surrounding areas cannot match the service of this specialist nursery
Expert Plant & Garden Advice
At Cottage Garden Nursery of Gateshead, Loraine and Peter can give you expert advice and information on your plants and garden requirements
Conservation plays a keynote at Cottage Garden Nursery and you will find unusual and rare plants for the collector, or anyone looking for something different

"Where do we buy from? Not always easy but a lot of the plants re-introduced into the gardens have been bought from Cottage Garden Nursery of Eighton Banks, Gateshead. It is not a conventional Garden Centre, more a proper growing nursery, and the owners and staff really know about the plants and specialise in herbaceous perennials, shrubs, trees and unusual plants.
The plants are always well labelled with proper Latin plant names, as well as the modern names and the cost of the plants is very reasonable. These are much cheaper than Garden Centres, who buy in everything and mark up prices for high returns"
So not your run of the mill regarding garden centres and nurseries
