All about Histon Plants


Welcome to Histon Plants. We are a small, local run plant nursery based in the village of Histon, 3 miles north of Cambridge. We are open all year round, 7 days a week, 9am - dusk.

Established in January 2011, Histon Plants has continued to grow, so that we can now offer an extensive range of plant species to cover every season, allowing you to have colour in your garden all year round!

Our plant selection changes throughout the year to match the seasons. In winter/spring we have potted bulbs, winter/spring flowering annuals and perennials for sale. From spring onwards we sell fruit/veg/herb plants, potted summer flowering bulbs, summer and autumn flowering annuals and perennials. **See 'Plants' page for our full available plants list.

All of our plants are professionally raised by us on our nursery, from seeds, bulbs or cuttings, right up to the finished saleable plant. This means you know your plants have been cared for correctly by professional nurserymen every step of the way. This also means we can cut out the middleman and offer our plants at around half the price (or less) of your local garden centre!

At Histon Plants we are 'bee friendly'. This means the majority of the plants we sell are specifically sourced with bees in mind. Most of our plants are loved by bees/butterflies. ** See 'news' page for more info.

We are ever expanding our plant range and eventually we intend to purchase more land and expand even further, so we can offer an even larger range of plants and other gardening related products.

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer mailorder plants. If you want to purchase our plants, you will have to come to our nursery in person (details on the contact page). We do offer a local plant delivery service within 5 miles of Cambridge, subject to a minimum order and delivery charge. See our 'Services' page for further information about this and our other services. We do hope to offer a mailorder plant service in the future, so that wherever you are in the country, you can order from us online and we will post the plants out to you.

Thanks for reading this page and we hope to see you at Histon Plants soon!
