Welcome to our website. County Park Nursery is a small specialist nursery in Essex (England) with a large range of several thousand species and varieties of plants.
County Park Nursery was started by Graham and Margaret Hutchins in 1955. Although originally a general nursery we now specalise in New Zealand, Australian and Tasmanian plants, retaining some of the more unusual plants from other areas of the world.
About half of the nursery contains specimen, show and stock plants. Many of our plants are grown from seed which was collected in the wild during four plant expeditions in New Zealand and Australia in 1977, 1981, 1985 and 1990.
We continue to raise new cultivars in several of the New Zealand, Tasmanian and Australian genera. Over 300 new plants have been raised and named at County Park Nursery to date. Several have received prestigious awards such as the R.H.S Award of Garden Merit. We have supplied plants to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, the RHS Gardens at Wisley, Prague Botanical Gardens, and The Saville Gardens in Windsor Great Park (belonging to HM the Queen), as well as to various public parks, exhibitors at horticultural shows, municipal gardens and other prestigious clients.
