Downside is a traditional family-run retail, working nursery set in over three acres situated in Upper Westwood, between Bradford on Avon, in West Wiltshire and the Peto Garden at Iford and Freshford near Bath.

We supply private gardeners, landscape gardeners and some garden centres in Bath, Wiltshire and surrounding counties with an unrivalled choice of quality plants stock much of which is grown on site.  If you are looking for the best seasonal flowers and shrubs of the highest quality you need look no further than Downside Nurseries. Whether you want to plant up a complete new garden, a border, or container for your patio, we’ll have just the right plants for you.

Here at Downside, we regularly trial new varieties, testing for garden performance and disease resistance.  Sometimes you can find a new variety of plant here well before it becomes generally available!

The Young family have been running Downside Nurseries for nearly 50 years and have earned an enviable reputation for being “The Gardener’s Nursery”.
