Agapanthus and Other Plants


'Tarka' - Available to buy online


Agapanthus  Specialist Nursery
Pine Cottage Plants  is a small nursery overlooking the Taw valley in rural mid Devon, England. We have specialized in growing and selling  Agapanthus,  for the past seventeen years, and have held  a UK National Collection here at Eggesford since 1997.
From now on  we will retain a National Collection of Pine Cottage named cultivars only, for Plant Heritage. The collection will be on display during the summer months, so do come along and look around.

Growing Agapanthus  We had a very good season for growing Agapanthus last year, the long days of sunshine in 2013 were wonderful for producing abundant flowers and strong plants. Our weather here in Devon is still relatively mild for this time of year, so we have not needed to put any fleece on the plants in the tunnels at all. Long may this continue. Now that March 2014 is a few days away we are beginning to see the Agapanthus shoots starting to show in the pots, so Spring is nearly hear. We have had our first customers visiting the nursery, this means the warm sunshine is making them think about their gardens.

Nursery Opening Times
The nursery is open most of the year Mon - Sat, 10.00am -- 4.30pm but please do contact us first to check, because we might be away from the nursery and don't want our customers to be disappointed on arrival.

Retail Orders

We are able to send out plants most of the year apart from August when the flowers are on high stems and impossible to pack up.  Do have a look in the shop and see the selection still on offer most in 2L pots ready to flower in the season you receive them.
Orders received will be held on file and we will contact you by e-mail to arrange dispatch and payment.

Agapanthus mixed seeds

We are offering packets of fresh mixed Agapanthus seed @ £2.00 each, postage free. Just e-mail us with the number you require
