About Us

Here at Shield Green Nurseries we are a family run business that has been established since 1970. We have 3 generations of growers here, Jim and Marjorie Robinson, Kathleen and Steven Dunn and Graeme Dunn. We offer an extensive range of perennials (herbaceous and alpine) and shrubs alongside seasonal bedding and basket plants. This includes perennial favourites such as Lupins and Delphiniums alongside the more unusual plants not often seen at garden centres. As we are a nursery and not a garden centre our focus is on growing hardy plants from young stock that will thrive in your garden all at an affordable price.  We are situated in Northumberland near the market town of Hexham, (2 miles south) at 513ft above sea level so we pride ourselves in the hardiness of our plants. Our plants range in size of pots with alpines in pots from 9cm up to 1 litre, herbaceous in anything up to 3 litre pots for larger specimens and the same with the shrubs. They are grown in a quality compost with a 12 month slow release fertiliser, so no need to plant straight away.

Visit our Nursery at any time (call or message first 1st of October through to 14th of March) or between the hours of 10am and 6pm Monday to Saturday or 10am to 3pm Sunday (15th of March to 30th of September). Or, visit us at Hexham Market Place where we will have a selection of our plants that are looking good at the current time of year. We are there all year round Monday to Saturday from early morning through to 5pm, you will also find a selection of fresh eggs, cut flower (some of which are grown at our Nursery) and wild bird care products.
