Welcome to Seagate Nurseries




All available bareroot irises


 ready to order online now. 

(Dispatch during Aug/Sept when the plants are ready!)

Limited quantities available


Many irises and choice peat free perennials available in pots on the nursery! 














The Nursery is situated on the A17 at Long Sutton, don't panic if you miss our entrance as we are between two roundabouts!

 New ownership in 2018 means a lot has changed on the nursery, new and old customers will find our larger sales area packed with interesting and unusual plants to accompany the iris selection. 

We are also attending plant fairs and building up a selection of plants by mail order, many of which we share on our social media.

On the nursery we only use peatfree compost, most of the plants are grown by us and propagated in house, our aim is to propagate all our own peatfree plants.
