Customer Comments


It's always a delight to visit McLaren's nursery to buy plants. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It doesn't matter if I've come for a specific plant, I always end up walking round admiring all the other plants. I've purchased trees, shrubs, climbers, conifers, grasses, roses, alpines & bedding plants, as well as tree stakes and compost - everything is great quality. I highly recommend McLaren's nursery. I always look forward to my next visi
