Hortus loci is the Latin for ‘delightful, knowledgeable people with delicious plants, smiley faces and excellent coffee’.
Ann-Marie Powell, Multi Award-Winning Garden Designer & TV Presenter
“Hortus Loci really are my extended family. I can rely on them to gather whatever it is I need for my projects, and no ask is too big or small. From new and developing small projects to full blown spectacular show gardens, they are simply the best at what they do!”

“Hortus Loci are a highly skilled nursery. Loads of knowledge and experience and super helpful with every project. Great for mature and specimen plants.”
Lucy Hunter, Landscape & Garden Designer
“Hortus Loci are my one stop shop. I know that if I’ve a diverse list that includes 36 Quercus palustris at 18m tall to source for an avenue, a collection of unusual Hamamelis for a new woodland and over 2000 perennials all to be delivered on a certain date they will source all that’s on the list and deliver on the chosen date without demure. Problems are rare, but when they do happen they are dealt with quickly and efficiently and with that all-important sense of humour. I would always recommend without hesitation”
Miria Harris, Landscape & Garden Designer
“When you can say ‘gnarled’ to a nursery and they source you fifty-year-old espaliered pear trees that look like they came from the Kings kitchen garden at Versailles you know you are onto a good thing. But it’s not just with the special stuff that Hortus excels, every time I do a job with them, there is some new plant that I didn’t know of or I’d forgotten about that enters my design palette thanks to their knowledge and enthusiasm. My designs would be much less interesting without them.”

“Hortus Loci is like therapy for Garden Designers!”
Stefano Marinaz, Agronomist and Landscape Architect
“I have been working with Hortus Loci for several years and I have always been happy about their professional and reliable service. They have a fantastic nursery which I love to visit to get the inspiration for our projects as they have an excellent stock of specimen trees, shrubs and large pot perennials. Whatever they don’t have in stock they can easily source it from local or abroad nurseries which they regularly visit throughout the year. I would highly recommend them.”
