In addition to the plants, we also offer delivery and planting services, at home consultancy and full design and landscaping services.
Plant selection and expert advice

When you're looking for planting ideas and need advice or perhaps an instant solution, our expert staff are on hand to help and recommend.  Visit us here at the nursery for quality plants, expert advice and inspiration.  We are open 7 days a week.

Plant sourcing

For larger or more unusual orders that fall outside our normal stock ranges, we can source plants from a network of specialist growers and deliver direct to you. You'll receive the best quality plants at the very best prices.

Delivery service

If it won't fit in the car don't worry. We offer a regular and economical delivery service. Our standard area extends 15 miles around Reading in Berkshire but it is possible for us to arrange deliveries further afield upon request.

Planting Service

If you are short on time (or don't have the inclination!) we can plant for you. Our team of experienced landscape gardeners will make sure your ground is prepared to the highest standard and your plants are positioned and staked correctly. They'll leave you with full aftercare instructions and planting warranties.

'At Home' Advice and Consultancy

If you are looking for planting ideas, garden advice or you are considering having a garden design, then a Consultancy Visit from one of our experienced horticulturalists or garden designers can really help.  Meeting with you ‘on site’ and experiencing the garden first hand enables us to provide much more specific advice.

An hourly charge is made (subject to location), but a 10% plant discount will be offered for a single purchase of plants from the Big Plant Nursery as a direct result of the consultancy visit. Click here to find out more

Planting and garden design

For gardens that need more detailed planning, we can provide drawings for individual areas or whole landscape schemes through our award winning design team Creative Landscape. Depending on the scale of your project we can provide simple sketch plans, planting plans, 3D views, Master Plans and specification drawings. This process starts with an initial ‘At home’ consultancy visit after which we’ll  we provide a written quotation and breakdown of design fees.  These are dependent on the scale and complexity of the project and are based on the design time needed. Click here to find out more
