We know this conifer nursery is rather in the middle of nowhere but it really is worth the trip if you are looking to buy conifers.

All the conifers sold have been grown on site and the owners really knows this business. They started the business in 1978 at Bideford and then moved to their current location.

The growing of the conifers occurs in a couple of large polytunnels. Some of the conifers are grown on their own roots but others are grafted. There is one of only handful of nurseries in the UK which have the expertise to do this type of work.

Grafting conifers onto rootstock gives great control over the size of the adult tree.

Although conifers are by a long way the most popular plants sold at Kenwith Nursery, they do sell some other trees - we saw some good-looking Japanese Maples for sale.
Kenwith Nursery have their own website (see above) and they sell many of their smaller conifers online. Some of the larger specimens however are only sold at the nursery because of postage costs.
A recent trend in Europe, and catching on in the UK is what is known as lollipop style conifers. The name comes from the long stem in relation to the round shaped foliage head. At maturity these conifers grow to about 1 metre high.
Lollipop conifers look great especially where space is at a premium but they also withstand ground frost better than normal varieties. The foliage remains disease and moss-free because it's off the ground.

The nursery layout is basic with a couple of large polytunnels displaying some of the conifers for sale, more conifers and a few other trees are laid out around the nursery. The car park is more than adequate and nearby the nursery sales area. The range and choice of conifers is very large because Kenwith's almost exclusively only sell conifers. If you can't find it here you are unlikely to find your conifer anywhere.

Aside from the plants, we would also recommend the view from the outside of the nursery, so spectacular that we took a video of it (see below).
