Knoll Gardens


We continue to be very busy with mail order though we are now achieving turnaround times that are closer to our usual time of up to 14 working days.

We are delighted to be able to offer timed slots for customers to visit the nursery and gardens. These slots must be pre booked via the shop page of the website. Orders can also be placed online for collection from the nursery but please do not travel until we have emailed to let you know that the plants are ready to collect.

Caring for your grasses

Grasses are such a beautiful, tactile and useful group of plants to use in our gardens; and all they ask in return is for a small amount of fairly easy annual maintenence to keep them looking good and happy for another whole year.

Easy as it is, one of the most popular questions we are still asked by our customers is how to look after grasses. You are of course always very welcome to contact the nursery with specific questions but to help we have put together a photo gallery and even a short video to help explain what to do.

If you are not quite sure what is needed take a look at our ‘How to Look After Grasses‘ gallery which has both images and some text to help answer your questions. (Dont forget to hover you mouse over the individual images to see the full text).

Should you have mostly the larger wow factor deciduous grasses then why not take a quick look at our gardener, Luke, preparing the Decennium border in a short video.

Should you prefer a paper copy of our suggestions then Neils book ‘Designing with Grasses‘ has a whole chapter dedicated to the maintenence of grasses in easy to understand language.

And finally, should you wish to combine a visit to the gardens here with learning all you will need to know about this wonderful group of plants, why not book a place on our masterclasses when the gardens are at their peak and Neil will take you on a tour of the gardens to look at every aspect of gardening with grasses from planting and aftercare to design and selection.
