    About Us

    Originally a slate quarry, the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery began life producing forest trees in the late 1960s. It started to sell plants to the public in 1974 and went on to become one of the largest and most well-respected nurseries in the South West. Our nursery has grown a great deal since it began over 50 years ago.

    The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery is a small part of the Duchy of Cornwall, but it is very proud of its heritage. The Nursery is located at the heart of the Duchy estate. Whether you’re a visitor on a Saturday morning, a member of staff or The Duke of Cornwall himself, our Nursery is a place for everyone.
