John Cullen Gardens
An award-winning family-run business since 2009

Welcome to our website and online shop

We grow healthy, strong plants, which are all tended to by hand at our nursery in beautiful rural Lincolnshire. We specialise in plants for pollinators, and fine scented and edible plants.

We are proud of the many awards we have won, which include Silver at Chelsea and Gold at Blenheim, and we hold the National Collection of Achillea Millefolium.

We’re passionate about our plants – and we want you to enjoy the very best our nursery has to offer!

Great service with knowledge and plants. I asked for a selection of pollinator-friendly plants for my allotment – John put a great combo together and the bees have loved them! Will make sure I continue to buy from the nursery as they are superb plants, sold by real plant experts.


Great knowledge, nature-friendly ethos, and lots of fun thrown in. I will definitely be going back in the summer to see the national collection of Achillea


Absolutely A1 excellent service. Next day delivery on my order and email updates of order progress. Easily one of the best companies I have dealt with. Highly recommended.
