Visit our woodland camellia and blueberry nursery

If you'd like to pay us a visit, we'd love to see you. You can browse our range of camellias and blueberries or seek expert advice from one of us. We are open Monday to Friday 8.30am - 4.30pm, throughout the year (except for 2 weeks at Christmas/New Year). We are also open on Saturdays in October - December and February - April, plus Sundays in March and April. Weekend opening hours are 10.00am - 4.00pm. 

This year we will be closed for Christmas from Friday 23rd December onwards, re-opening on Tuesday 3rd January 2017.


We usually expect to have camellias in flower from late September until early May, but the best times to visit are late October to early December for the autumn-flowering sasanquas, and late February to April for the spring-flowering camellias. If you come during the summer months there won't be much on display as it is the time of year when plants are being potted and moved around, but we will always try to find you the variety you want from our extensive stocks. If you have an unknown camellia you'd like to identify then please feel free to bring in a flower (and leaf) and we'll do our best to put a name to it.


The blueberry PYO is now operated completely separately from the nursery. It normally opens from late July until the end of August, 10.00am - 4.00pm, 7 days a week, but these opening times may vary according to weather and fruit availability. For information about opening times and fruit availability, please contact Josh Benson on 07788 267031.

We are situated between Wimborne and Ferndown in Dorset, easily accessible from the main A31 (follow the brown tourist board signs for Knoll Gardens - we are just down the road).
