Flower selection in The Glass House

Holden Clough Nursery is a family-run, award-winning plant nursery nestled within the picturesque countryside of The Ribble Valley, Lancashire. Specialists in growing hardy plants naturally outdoors, without polytunnels, against the challenging northern climate meaning that the plants get the best start in their growing cycle. It’s said “if it grows at Holden Clough, it’ll grow anywhere” … and it really is true.


Holden Clough is a hidden gem, a destination, a day out…not just for the green-fingered plant lovers.  Step inside the grounds and you’ll find a labyrinth of quirky buildings and interesting nooks and crannies. The impressive Glasshouse is filled with everything from houseplants, garden furniture, gorgeous homewares & gifts. The Potting Shed you’ll find interesting books, seeds, gardening tools and if you wander upstairs, you not only see the most magnificent view of pendle hill through the floor to ceiling window, but an impressive collection of vintage furniture that has been personally and individually handpicked from small independent sellers across Europe.


 A FREE garden design service is available through the new ‘Wonder Garden’, which can be found ‘Down-By-The-Beck…’


Holden Clough also play host to artisan markets, special Christmas markets, creative workshops from themselves and local talented creatives, interesting talks and demos…and not forgetting the delectable on-site café and restaurant, The Reading Room Kitchen.


The Nursery itself is steeped in a rich, fascinating history, with the Frameyard dating all the way back to 1927 when it was the garden kitchen for Holden Clough House, whose owner was a botanist and plant hunter, travelling the world and bringing back plants to the area.  Today, The Frameyard is filled daily with one of the widest selections of plants, trees and shrubs across the North.


Step into the world of Holden Clough, not to be missed if you’re visiting Lancashire… for the wonder of plants, people, and nature…
