We are a dedicated plant nursery and we grow the vast majority of our own flowers, shrubs and plants and provide the highest quality, freshest plants at the cheapest prices.
We have spent the last 60 years helping the gardeners of Leicester create awesome gardens without spending a fortune. We do this by growing all our own plants with care, in large quantities, and then charging the lowest prices
Parsons Nursery is a family run garden centre in Leicester. For 3 generations we have been helping the gardeners of Leicester and Billesdon add colour and variety to their gardens and homes.
We started off as market gardeners in the 50's. We grew plants and vegetables to sell in the markets. This long history, rich heritage and deep knowledge of how to tend to and grow beautiful flowers, plants and shrubs has been passed down over generations. This now helps us produce the freshest, reasonably priced plants in the area.
With the advent of large, impersonal, modern garden centres selling everything from shoes to cakes, an authentic plant nursery like ours is a welcome change for the true gardener. To some we might seem ‘old fashioned’ until they see the quality of what we produce and experience our much lower prices.
We also believe that, as a gardener, you will appreciate how well we look after our plants. Experience the transparency of our growing process and of course benefit from our cost-effective pricing.
We have chosen NOT to build a café, sell shoes and clothing, tables or BBQ’s. We are a plant nursery through and through and we hope you will appreciate the love we put into our plants and the quality of what we sell.
The vast majority of our plants are grown on site so you are always buying nursery fresh plants.
Pesticides are an absolute last resort. We introduce natural predators to control pests such as aphids. We also use symbiotic microorganisms to promote robust root systems, giving your plants the best start possible.
While the frost has taken hold of gardens across Leicester, we are camped out in our polytunnels and heated benches preparing everything for spring.
When our garden shop doors open on March 1st each year, we have lots of lovely fresh plants ready for sale.
