  • Wildegoose Nursery set in the beautiful Shropshire countryside is the home of Bouts’ collection of Perennial  Violas. It is a small independent nursery, garden and tearoom housed within the old redbrick walls of Millichope Park’s former Kitchen Garden.

    The nursery and tearoom are open to the public from Friday-Sunday 11-4pm during the season. The kitchen garden lay abandoned since the 1960’s but has now been transformed into a new and exciting garden that celebrates its traditional roots along side more contemporary plantings of  perennials and grasses. Coupled with our own interpretation on colour we hope to have created a garden of sustained interest and great beauty.

    Our sales plants are propagated on site from seed, cuttings and divisions (with the exception of those plants that exercise a PVR) to ensure that the plants you buy are the progeny of those you see growing in the garden.

    We garden in sympathy with nature and do not use chemicals, and have also started using peat-free compost for our herbaceous plants.

    The Garden

    The 2 acre Walled Garden is entered through the plant sales area, which showcases the plants we love to grow and hopefully many inspiring combinations of colours and forms to give you ideas for your own garden. The garden is modern rather than a traditional restoration of a Kitchen Garden.

    At the centre of the garden sits the newly restored range of Georgian curvilinear glasshouses, which were restored with the aid of grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Country Houses Association and  now form the perfect backdrop.
