Customer Testimonials

Here is a sample of some of the feedback we have received from our customers.

Sue Townsend Garden Design


'Being able to source a fantastic selection of high quality perennials and grasses from one nursery and at a fair price is a garden designer's dream. Regular Howard Nurseries emails with `looking good' and availability lists really help when I am designing my planting plans. I love the relatively new introduction of larger 2L pot sizes for some lines as well as the 9cm and bare root stock. Throughout the organisation the staff are efficient and helpful. I am always delighted to see how much care is taken with deliveries to ensure that the plants arrive in an immaculate and beautiful state! All in all a great nursery!

On a last note, Howard Nurseries' plants feature in two of my Society of Garden Designer's award winning gardens too- so they must be good! '

"We have dealt with Howard Nurseries for over 25 years and nothing excites my staff more than the arrival of the 'Howards' order. There is something intrinsically satisfying about plants, well grown. Our reputation here in the North East is dependant upon quality, lose that in these parts and you lose your customer. I do not have to worry, David Howard's plants are the yardstick by which we at Eggleston judge all other plants, including our own. I have yet to meet a wholesale grower of perennials the equal."

"David has assembled around him a team dedicated and loyal to a man whose reputation for integrity and honesty precedes him everywhere on the horticultural circuit. For these reasons alone we are pleased to grow his plants and and continue to do business with Howard Nurseries. I am also proud to know a man of such 'traditional values' in this modern world. Everyone I have ever spoken to or met at Howards has been nothing less than helpful and courteous. So long may it continue with Christine as well."

"Howard Nurseries have supplied Dove Cottage Nursery with herbaceous perennials and grasses for the last 15 years. Both the potted and bare rooted stock is of good quality and good value. The staff are always helpful, providing excellent service from ordering through to delivery. We recommend Howard Nurseries to anyone looking for a good reliable Perennial trade nursery."
