Welcome to Hedgehog Plants & Gardens

Welcome to our new website, we hope very much that you enjoy your visit!

We are Simon & Jay, aka Hedgehog Plants & Gardens and we pride ourselves on both the quality of our plants and our friendly & knowledgeable service

Our family run, independent nursery is just outside of Bury St Edmunds in Risby, open 7 days a week from March till September and 6 days October till February. Full opening times available on our “Contact Us” page.

Whilst we will always try to help, with the serious threat to British horticulture from Xylella fastidiosa, we ask that you do not bring live plant material to the nursery or to shows for identification or diagnosis.

The majority of our plants are grown right here at Risby whilst the rest are from other, small, local growers. As there are only 2.5 of us, we are unable to offer a mail order service at present but are more than happy for plants to be ordered via phone and collected from us at the various shows we attend throughout the year. See our “News & Events” page for further details.

We welcome visits from Clubs & Societies, please contact us to arrange suitable dates & times.

Also at Risby Barns are 2 large antique centres, Lizzy’s Cafe, a framers, a quilting & sewing centre, a Country Furniture store & Colin’s workshop. There is also free parking on site.
