Nursery Update Friday, 27th March 2020
We closed the nursery on Tuesday, 24th March, in line with Government requirements.
The work of the nursery will continue. We know many of you are worried that you will miss out on vegetable plants in particular. There is plenty of time, the nights are still cold and although stocks are low at the moment there are plenty more coming on. In fact there are no vegetable plants or tomatoes available yet, but good batches are in production. We will keep you updated on availability – please keep checking this Home Page Update. Our new plant list is also now showing on our website
As from next week, we are now able to offer a delivery service for a minimum order of £40 with a minimum delivery charge of £10 in the local area. The cost for more distant deliveries will be confirmed with order. If you’d like to place an order, please call the nursery on 01225 862 392.
Stay safe and enjoy your gardens.
Payment: We accept the majority of major debit and credit cards for payment (not Amex).
Delivery: We can undertake delivery for larger plants in the local area if you are unable to fit them into your car. Delivery charges are quoted on an individual basis. Please speak to a member of our staff.
Mail Order: Our nursery is very much geared up to personal shopping and unfortunately we are not able to send plants and trees out to customers.
Gift Vouchers: Downside has its own Gift Vouchers for use on our nursery (see under plants) but we do not participate in any of the national gift voucher schemes. More information may be found here.
Disabled Access: Wheelchair users are able to visit the main part of the nursery, keeping to the main paths.
Toilet: There is a toilet – please ask a staff member to direct you, but it does have a step.

We are situated in the village of Westwood, Wiltshire. Located between Bath and Trowbridge.
Sat Nav: BA15 2DE – 143 Upper Westwood. If coming from the Bradford on Avon direction, we recommend you follow the B3109 rather than any ‘shortcuts’ through the lanes! Similarly if coming from the Bath direction, we recommend you follow the road through Freshford rather than the lanes through Iford or Sharpstone.
From Bradford-on-Avon: follow the brown signs off the B3109 (Bradford-on-Avon to Wingfield Road)
From Trowbridge: Leaving Trowbridge on the road to Bradford on Avon, turn left onto the Westwood Road. Head straight across at the Westwood cross-roads and then follow the brown signs.
From Bath: Leave Bath on the A36 (Warminster Road). Go straight over the traffic lights at Viaduct/Limpley Stoke and climb the hill. At the top turn left through Freshford, following the road down all the way through, past The Inn at Freshford Pub and up the hill up to Westwood (you’ll see the signs for Iford on your right). Keep on this road until you see the Downside Nurseries ‘brown sign’ where you turn left. We are 150 yards up on the right. See note above under Sat Nav about avoiding the ‘shortcuts’ through the lanes!
