We still ask that you respect the social distancing guidelines for my staff and other visitors.
Payment can be by BACS or by wireless card machine, to stop you coming into the office. We can still get pre-arranged orders out for collection as we have been doing for the last few months. Local deliveries over £500 will not have a charge applied to them.

Welcome to Rainbow Plants.

We are fully open for trade customers only. Visitors are allowed to browse so long as they respect the social distancing and hygiene guidelines.

We can deliver orders over £500 to Garden Centres and sites throughout the South West

Here at Rainbow Plants we’re a wholesale supplier of hardy nursery stock to garden centres and landscape contractors across the South West, including Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset. We not only offer wholesale plants for sale, but you will always receive a warm welcome from us.

Established for over thirty years on its site in East Devon, our plant nursery is situated on the outskirts of Ottery St Mary, only 15 minutes from the M5 and 5 minutes from the A30 trunk road.

The nursery has been in the ownership of Peter & Diane Rider for nearly 8 years and has grown considerably to include more herbaceous plants, grasses and ferns. We still stock a wide range of the ever popular evergreen shrubs.

The nursery is known for the delivery of quality plants and good service which remains our ethos.

We are happy to accept back used pots that we can send for recycling when you visit the nursery – no point adding plastics to landfill if it can be avoided!

We now have a tractor with a front loader which can load you vehicle with our spent compost that is an excellent mulch around plants or incorporated as a soil improver. No charge but we look for a suitable donation into our charity pot to support the good work carried out by the local hospice.

Our Devon plant nursery

Rainbow Plants is a wholesale supplier to garden centres and commercial landscapers. We are happy to offer a cash & carry service to visitors. We are open from Monday to Friday 8.00 am to 5.00 pm but can be available at other times by appointment.

Our plants are produced from British sourced liners with larger specimens available from specialist growers across the UK and Europe. We use a minimum of pesticides, relying heavily on natural biological control for pests and have regular inspections from DEFRA to ensure plant health is maintained for the customer.
