"I have been selling plants for four years, mainly Campanula, but I have been inspired to extend the range to cover more hardy plants," said Wooster. "Bearing in mind how difficult the economy has been, it has required quite an extensive investment. But I'm sticking my head out and attempting to achieve something quite unique."
The nursery will stock more than 300 varieties, around half of which are Campanula. It is located in a three-acre walled garden at Langham Hall shared with Langham Herbs. Polytunnels and beds in the walled garden and two acres of growing land at Wooster's Norfolk home will supply the plants.
A formal launch was held last Sunday (28 March) in conjunction with the National Gardens Scheme open garden day at the hall.
Langham Hall has a new joint venture with three local gardens offering a combined ticket to visit all four. The others are Wyken Hall near Stanton, the Kitchen Garden in Troston and Lucy Redman's Garden in Rushbrooke.
Wooster, who helped develop the scheme, hopes the idea will help drive visitors to all the gardens. "We are calling them 'Gardeners Fridays' and the first one will be on Good Friday (2 April)," she said.
"I'm confident it will be a success and provide an opportunity for people to visit interesting local gardens. It's a chance to sell beautiful plants in a unique setting."
