From 2017 we will be open by appointment only, Monday - Friday, for the collection of orders previously placed on line or over the phone. Sadly we found that the sales area was not justifying the work that went into it and we are now using the space more effectively for growing more lovely things and plant despatch.

Telephone

By the nature of a plant nursery, the office is not always manned (we spend our days producing plants and sending orders ). Mornings, early in the week, are often the best time to find us near a telephone. Email is usually the quickest way to get a response.

How to Find Us
Long Acre Plants is signposted in both directions on the B3081 between Charlton Musgrove and the A303.
From the A303 at the Tinkers Hill exit, take the road to Wincanton/Bayford. At the Hunters Lodge take the B3081 to Bruton and Charlton Musgrove, after half a mile you will pass Hillside Farm on your left, the road narrows and slopes down and you go through a dip with a stone house (Whitelodge) on your right. Please indicate right! As you rise out of the dip there is a small lane on the right. The Nursery is 50 yards down this lane. Please park carefully.
From Bruton
Take the B3081 to Wincanton and Gillingham. After about 5 miles as you rise up a hill before you get to the Racecourse, you will see a sign post pointing left to Gillingham, again the B3081. Take this road and drive right through Charlton Musgrove. A series of winding bends and eventually a sign pointing right to Rectory Lane will follow. Don't take this but travel 200 yards further on to a small lane on your left. The Nursery is 50 yards down this lane. Please park carefully.

We are three miles or so from the new Piet Oudolf garden at Hauser & Wirth in Bruton, Somerset. It's a beautiful garden to visit and has its own restaurant. Best to contact them ahead of time to book at table. www.hauserwirthsomerset.com/garden. We also have the National Trust Stourhead Gardens just to the East of us, the most beautiful landscape garden at any time of the year.
