Barracott Plants is a small nursery situated some five miles from Tavistock specialising in shade loving perennials and other herbaceous plants that have architectural interest in the garden.
We pride ourselves in stocking a wide range of plants in certain genera, Astrantia, Bergenia, Convallaria, Disporum, Disporopsis, Polygonatum and Podophyllum to name but a few.
We are open to the public on Thursday and Friday 9am - 5pm from March to the end of September and at other times by prior arrangement when we are glad to welcome visitors we are also happy to send plants by post.
We are situated in the beautiful Tamar Valley with many interesting places to visit such as The Garden House, Cothele House, Buckland Abbey and Dartmoor, we are about one hour away from The Eden Project.
