Growing Places

We offer fresh, seasonal vegetable deliveries to our local communities through our popular vegetable box delivery scheme. On our two-acre site in Claydon, we grow produce all year round and create garden ornaments from local willow.

We take great pride in providing a friendly, reliable and quality service that contributes to the health of our local community, local environment and local economy. When you buy from Growing Places, you are also supporting other local growers and suppliers too.

Ordering your veg box is easy, take a look at our website to find out more.

Nowton Park Nursery

Take a stroll through Nowton Park in Bury St Edmunds where you will find Nowton Park Nursery within a Victorian walled garden.

There you will find a colourful array of plants to buy or order, including seasonal hanging baskets and plants for your pots and containers.

We also provide plants for the commercial market, including growing the crazy pink petunias for The Angel Hotel's annual eye-catching window box displays.

Look out for our seasonal trailer selling plants outside Nowton Cafe.
