Ian and Teresa Moss have been specialist growers of hardy and unusual plants for over ten years. Our range of perennials includes the best of the most recent introductions, as well as more unusual varieties and reliable old favourites.
We grow our plants on our own nursery here in Somerset; these are either propagated by us, or, where protected by Plant Breeder’s Rights (PBR), grown from young plants from reputable suppliers. We use the minimum of winter protection, and no heat. We take pride in producing plants of the highest quality that will establish well in your garden and which are also excellent value for money. A comprehensive catalogue of the varieties that we offer is also available together with information on how to order, and we are always happy to offer expert advice on plants and planting schemes.
We exhibit our plants at over 50 shows throughout the year, ranging from prestigious national shows such as the RHS Spring Shows in Cardiff and Malvern, through to specialist plant sales and Rare Plant Fairs. More details on the shows that we are attending in 2013 can be found through the link on this page, and we are always happy to bring preordered plants along to these events.

The nursery is located close to the entrance to the beautiful 3 acre gardens and is open 10am-5pm from mid-March-October (last entry 4pm). Here you will find a wide selection of plants from our range, with the focus on those that are of seasonal interest. Known as the ‘Secret Garden of Somerset’, Kilver Court is a garden for all seasons, and has much to offer the garden enthusiast, with its Gold Medal winning Rock Garden, Charlton Viaduct, Parterre, Herbaceous Borders and Organic Vegetable Garden.
NEW PLANT INTRODUCTION
Polemonium x yedoense ‘Halfway to Paradise’
We are pleased to announce the release of our first new variety, Polemonium x yedoense ‘Halfway to Paradise’. We selected this variety as a seedling from Polemonium x yedoense ‘Purple Rain’; it has pure white, gently fragrant flowers with a beautifully marked purple eye. The flowers are borne on strong stems about 45cm high, above fresh green foliage that is flushed red as it emerges in the spring. This superb new polemonium flowers from May to late September, especially if faded flowers are removed regularly.
Limited supplies of ‘Halfway to Paradise’ are now available by mail order, price £7.50 for a plant in a 1 litre pot, plus postage and packing. Alternatively, plants may be ordered for collection from our plant nursery at Kilver Court Gardens in Shepton Mallet, Somerset.
