Christine and Paul Davies have lived at Fieldcrest Garden on the Wirral for 16 years, developing what was once a soft fruit farm into a productive English country garden.
The garden covers about one and a third acres which has been divided into different areas, including a large cutting garden.
Our boutique plant nursery specialises in scented plants, herbs and cutting flowers, with an emphasis on encouraging wildlife and eco-friendly practices.

I have a lifelong passion for gardening, particularly growing and cutting scented flowers. Before we moved to Fieldcrest I maintained a modest suburban garden but quickly outgrew that plot! Since moving to Fieldcrest in 2004 Paul and I have devoted plenty of time and energy to creating our own cottage garden, inspired by the great Geoff Hamilton, who is a hero of mine. The garden is made up of large herbacious beds, structured hard landscaping, wildlife-friendly areas that we partly manage and our sweeping lawns. I am particularly proud of our large cutting garden which is full of beautiful, traditional British garden flowers, herbs and foliage.
I love growing flowers – sowing seed, propagating and nurturing the plants, and am delighted after many years to have the opportunity to share my passion with everyone.
In the 1990’s, when we lived in North Wales and I still worked as a teacher, I taught humanities at the Welsh College of Horticulture. I was inspired to learn horticulture and undertook part time RHS horticulture and floristry courses. I love sharing the knowledge I have built up over the years by teaching and taking workshops here at Fieldcrest.
Paul is in charge of all of the heavy lifting and technical side of things at Fieldcrest. An experienced builder and handyman, Paul looks after our lawns, hedges and all of the big jobs, alongside his day job as a business advisor and accountant!
