Rudies Roots Nurseries


Rudies Roots Nurseries is a family-run business based in Nettleham, which opened in 1997 with the aim of providing quality plants at very competitive prices.

Rudies Roots Nurseries specialise in hanging baskets, seasonal bedding, and its own unique, environmentally-friendly Christmas tree hire service.

We also stock hardy exotics, hardy palms, bamboo, tree ferns and unusual plants, and have possibly the largest selection of eucalyptus trees in the area – all of which are hardy.

We supply many of our award-winning hanging baskets to pubs, hotels, restaurants and the general public, using our own unique compost mix which gives wonderful displays.

Nearly all products are grown at our nursery – without heating – to ensure that they are fully hardy to the British climate and not forced on. This helps us to supply plants that we are happy will grow in your garden.

    • Seasonal bedding plants
    • Basket plants

    • Shrubs
    • Perennials

    • and much more…

Christmas Tree Hire

At Rudies Roots Nurseries we provide a unique ‘living Christmas tree’ hire service.

We grow and supply Christmas trees that have been grown from seed in pots, potting them up every 2-3 years to ensure that our trees have a fantastic root system.

By doing this we can hire out our Christmas trees year after year until they are too large to be handled, at which point they are planted to grow into large trees for village greens, etc.

We can re-use our trees approximately 10 times before being planted, meaning that less trees are sawn-off and killed.

For customers of our Christmas tree hire service we offer a huge 40% discount the following years as long as you keep returning your tree and keep it watered.
