“Derry Watkins is mad about plants, and you can see this in her ever-evolving collection. The nursery, small, compact and overflowing, spills almost imperceptibly into Derry’s garden, which billows downhill and away below the house.”

Dan Pearson, The Observer, 12 August 2012 


“Personally … I cannot get enough of Derry Watkins. Or her plants. Or her seeds. She runs Special Plants Nursery in Wiltshire, near Bath, which sells a fantastic range of both hardy and tender perennials as well as an amazing range of herbaceous and rockery plants.”

– James Alexander-Sinclair, The English Garden, July 2011

“I was totally and utterly besotted with the garden!  My “gardening student” hat went out of the window as soon as I stepped into her garden.  I didn’t care what the plants were.  I forgot to make notes of stunning planting combinations.  But immersed myself in the colour, texture and form of Derry’s October Garden.”

Karen Hall, Dyffryn Ardudwy.
