Garners Nursery

They seemed to be selling big brown envelopes full of beans and peas last time I was in there - minimal packaging and labelling

Wonderful nursery, expanding and using space not only for selling plants but for running courses for the community.
They do bulk spuds onions and garlic loose,  but a large range of seeds ONLY from bristish suppliers,  NOT companies owned by non uk.  I dont have a really big issue with buying from non uk however, would rather support the UK businesses if given the option.

Dove Cottage Nursery, Shibden, Halifax, for hardy perrenial plants

They have a beautiful show garden of the perrenials on sale some of which they have hybridised themselves.

They didn't sell veg supplies when I last visited but for general plants they have a wonderful choice selection.

I second this nursery as well; very good for all those loose seeds/sets, fruit bushes/canes and different varieties of garlic albeit then in bags of three.  Always very helpful and they remember you and happy to have "a chat"!

Quite agree Bombers, I use it too. Also worth a try is Pipers on the A5. It's on the left just after Gailey island. (up the A449 to Gailey, right onto the A5)

So much to do, but so little time.
