Darsham Nurseries is a work-in-progress by David Keleel and a team of collaborators committed to creating a unique destination. First and foremost it is a plant nursery, from which many parallel endeavours have grown, all sharing a common approach to quality and a simple aesthetic.
The project began in 2007 when David and his partner Willie Williams took over the near-derelict premises and opened the nursery. The transformation was slow going but finally the shop and café opened in 2014, with the landscaping service commencing in 2016.
The nursery has attracted many loyal customers, to whom we are very grateful. The café has become quite the meeting place for people from all walks of life. Some are drawn to Darsham by the uniquely-prepared home-grown food (and the wine list), some come for plants and horticultural advice, whilst others come to find unique gifts, art and housewares that may not be available elsewhere.
