Details for Horticap Nurseries

Horticap is a charity based in its own plant nursery. Come visit us today and enjoy a stroll in our beautiful gardens, bird watch from our hide, follow the nature trail, choose from a great selection of perennials, shrubs and bedding plants in our nursery and in our shop we've got everything for the enthusiastic gardener.

Horticap is a truly unique and impressive place to visit. It is a beautiful garden which is hidden amidst the truly stunning area which is the Harrogate countryside. Whilst it offers a stunning visitor experience for all, there is more to Horticap than you first imagine. This offers a fabulous training and horticultural experience for a range of adults with many differing educational needs. School groups are also greeted with enthusiasm giving pupils the opportunity to learn within the KS1, KS2 and also KS3 curriculum.

Horticap is located on the B6162, Otley Road, and offers visitors almost an acre of beautiful grounds to discover. It is open for visitors from March right through to Christmas. There is even a hide, from which everyone can get to watch the vast variety of birds who regularly visit these well cared for gardens.

The aim of Horticap, is to provide its students who suffer from learning disabilities with the chance to take part in a friendly working environment. This will allow them to their social and domestic communication abilities.

A suitably qualified staff are ably assisted by a number of volunteers to ensure that everyone benefits from the wide range of knowledge available to be passed on.

The idea was formulated almost 25 years ago at Bluecoat Wood Nurseries. Now, there are a range of greenhouses, joinery workshops and classrooms to improve the learning experience for all.
