Aeron Acers is a small nursery growing Japanese Acers mainly from seed with an emphasis on providing healthy robust trees of varying size, shape and colour at affordable prices.

The nursery nestles in the beautiful Ceredigion countryside between the Cambrian Mountains and Cardigan Bay, where mild winters and plenty of rain provide the perfect conditions for plants to thrive.

Acers in particular do well as the air stays moist and the acid soil enhances their autumn colours.

I am constantly looking for different varieties of maple to grow and wish to promote an interest in these beautiful trees which both benefit the environment and add pleasure to any garden throughout the changing seasons.

 

I came to West Wales after a long career in the NHS in East Anglia.

Juggling with a full time job, horticultural aspirations, one daughter at University and another finishing 6th Form College, it seemed the perfect time to consider a change of direction and geographical home.

Here in Wales, finding a house with land was a possibility and after surfing the internet for several months we found a rundown farmhouse with over an acre of land on which I could set up my nursery and my husband, who is an artist could build himself a studio.

It has now been almost ten years and there is still much to do but the large paddock at the back of the house now has two polytunnels, several beds for growing acers, shady areas established and natural shelter belts grown.

The south facing garden at the front of the house has been planted with colourful herbaceous plants but I am now attempting to simplify the area to reflect my interest in Japanese styles which I hope will give me more time on the nursery.

At the far end of the smaller paddock I have planted an acer grove which in time will allow visitors to see a selection of mature acers in a natural environment.
