About Us

Morehavens Camomile Nursery is a family-run nursery, established over 40 years ago by my grandfather Lt Col F R B Moore.

My grandfather was a friend of Dorothy Sewart, the botanist who discovered the Treneague cultivar Anthemis nobilis ‘Treneague’ (now classified as Chamaemelum nobile ‘Treneague’) at her home in Lower Treneague, nr Wadebridge, Cornwall.

Upon Dorothy Sewart’s retirement, my grandfather established Morehavens Camomile Nursery to specialise in the cultivation of the non-flowering ‘Treneague’ plant cultivar.

My aunt Ann Moore, continued the family business, adding to the collection by growing the dwarf variety of fragrant no-mow lawn chamomile (camomile), known as Chamaemelum nobile dwarf or ’Roman’ chamomile. This variety produces an excellent chamomile lawn that establishes on chalkier soils.

My cousin Liz took over the company when my aunt retired moving the nursery to Hampshire and continuing to grow the business with great success.  Liz developed the website and Morehaven's online presence. 

Last season, after dedicating many years to Camomile growing, Liz decided to pursue an alternative career and has handed over the reins to both Anna (sister in law) and myself.  We now have two nurseries one in Farnham Surrey and the other in Winchester, Hampshire.  We garden as naturally as possible; promoting gardening practices beneficial to wildlife and encouraging and protecting the nature around us.

All of our plants are 100% grown in the UK. 

Happy gardening!
