Browse a selection of home-grown plants and hand-made woodwork and help care for our fantastic moorland landscape. All of the items have been hand-grown and hand-crafted by volunteers, to raise funds for this special place.

All of the plants available for sale have been lovingly grown and tended to by volunteers, to help care for the 2,400 hectares of moorland that make up the Marsden Moor estate.

Visiting the plant and woodwork sale

Plant sales are every Friday starting in Spring, 10am until 2:30pm. The sales are closed during the winter months.

The sales are held in our yard behind the National Trust Marsden Moor office, at the Old Goods Yard, HD7 6DH.

What can I buy?

There's a range of plants for sale; from shrubs to grasses, bulbs to herbs, perennials to house plants, there's something to suit most gardens. Our woodwork volunteers also sell a selection of hand made planters, troughs and window boxes - perfect for even the smallest gardens. They also make bird boxes, hedgehog houses and seed trays, which all make great gifts.


We accept payment in cash and on card (including contactless). All the money raised from the plant sales will help the rangers continue their work restoring the moors after a series of fires, as well as reducing future fire risk and helping wildlife to thrive.


Our plant group are passionate about the plants they grow and can give you advice on which plants are best for your garden. Throughout the year, our plant group volunteers look after garden plants all year round to ensure that there's a great selection of healthy plants available to buy.
