About Us

Harper and Debbage is a small independent (mail order) nursery based in Norwich, Norfolk specialising in Fuchsias.  Owned and run by Kristopher Harper, with help from family and friends at busy times of the year and at shows and events. The nursery was established in 2016 with Fuchsias at its heart.

All our plants are grown and propagated on site. Which means we can offer a wide selection of high-quality plants. We pride ourselves on quality, value, and customer service.

Back in 2009 Kristopher Harper established the James Lye Fuchsia Collection as a hobby to preserve, research and archive the legacy of James Lye, a Victorian fuchsia hybridiser from Market Lavington in Wiltshire. This collection was recognised by Plant Heritage as a National Plant Collection in 2012.

Due to the popular demand for young plants from the Collection, and enquiries about other fuchsia cultivars, Kristopher established ‘Harper & Debbage’ to facilitate the growing and sale of fuchsias plants. These are sold via our online shop and at shows or events we attend.

In 2015 we exhibited our National Plant Collection at the Royal Norfolk Show our exhibit received a Bronze Medal. In 2016 we attended our first RHS show at Hampton Court Flower Show and our exhibit received a Bronze Medal.  We returned in 2017 and were awarded a Silver Medal for our exhibit. We had hoped to return to RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival in 2020 but this was prevented by the Covid-19 pandemic and in light of this we made an early decision not to attend any shows in 2021 but hope to return to exhibiting in the future.
