We help test new Botrytis kit that could help save money & plants

We have been assisting with trials of a new test to detect the early signs of Botrytis to reduce the spread of the disease in nursery and garden centre plants (October 2020). 


Our new cold store has helped extend the bare root season

Our new cold store facilities have allowed us to extend our bare root hedging and forestry transplant supply season to assist customers seeking supplies (April, 2020).
 
The recently doubled cold storage capacity means that although the final date for lifting bare root hedging and forestry transplants was March 31 the stock will be prime for despatch throughout April and into mid-May.


A brand-new introduction to our promotional range

We are delighted to have added a brand-new introduction to our promotional range – Agapanthus ‘Poppin Purple’ (March, 2020).

The new Agapanthus will be available from April (2020) onwards.
 


We’ve been granted a licence to propagate Lomandra ‘White Sands’

We’re celebrating after being granted the propagation licence for an award-winning Lomandra (March 2020).

We will be growing Lomandra ‘White Sands’, the first variegated Lomandra. It was also the Winner of Best New Novelty at Groen-Direkt Spring Fair in Holland in January.
 


We’re continuing to modernise our vehicle fleet

We’re pleased to announce that we are continuing to modernise our vehicle fleet with the purchase of another new low emissions lorry. 

This will be our second rigid vehicle in three years, a total investment of £165,000. The new lorries are to replace older vehicles and are much more fuel efficient.
