CUSTOMERS and suppliers of Earlswood Plants in Solihull are being assured that there will be a seamless transfer of business when the firm goes into dormancy this month (January, 2015).
The retail plant side of the business will be taken on by the White family, who will sell plants to the general public through Earlswood Garden & Landscape Centre, and the wholesale cash and carry will be transferred to Wyevale Nurseries.
ONE OF the UK’s leading nurseries has this month (November, 2014) unveiled its first Landscape & Amenity Catalogue in 17 years.
Wyevale Nurseries’ new 169 page catalogue lists more than 2,500 lines and all the plants listed in the catalogue are all grown by the company.
Adam Dunnett, Sales and Marketing Director at Wyevale Nurseries, which is based in Hereford, explained: “We are one of the UK’s largest amenity growers, something we are very proud of, but with our tree, transplant and container grown plant nurseries all being separate up until this year, we have struggled to get the message out about our incredibly wide range of plants.
TO LINK in with this year’s National Tree Week a leading UK nursery has revealed some of its bestselling trees this month (November, 2014).
Wyevale Nurseries says in 2014 it has seen an increase in demand for native varieties and also for trees for urban locations, which provide natural shelters and barriers for privacy.
Adam Dunnett, Sales and Marketing Director at Wyevale Nurseries, explained: “Native trees are being requested by architects far more than previously with firm favourites this year being Alnus glutinosa, Betula pendula, Castanea sativa, Prunus avium, evergreen Pinus sylvestris, Sorbus aucuparia and Quercus robur.
On Friday 20th September, Steve Ashworth and Ray Jenkins were invited to the planting ceremony near Alcester, Warwickshire of the millionth tree to be planted in the `Heart of England Forest`.
The Forest is the brainchild of millionaire publisher and tree poet, Felix Dennis who lives locally. Since the start the project has planted more than 175ha of broadleaf forest and is the largest privately owned broadleaf forest in England, though with public access.
ONE OF THE UK’s leading commercial nurseries has unveiled its new customer-focused front-end team this month (June, 2014). Wyevale Nurseries, which recently re-organised from three companies into one to offer customers a ‘one-stop-shop’, has bolstered its expertise with some new roles for existing staff and some new faces too. Sales and Marketing Director, Adam Dunnett said: “I joined Wyevale Nurseries just six months ago. After spending many, many years admiring Wyevale Nurseries both as a customer or a competitor it is fantastic to now be part of one of our industry’s truly pioneering companies.
