Our friendly family run business is able to provide carefully selected bedding plants all year round. Unusual and distinctive varieties which we grow from seed at our nursery in Timperley, Cheshire are popular across the UK and internationally. This has earned us the reputation for being able to supply ‘something different’ whilst achieving consistently high standards.


We pride ourselves on fast and efficient delivery aiming to supply an order within 48 hours using our own transport fleet. The Danish inter changeable trolley system ensures that ’empties’ can be swapped for full orders in 10 minutes.

Recent contracts include the supply of bedding plants for Scunthorpe, Halton Borough Council, Coalville and Manchester City Council, We use quality seeds from the top international breeders including Ball Colegrave of California, Dutch suppliers Florensis and Syngenta and Sakata of Japan.
