The life of a plant begins here.


Year 3 in the life of the plants.

Almost ready to go outside and finish.


Attractive bespoke POS

adds the finishing touch.











The nursery site was purchased as a 5 acre smallholding in 1952 and a company was formed to contract grow herbaceous plants for mail order business and Woolworths. This was how plants were sold to the public in those days. The founder Nico Ellerbrook came to the UK in 1948 from Boskoop in Holland and had a family history deeply involved in growing premium quality ornamental plants for export and this knowledge was put to good use in the new business.

Eventually the nursery began to specialise in ericaceous plants and due to the high quality of the plants offered the business expanded rapidly. As Garden Centres began to become a popular destination to purchase plants the company changed its production methods into offering plants in container pots to increase the selling season.

Many of those early customers are still with us and we value very much our long term trading partners. Our aim is to support customers old and new with high quality POS material, with the best and latest varieties grown to a very high standard.

All this is backed up by highly skilled dedicated workforce many of whom are long serving and are fully aware of our customer needs and our aim to be the Best of British.
