Nurseries & Artisans 2024:
See which fairs each nursery is attending:
Our nursery, on the banks of the River Trent, near Sherwood Forest, and all of our customer services, are run by Ed.
Ed Cook is the third generation of Nurserymen in the family, but the passion for native wildflowers and restoring native habitat started 20 years ago. He graduated as a Master in Biochemistry (Oxford) and had a 20 -year career in the police. Pursuing his hobby he created numerous wildflower habitats during that time, and now we have come together as a family to start a business doing what we love, instead of a hobby fitted around work! As a family, we've experimented (in different parts of the country) with sowing wildflower habitats and meadows; mostly unsuccessfully. We then starting trying planting, but like most people started with cheap mini-plugs and didn't get the look we intended! It was our other interest in growing native trees and shrubs, that led to the idea of growing perennial wildflowers to a much bigger size for sale, using root-trainers (commonly used for shrubs).
