WYEVALE Nurseries has announced it is from this month (September, 2014) onwards able to offer trees and hedging to its customers all year round.
People can purchase field and container grown trees and hedging from the company, which is based in Hereford and is one of the UK?s leading nurseries, whenever they require them.
Adam Dunnett, Sales and Marketing Director, explained: ?Earlier this year we re-organised from three companies into one to offer customers a ?one-stop-shop?. This has meant we have also been able to make improvements for our customers. One of these improvements has been that we can now provide trees and hedging all year round.
?We have always offered a very comprehensive range of bare root hedging transplants from November to April and are one of the market leaders in this sector. However, we found customers were increasingly asking for pot grown hedging throughout the summer, so we took the decision to grow a range of three and five litre container grown plants.
?Our aim is to produce the highest quality available as customers want a hedge that establishes quickly and successfully so starting with a top quality plant is fundamental to this.
?Our hedging range is primarily aimed at the amenity sector, but with the move towards native varieties and planting for wildlife we have seen a significant increase in requests for potted hedging from our retail customers. As a result of this we are looking to double production next year to meet customer demand.?
Wyevale Nurseries? field and container grown trees are grown on more than 350 acres and there are more than 70 varieties to choose from.
Rootball and bare rooted trees are available from November until April. This is then complimented by its container grown range, which starts at 15 litres and goes up to 300 litres.
Per year Wyevale Nurseries grows approximately 8,500 container grown trees and more than 125,000 field grown trees with girths ranging from six centimetres (cm) up to 25cm.
Adam added: ?We have also developed a range of tree varieties, which aren?t widely grown but are suitable for our amenity customers? needs.
?For example, the Acer Platanoides ?Columnare? is well-suited for commercial landscape planting as it is vigorous, but also narrow and more upright. The Sorbus ?Blackberry? is a strong grower and a tough, drought resistant tree, which is ideal for planting in difficult conditions.
?For a list of all the trees in the range, please email [email protected].?
Wyevale Nurseries is planning to launch its first full amenity catalogue, which will include information and prices on all of the plants it can supply, at the end of September. People will be able to request a catalogue by emailing the address above.
Wyevale Nurseries is one of the largest family-run wholesale nurseries in the UK. It was established in 1928 by Harry Williamson, a horticulturist and entrepreneur. It became the company it is today under the leadership of his son, Peter, who sadly passed away in 2011.
The Williamsons? saw the opportunity to sell their product to an undeveloped retail market, creating one of the first garden centres, followed by a chain. In 1987, the retail side needed to expand and the 19 garden centres were sold as a PLC.
The family then turned its focus to Wyevale Nurseries Ltd. It continues to be a family-run business with ownership and joint chairmanship currently being held by the third generation, Heather and Simeon Williamson, with plans for the fourth generation to takeover in the future.
Wyevale Nurseries has a significant product range and is regularly introducing new plants. It offers a large variety of trees, shrubs, hedging, herbaceous and specimen plants to garden centres, landscape contractors, local authorities, foresters and landowners.
