Wyevale Nurseries has? announced that its landscape/amenity sales were up 20% year-on-year from July 2017 to the end of December 2017.

Wyevale Nurseries? sales have been driven by a number of factors and one being the continued growth in a number of key sectors including housing, education, leisure and forestry.

Adam Dunnett, Sales and Marketing Director at Wyevale Nurseries in Hereford, said: ?We?re delighted with our recent sales figures ? it?s a huge increase on last year. Our retail sales also saw a 3% year-on-year increase from July 2017 to the end of December 2017. It?s great news for the industry as a whole.

?A number of our key accounts have increased their turnover with us significantly and are taking a wider range of products too from trees and transplants to container shrubs and herbaceous plants.

?Biosecurity and ensuring that plant stock is coming from a known source without the danger of importing pests or diseases seems to be very much the focus of our customers both on the retail side and increasingly on the landscape side.?

Wyevale Nurseries is investing in its own propagation unit to supply ?UK sown and UK grown? trees and plants to counter the pressure of Brexit and biosecurity issues. It will be a controlled and closed supply chain loop with traceability of all stock.

Adam added: ?We have invested heavily in improving efficiencies of production and distribution. New product development, better marketing, reducing wastage and replacing inefficient production with new products has been our focus.?

The product selection available from Wyevale Nurseries is enviable across the industry and the talented team regularly introduces new, award-winning plant varieties.

Its main business is to supply garden centres, landscape contractors, local authorities, foresters and landowners with a comprehensive array of trees, shrubs, hedging, herbaceous and specimen plants.
