ONE OF the UK?s leading nurseries in Hereford will be attending this year?s (2016) Glee event at the NEC in Birmingham.

Wyevale Nurseries is exhibiting at the UK?s leading garden and outdoor living tradeshow taking place from Monday, September 12 until Wednesday, September 14.

Adam Dunnett, Sales and Marketing Director at Wyevale Nurseries, explained: ?Glee is the largest horticultural industry exhibition and a must for anyone associated with the industry. We?re delighted to be attending once again this year.

?It will be a chance for retail customers to see our new range of plants up close and talk to us about our large offering from our variety of trees, shrubs, hedging and herbaceous to specimen plants for garden centres.

?We have a stand at the event (NB24) and would like to take the opportunity to say ?hello? to lots of new people as well as meet up with our current and potential clients. We?ll also be giving out free information to anyone interested in finding out about the plants and services we offer.

?Last year we were delighted that our plant Raspberry ?Ruby Beauty? won the Glee New Product Award for Best Plant, Seeds and Bulbs. It was the first ever dwarf, patio raspberry. We hope that one of our new plants this year will also be taking home a Glee New Product Award.?

Wyevale Nurseries is one of the UK?s largest family-run wholesale nurseries. It was established in 1930 by horticulturist and entrepreneur Harry Williamson. The company became what it is today under the leadership and work of his son, Peter, who sadly passed away in 2011.

The family saw the opportunity to sell their product to an emerging retail market, creating one of the first garden centres, closely followed by a chain. In 1987, the retail side needed expanding, and 19 garden centres were sold as 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.
