Growers

We have a nationwide reputation for quality fruit plants and supply specialist fruit growers, PYO farms, farm shops, market gardeners, organic growers, garden centres and nurseries.

We are one of a very few propagators who choose to be inspected and certified by the Plant Health Propagation Scheme (PHPS). This is a voluntary scheme run by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA).

The bush fruits have been grown on from cuttings taken from our PHPS inspected and certified parent stocks and we have carefully managed and inspected them on a very regular basis throughout the growing season.

The raspberry canes and strawberry plants and parent bushes have all been entered into the PHPS Scheme, have been inspected for trueness to type and health on at least two occasions through the growing season, and have passed all the inspections.

Nurseries and Garden Centres please note that in season we can supply smaller grades of plants that are ideal for potting or containerising.

Strawberry Plants

All of our PHPS Elite or 'A' certificate strawberry plants are organically grown.

We are NSA contract growers of PHPS foundation plants, and multiply up our own stocks from these through three generations, utilising our complete isolation and healthy conditions. This ensures that the plants have never been in contact with any disease risks.

Our top quality strawberry plants are supplied as 'fresh-dug' and are mainly available for spring planting (February - May) or alternatively as cold-stored plants (early order required please). Please refer to our Plant Varieties page for further details.

Raspberry Canes

We are well known for our strong, well rooted canes. Our long canes are in particular demand. We are NSA contract growers and grow PHPS super elite canes from which we obtain all our replacement stocks, which are grown here in complete isolation.

We still hand dig our canes to ensure that a strong, well balanced cane is produced. The lifting season starts in November and can continue through until early March (stocks permitting). The canes are despatched nationwide, using a parcel carrier or by pallet service. Please refer to our Plant Varieties page for further details.

Fruit Bushes and Cuttings

Our blackcurrant bushes grown from our own PHPS certified cuttings. We propagate blackcurrant bushes and cuttings for "Ribena" growers and grow all the relevant juicing varieties. We also have the specialist varieties for fresh and PYO markets.

The stocks are grown in a sparsely populated area, at altitude, in some of the healthiest conditions in the UK and we have unique isolation from any commercial fruiting plantations.

We multiply up our stocks from PHPS Foundation plants supplied from SCRI, through 2-3 generations, which gives us control from the earliest possible stage. Our customers tell us that the plants respond rapidly to softer environments and establish quickly. We can supply one year old bushes grown from these stocks, many of which are organically grown, and also hardwood cuttings.
