We have been supplying soft fruit plants to gardeners by mail order since 1990 and we have built a strong reputation for top quality plants and service.
We no longer supply direct, but we can provide you with a list of the businesses we supply. Please send us an email.
We are one of a very few propagators who choose to be inspected and certified by the Fruit Propagation Certification Scheme (FPCS). 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 FPCS inspected and certified parent stocks and we have carefully managed and inspected them on a regular basis throughout the growing season.
The raspberry canes and strawberry plants and parent bushes have all been entered into the FPCS 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.
Our growing year
The plants we sell are all grown on our farm and we employ a local workforce throughout the year. There is planting in the spring, hoeing and weeding in the summer, and then lifting, sorting, grading and packing throughout the winter and into the spring. Meanwhile, the farm office keeps two people busy throughout the winter months, keeping track of orders and dealing with customers, and then updating the website and leaflets and catching up with the paperwork through the summer.
The diagram below shows what happens throughout the year.
We update this page when we come across something we think you may find interesting. Remember, you can also find us on Facebook.
