we prepare the plants while you relax – benefits of
pre-growing to you
Plants create the first impression on your
project and with adequate notice we can prepare all the plants you need to the
specifications you require. You can relax in the knowledge that the
plants side of your project has been taken care of at the planning stage.
We’ll also grow additional replacement stock to cover any on site damage or
attrition and ensure that your project runs smoothly.
By securing plants in advance you will save
considerable time and stress when planting time comes and will not have to
struggle with availability of plant material nor travelling from nursery to
nursery collecting plants.
You’ll also secure a negotiated price on all plants
so your budget is addressed well in advance and you avoid the risk of
unpredicted price rises.
A pre-grow contract often represents the best value
for money as all plants are sourced from the one supplier.
In addition, your plants will be true to type, the
quantities required are available with consistent plant size, no substitutes
have been used and plants will have been grown in the correct sizes to provide
the intended initial impact.

With adequate notice we can fulfill large
scale orders particularly suited to landscape developments. We are able to draw on our specialist
resources and utilise our 2 nursery locations to compartmentalise the project
and ensure that each plant type is grown in its optimum location. All stock is centralised prior to dispatch giving
plants time to acclimatise.

and save yourself time, money, stress and resources shopping around.
what information do we need?
provide a project estimate and to anticipate any potential issues early please
- species list
- container size required
- project schedule
- time frame plants are needed
- provenance if applicable
growing time frames
frames will vary according to the time of year, species type, container size
required, germination time and availability of seed. As a general rule, lead time can vary from 10
weeks to 9 months. Each pre-growing contract is handled individually.
we’ve discussed your project requirements we can more accurately assess lead
times. The earlier we know, the sooner you’lll know and the more likely we will
be able to meet your needs. .
best-laid plans often go astray so the terms of our contract also deal with
delays and maintenance. We will always do our best to meet your needs
throughout the duration of the project and try to be as flexible and friendly
as possible. Upon signing a contract with us a 10% deposit is requested.
can a project be pre-grown in stages?
in stages is very common on large projects and we can factor timed stages into
our production schedule, delivering the product you need when you need it. The
more we know about the project and the timeframes for planting, the better - we
may be able to help you more than you know.
what size plants can you grow?
container sizes vary depending on the nature of the project. To cater for this we grow plants in numerous
sizes including cells (128 – 200 seedlings per trays); hiko tubes (trays of 40
tube stock); 140mm pots; 200mm pots; 1m long wetland strips; advanced trees in
200mm pots and spring rings, 45L and 100L.
Other sizes can be grown upon request.

arrangement or to discuss your project options please contact
