The Nursery celebrated its 50th year in business in 2014 and what a
year it was. Not only was it a wonderful trading year, but we also celebrated the opening of "Blossoms" our own
unique Coffee Shop.
The Nursery was founded by Audrey
and Dennis Flitton in 1964. The site, when they arrived was extremely run down, but they soon turned things around to form
a productive market garden and plant area.
Over the past 50 odd years the site has evolved to its place today, with a shop that caters for the discerning
gardener and also a haven for Perennial lovers. As in years past the majority of the stock is grown on site.
Sadly Dennis passed away in 1996. Audrey and her two daughters Diana and Celia ran the Nursery for
over 20 years during which time they developed a range of master classes for creating Hanging Baskets and other workshops.
They were recognized for their skills in 2005 when they won a Gold Medal at The Hampton Court Flower Show for their
baskets and tubs. The following year they entered a category out of their skill set and came home with a Silver Medal for
In 2011 Celia departed for pastures new and at the same time Audrey decided to take semi retirement. The
Nursery today is run by Diana, and her husband Jim (Flower) works with her. The business still strives to be the best in its
The sales area is still mainly devoted to their speciality in Perennials along with Bedding Plants and
Shrubs. However over time is has been developed, and, today is also noted for its high quality Vegetable Plants.
In July of 2014 their dreams of opening a Coffee Shop were finally realised. "Blossoms" is a quiet
oasis where you can come and enjoy some quality food and drinks amongst the flowers.
As before the Nursery is geared to their business aims, but always with a touch of fun. The family have
always kept their sights on the highest level of professionalism and this is shown by the number of clients they have, not
only for the classes but the quantity of replants for the summer and Autumn.
The Nursery is run by a small but dedicated team, who will happily help you with your horticultural needs.
We look forward to seeing you and we hope that you enjoy your visit.
