The Iddon family name has been synonymous with growing, breeding and showing rare hardy herbaceous cottage garden plants for three generations from their nurseries in West Lancashire. Working with the public through open gardens, access to the working nursery and showing throughout the UK at RHS Flower Shows for over fifty years.
In 2018 Graeme Iddon teamed up with his son Daniel to join the climate fight back after purchasing a 40acre woodland and converting the nursery to growing cell based conifer and native broadleaf tree saplings for English and Welsh woodlands. We are conscientious of tree miles being more than just the carbon required to process timber under active management to the end customer but recognise our part from seed collection to planting. The nursery is located in West Lancashire, which is ideally placed to serve England and Wales without excessive costs and carbon consumption delivering to our customers and partners.
The philosophy and emphasis is not just growing quality plants to exacting standards (FRM and UKISG assured) but doing it to reduce carbon and plastic use in the growing, transport and planting process. We are currently the only UK nursery to utilise the Ellepot paper growing cells with our own blend growing medium to minimise natural resources and peat use. We germinate and propagate our trees under glass and grow on outside without the use of plastic polytunnels.
