Palmstead Nurseries Celebrates 50 Years of Growing

Palmstead Nurseries, trade and retail nursery in Ashford, is celebrating 50 years in the business of ‘growing’. It is stepping up propagation of its own plants from the current two-thirds of stock, in order to address issues over disease and biosecurity.

Intent on providing healthy perennials, evergreens, shrubs, trees and specimen plants to the landscaping industry, Palmstead also has a retail ‘cash and carry’ outlet too. What’s more, this nursery prides itself on educating those involved in the industry, with the annual Soft Landscaping Workshop having become a high spot for many garden designers, landscapers and associated trades.

This year’s seminar takes place on 23rd January and will be held at the Ashford International Hotel. The topic is The Green Connection, Empowerment through Collaboration, and speakers include esteemed landscape architect John Wyer and award-winning garden designer Andrew Wilson.
