SM Garden Sheds web promotional partner Crosby’s Nursery in Timperley, Altrincham is a long-established wholesale supplier of ornamental bedding plants, shrubs and flowers. A growing business since 1939, Crosby’s Nursery supplies thousands upon thousands of ornamental plants to garden centres, local authorities’ parks & gardens departments, landscape gardeners and retail chains throughout the UK and overseas. Unfortunately, because Crosby’s are a wholesale supplier of plants and flowers they are unable to sell directly to the general public.
Much of the work undertaken by Crosby’s Nursery is in contract supplying. Customers let Crosby’s know in advance what bedding plants they will need for the following year. This ensures the customer gets the best possible prices and guarantees full delivery of ornamental plants, flowers, shrubs and seasonals in the quantities they want and at the time that they need them.
Most of Crosby’s ornamental plants and colourful flowers are grown from their own seeds. This has been possible as Crosby’s have developd their own varieties over the years, adapting plants to suit the British climate and producing plants and flowers to suit the customers tastes. Some seeds are still brought in form all over the globe, from some of the best names in the horticultural world including Ball Colegrave of California, Sakata of Japan and the Dutch suppliers Florensis and Syngenta.
Crosby’s Nursery is always open to new ideas and their staff regularly attend seminars hosted by growers and horticulturalists, as well as offering advice and guidance to their own customers on all aspects of cultivating and tending to their crops. Customers old and new are always welcome to visit Crosby’s state of the art nurseries, to talk about their plans and to see the hundreds of varieties of ornament flowers and bedding plants on offer.
