Welcome to the
Fir Trees Pelargonium Nursery
We are a family run business specializing in pelargoniums (nickname-
The nursery was started in 1992 and since then we have attended all the most prestigious flower shows in the country mainly those run by The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), including Chelsea where we won 7 gold medals in 10 years. We have won well over 100 gold medals and achieved Best in Show awards at BBC Gardeners World Live (3 times), Hampton Court Palace flower show, Tatton Park flower show, Gardening Scotland, Holker Hall and The Amateur Gardening Spring flower show.
We are open at the nursery for you to browse at your leisure fom 10am to 4pm daily
in the summer (April to July) or 10am to 3.30pm Mon -
Mail order is our speciality we are known throughout to UK for sending larger plants by overnight carrier(click here for examples) , all details are on this website.
2013 was a great year for Pelargoniums, it was dry and very sunny for most of the summer and lasted right into late autumn. Here at the nursery we had a very successful year at the flower shows being awarded Best In Show in the floral marquee at Hampton Court and receiving the prestigious Tudor Rose Award. This is the second time we have had this award the first time was 15 years ago!
The icing on the cake in 2013 was being awarded two very special annual awards by the Royal Horticultural Society. The first one was the Anthony Huxley Award given by the Tender Ornamental Plant Committee for the best display of tender plants shown to the committee in the year. This is the third time we have received this award. The second award was the Lawrence Medal for the best display shown to the RHS during the year, this is a very special honour for us to receive this medal as never before has a Pelargonium nursery won the award. Both awards were awarded for our display at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
We will be attending all the major flower shows again in 2014 and are hoping for another great year and lovely warm sunny weather.
We are sending more and more plants to European countries and would like to thank all our E.U. customers for their support in 2013 and hope it continues in 2014. And of course we would like to thank all our British customers be they mail order or flower show or nursery visitors we really appreciate your kind comments and custom.
As usual in 2014 we have 2 RHS events, one in May and one in August, so why not join me in an afternoon of pure pelargonium indulgence and homemade cakes of course!
Pay us a visit at the nursery when we have our event days and get tips and information on growing your plants. Myself, Ele, Val, Cath, Kirsty and Eileen will be on hand to help and answer your questions, or visit us in the spring when we have our own garden open for the yellow book (National Garden Scheme).
Looking forward to speaking to you in 2014
Happy Growing from
Mark and Helen
and the Fir Trees Team.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their support over the years as this is our last year of trading as Fir Trees Pelargonium Nursery. In August the nursery will close down and be dismantled. There are several reasons for our decision, which has been very difficult. Firstly Mark has a new job, he is now the Transport Manager at the company he was driving for through the winter months. His new job is quite full on and needs to be full time so taking time off to do the shows is quite awkward. Also the new job means that we no longer need to rely on the nursery for our income.
Another major reason for closing is that the greenhouses are well over 40 years old now as they were over 20 years old when we bought them and we have had the nursery for 22 years. As you can imagine they are becoming rather fragile and in constant need of repair, another job for Mark!! And what with rising heating costs, show expenses constantly going up and our brilliant team of ladies all getting older we have decided to call it a day and go out on a high with our special awards from the RHS.
Here’s to a great summer and show season.
A BIG THANK YOU AND FAREWELL FROM
