Hi everyone, in my last blog, I mentioned that I had visited my favourite nursery, to get some plants for a memorial garden to my late wife, I’ve just been looking online for some more plants, and came across this, it’s a review of the Notcutts garden centre which backs onto it, but the people doing the review accidentally came upon Mockeridge’s nursery, when they took a wrong turn, so after they had done their review, they decided to do another one, here is the link for the review, which at the end will take you to the next review, [although they mention it quite a lot in this one].
If you have a look at this, you will understand why it’s my favourite nursery. Derek.

Thanks Karen, both places are on land which used to be known as Aston Moss, and there were loads of nurseries on there, most of which sold out when they wanted to put part of the M60 through it.
Hi Sue, yes it's a pity there aren't more of these independents around, I think the big garden centres have proliferated because the majority of their customers don't really know a lot about gardening, and go to them as part of a day out, and plants come secondary,[even to the proprietors ].
Hi Eirlys, it certainly is worth a visit, several times a year, Derek.

Hi Derek ..
Lovely to read of the independent nurseries doing well.

Hi Tt, yes , it's a pity there aren't more of them, but people seem to prefer the profit merchants, rather than go for quality at a lower price, Derek.
