Company History

The large glasshouse at Swarkestone Nursery was erected in 1986 - it's purpose to grow vegetable plants which were then planted out in 300 acres of fertile River Trent floodplain land at Melbourne, Swarkestone and Weston-On-Trent.

Throughout the 20th century several generations of Jackson Family originally at King's Newton nr Melbourne, grew vegetables and fruit.

In the 1970's the current generation - brother and sister, John and Helen studied at Pershore College of Horticulture where they developed an interest in ornamental plants.

Originally vegetables were supplied locally to wholesale markets - Derby, Nottingham and Leicester. This developed to regular deliveries between Covent Garden and Leeds and then to supermarkets such as Morrisons.

We started growing and selling bedding plants and trees as a sideline in the 1980's commercial vegetable production stopped in 1999 and Swarkestone Nursery opened all year round from 2000.
