Olivers Plants is run and owned by Oliver Wass who started growing and selling plants from an early age and has built up the business to be a well-known name in the local area. From a vegetable patch at home, to well-stocked Retail Plant Centre and seperate Production Nursery, Olivers Plants has built a reputation for high quality and sensible pricing.
Our Retail Plant Centre has covered sales areas along with a dedicated houseplant room and outdoor displays show casing a wide range of plants. There is ample parking on site and a homely Café offering freshly ground coffee, teas, homemade cakes, sandwiches and daily lunch specials. Click here to read more.
The Production Nursery boasts a large 16,000sq ft glasshouse and outdoor growing beds, allowing our knowledgeable team to propagate and grow a huge range of our own plants to be sold at the Retail Plant Centre.
During Summer 2017, Olivers Plants secured part funding from The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. This helped us to install specialised and sophisticated LED lighting into our propagation room at our Production Nursery, aiding us in growing more of our own plants from seed to sell at the Retail Plant Centre.
In early 2018, we were granted funding from The LEADER Project which has helped us to build a weather proof canopy structure at our Plant Retail Centre. This has benefitted us and our customers hugely by providing a large under cover space.
In 2020, our Black Horse Cafe was granted part funding from The LEADER Project for the new building and facilities. This has allowed us to expand the café, giving us more seating area both inside and outside, childrens play areas and much needed space for day to day operation.
Also in 2020, Olivers Plants Limited was granted part funding The LEADER Project to help with the expansion of our outdoor plant sales area including paved pathways and new display beds with a complete irrigation system. This has allowed us to improve our displays with more space providing better organisation plus making it possible to keep our plants in the very best condition. Our customers have been very impressed!
