High-quality stock from Johnsons spruces up award-winning developments


One of the UK’s leading commercial nurseries, Johnsons of Whixley, has supplied over £120,000 plants for two award-winning projects.


The North Yorkshire-based nursery teamed up with professional landscapers, Plant Style Ltd, to offer its first-class products to the Great Kneighton, Trumpington, Cambridge development and Tadpole Garden Village in Swindon, Wiltshire.


The Cambridge development, by Countryside Properties, also saw the property firm win a gold award in the ‘Best Public Realm’ category at the prestigious WhatHouse? Awards 2018.


It includes 120 acres of country parkland, lakes and green spaces as well as a bird reserve, woodlands, allotments and over 14,000 new trees which were planted in the community.


Plant Style Ltd was contracted to complete the landscaping which saw Johnsons supply £30,000 worth of plants such as 9,000 shrubs – including over 1,000 10L Buxus sempervirens and over 300 Skimmia Rubella 5L.


Meanwhile, Tadpole Garden Village, by Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects, was awarded a silver in the ‘Best Public Realm’ category at the WhatHouse? Awards 2018.


Its grounds include a mature woodland, ponds, hedgerows and a 100-acre park which is committed to encouraging wildlife.


Plant Style Ltd carried out the landscaping for this project too, which included over £90,000 of Johnsons’ plants throughout 2015 to 2018. Varieties included nearly 150 trees over 20-25 girth size, 80 large mixed native hedging units and over 12,000 shrubs and grasses.


Colin McDowell, Plant Style Ltd’s managing director, said: “Working with Johnsons to deliver these projects was an easy choice as they have proven to be one of the most reliable suppliers. The awards are great recognition for all involved and we congratulate Countryside Properties and Crest Nicholson on their success.”


Ellie Richardson, marketing co-ordinator for Johnsons of Whixley, added: “We are extremely proud to be associated with not only Plant Style Ltd, but the prestigious WhatHouse? Awards 2018. A huge congratulations must go to both developers and Plant Style Ltd who carried out the ground works.”


Johnsons of Whixley, one of the largest commercial nurseries in the UK, is based between York and Harrogate and is a trusted supplier of trees and plants to the amenity sector.
