Breaking new ground at Allensmore Nurseries
Work has started on the development of a further 9 acres of outdoor production at Herefordshire-based Allensmore Nurseries’ Madley site.

This latest development is in response to current and anticipated increased demand for the company’s expanding range of high quality perennials.

Commenting on their latest investment, Allensmore MD, Mark Taylor, said: “We have seen significant demand increases from our customers in recent months due to our expanding ranges and also in no small part to their concerns over the uncertainty of good quality, reliable, cost-effective plant supplies arising out of the Brexit outcomes, and the weakened pound which is already making imports more expensive. This is resulting in high demand for UK-grown, high quality alternatives to EU-sourced plants and this has given us confidence to accelerate our planned production investment programme.

"Our 40 acre Madley site currently comprises outdoor beds which incorporate the very latest under-bed irrigation systems, fed by our own 5 million gallon reservoir and water recycling and filtration facilities, together with 3 acres of new glasshouse and 2 acres of new polytunnel production.

"The addition of a further 9 acres of outdoor perennial production capacity will enable us to meet current and anticipated demand for the immediate future.

"We are very positive and excited about the future prospects for UK garden plant production and Allensmore have an on-going expansion plan to ensure we are ready and well-equipped to meet this demand for our plant ranges.”
