How it all began
Owned by Alan's parents Mary and Les Bourne, the nursery began in the 50's as a small holding with animals, growing commercial crops of potatoes and pick your own strawberries. After studying at Writtle College and working for Colchester Parks department, Alan's joined the family business in 1968 growing and selling salad crops and bedding plants. Alan and his wife Karin took on the business in 1983 and from here the nursery has developed to support the growing business producing around a million plants a year.Read more history
