A scrupulous selection process ensures the plants, particularly the grow your own fruit and vegetables; are of high quality, before they make it into the garden centre.
Nearly every fruit and vegetable plant, bush or tree is grown in nursery and garden centre owner, Graham’s garden or orchard before the decision is made to grow it in the nursery in bigger numbers, for subsequent sale in the garden centre.
A plant’s suitability to local conditions, the way it grows, its resistance to pests and disease and of course its taste are all closely examined and assessed by Graham before it is selected as ‘meeting the grade’, and a chosen variety for growing in the nursery.
Does it have the ‘X factor’?
If it doesn’t meet Graham’s exacting standards, and throw something special or unusual into the mix, it doesn’t make the cut; it isn’t introduced into the nursery, into the garden centre - or into your garden!
