Welcome to The Hardy Geranium Nursery!
The nursery was opened in May 2018 and is run by myself, Suzie, with help from my two glamourous assistants Dougal and Dillon.
In 2012 I embarked on a career change into horticulture. While studying to complete my RHS level 2 qualification I interned and volunteered at a prestigious National Trust garden. This experience and the education I received gave me valuable insight to the many different sectors with the horticulture industry. It was at this time I realised my passion for propagation, growing and nurturing plants and how gratifying it is.
In 2014 I went on to work at a well-known web-based nursery and grew for two of the Main Avenue Show Gardens for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The gardens both won gold and one received Best in Show.
I then decided to continue my studies and complete my RHS Level 3 qualification. Soon after, while looking to purchase some hardy geraniums for myself I came across an advert for a nursery that was for sale as a going concern. My husband, with his unfailing sense of faith in my ability, told me to go for it and the rest, as they say, is history. I now have my own nursery specialising in one of my all-time favourite plants, and I get to bring my dogs to work with me.
Last year, 2020, was an exceptionally trying year for all of us. In the year that was to be my third year in business, also considered make or break, Covid-19 hit our country and the world over. The pandemic wreaked havoc everywhere but I am glad to say, thanks to all my wonderful customers, my nursery and business survived. Despite the havoc that the pandemic is still creating along with the trials of Brexit the nursery will be open for business in 2021, and we will be better than ever.
