Baginton Nurseries - A Growing Success
Baginton Nurseries was established in 1981 as a husband and wife partnership and developed as a wholesale bedding, plant nursery on a 6-acre site, Supplying mainly boxed bedding, cut flowers , pot plants, Hanging Baskets and Planted Containers to local shops, markets and garden centres.

Many successful contracts have been set up supplying Local Authorities and Landscape Contractors with High Quality Bedding Plants, Hanging Baskets and Planted Containers and today 45 per cent of the nursery's production is contract grown.
The British Ornamental Plant Producers set up an Accreditation scheme in 1996 to establish a quality standard for wholesale bedding plant, hanging basket and Planted container production, and Baginton Nurseries were among the first producers in the U.K. to gain Accreditation in February 1997.
