Anne Kaile and Jenny Hawksley, two members of the Hardy Plant Society, are currently researching Nurseries Past and Present for the Somerset Gardens Trust. They would be very grateful for any help you can give with information, catalogues or other publications regarding any Somerset Nursery. I know some of our members are owners of nurseries, or used to be. Any Nursery, however small, will be included.
The kind of information they require would be the date the nursery opened, the date it closed (where applicable), the type of plants grown, the location of the clientele (whether local, national or international), any famous clients etc.
Anne and Jenny can be contacted as below:
- Anne Kaile Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: 01460 240667
- Jenny Hawksley Email: email@example.com Telephone: 01460 259733
Anne and Jenny would like to thank those who have already responded and look forward to hearing from those who have not yet done so.
Thank you very much for your support for this worthwhile source of information for future generations.
