Alison started Blooming Baskets in 1990 after developing a purpose built site for growing plants on the farm.
Having studied ‘Commercial Horticulture’ at the Writtle Agriculture College in Essex and further studies at the Royal Horticultural Association gardens in Wisley, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience.
With a passion for creating the best flower displays for your business, Alison is always on hand to give advice to ensure you get the best from your baskets, just get in touch.
I love flowers! Their beauty and scent, before I even went to primary school, I’d watch my Nan choose a rose to bring inside and saw the pleasure it gave her!
Grandma was also gardening mad, planting bulbs (or digging them up!); alternating alyssum and lobelia along the borders. In very early spring we would carefully make webs with black cotton above the crocus to stop bluetits pecking and spoiling their blooms. Magical peonies sprouted, our garden was brimming with colour.
Our team, amalgamated over the years, are very experienced and keen to make your premises splendid! We spend hours sowing seeds. Then after very careful plant selection, planting baskets and watering! Getting your orders together for loading and of course delivering them, they take a couple of days to settle after being delivered
We have probably swapped your baskets at sometime or other, after being here for 20 years we remember most pubs, and what goes where! We are very experienced at installing water systems and fitting brackets
Purpose built flower farm
Situated in the Tamar Valley the nursery benefits from the warm river running between Devon and Cornwall. We just add a polytunnel or ‘pod’ a year giving us space to let the plants flourish under protection.
I just wanted to tell you that the baskets are absolutely the best we have ever had. I might even get some winter baskets from you.
Lorraine Hainsworth, BradninchMORE TESTIMONIALS
Many thanks, superb winter baskets.
Steve & Julie Hurdman
I have been meaning to send an email to you for a while and I’m sorry that this is so late. It is just to say how fantastic the baskets look at the front of the school – a lovely welcome for children and staff alike. They look stunning.
The hanging baskets have been stunning. They did arrive looking very battered but have picked up beautifully.
I’m going to try your exchange service for winter baskets
Angela Harper, Pale Hall Hotel
Ali provides a superb first class service from order to delivery at very competitive prices. We have had people from the far a wide drive by to view her award winning floral displays and I have already placed my winter order and would recommend her business to one and all – you will not be disappointed.
