<strong>Our</strong> History
Meet Alison

Meet Alison

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.

After a gap of a few years doing my own, I have decided to return to Blooming Baskets, because they are great value for money, the service is great and only 1 time in the past few years have mine ever come close to theirs for quality – which is why we are going back! I am giving my green fingers a rest and trusting Alison and her team to do my beautiful building proud.
