The Hereford-based nursery said it had the best May ever in its recorded trading history, with sales up by 14% for the month.

Wyevale Nurseries, which supplies into garden centres across the UK, also reported year-on-year (2017-18) growth of 17% in shrub sales and 19% in herbaceous and 60% in the sales of ferns.

Sales & marketing director Adam Dunnett explained: “After a very challenging start to the year, with sales affected by the long winter and adverse weather conditions, we will be in a positive situation year-on-year by the end of June.

“We revamped and increased our fern range last year, due to seeing a surge of interest for the plant, and this has paid off. We found this year that there has been a demand in both retail and amenity/garden design markets, which has definitely helped increase our sales. The late spring also meant we got several months’ sales for ferns in one month.

“Early June sales have continued at record levels and it looks set to be another record breaking month. This is fantastic news and the sunny weather is certainly helping.”

The product selection available from Wyevale Nurseries is envied across the industry and the talented team regularly introduces new, award-winning plant varieties.
