The plant nursery
As a working nursery the staff care for the growing of plants across the Nursery site. Everyone is welcome to visit the nursery field and our greenhouses to browse amongst our wide variety of seedlings, herbaceous perennials, bulbs, shrubs, fruit and vegetables, cared for by expert staff.
The Turners Nursery team are on hand Monday to Sunday to give individual advice and can assist you with planting ideas, colour inspirations, growing tips and to help you choose plants most suited to the conditions of your property.
Bespoke designs for container gardening
Here at Tuners we specialise in creating the perfect hanging baskets and container planting for your home, business or as a gift. Our container gardening ideas have won us several awards including ‘Top of the Pots’ Gold Award 2014, Poynton Horticultural and agricultural society Gold Medal Award in 2013 & 2014, plus Turners won the Nursery Challenge Cup in 2013 & 2014.
Turners have provided planting advice, containers and plants to councils in the towns and villages of Chorley, Wilmslow and Alderley Edge and have been very proud to take part. The North West in Bloom is the voluntary regional organisation that administers the Britain in Bloom competition, an initiative which aims to spruce up our villages and bring a summer of colour, great planting, community spirit and improvement to our local areas.
Over the course of the year Turners provides workshops on a range of subjects to help you learn new skills and care for your own garden. Some of our most popular workshops include Willow sculpture, Chainsaw safety and Maintenance and Hanging basket workshops. Keep an eye on our facebook page and the news section of the website for further information on up and coming workshops.
Presentations and Talks
The team hosts talks on all areas of gardening, landscaping and planting advice topics. Visiting schools, organisations and homes to help discuss gardening topics, give expert advice and tips, plus bring along some materials to demonstrate how to do all this yourself. You can book an expert demonstration by contacting the nursery, the charge is approximately £50 per hour, dependent on location.
Charity and Community Events
We partake in many charity and community events such as the Wilmslow Scarecrow festival and the MacMillan coffee mornings to help raise money. As a small business in the heart of Wilmslow, Chorley and Alderley Edge we feel the need to promote the surrounding communities and be involved as much as possible. In recent months we have help talks at Wilmslow School about the horticultural industry and raised money for ‘Locks for the Chop’ in conjunction with The Little Princess Trust who makes wigs from hair donations.
