This family run business which has been established for over 75 years has eight greenhouses on their two acre site where they grow many of the plants they sell. From small beginnings, growing vegetable plants and roses during the war years, the business has now developed into a large retail nursery. The nursery is now in its third generation celebrating its 75th year in 2014 owned and run by Brian Collyer and his daughter Jenny.
Over the years the nursery has relocated, expanded and developed to become one of the leading and most loved nurseries in Derbyshire. It is known for its friendly and personal customer service and comes highly recommended by other gardeners.
The nursery is renowned for its focus on quality plants & shrubs, a highlight of which is their extensive range of Acers. They created a Japanese Maple House to make it easy for customers to choose from over a hundred available varieties – a great addition for any size of garden. Another speciality is their collection of climbers, which include over 120 varieties of Clematis, a wide range of Jasmines, Honeysuckles (Loniceras), Wisterias, Vines and Ivys (Hederas). Trees are another speciality including a large selection of apple trees – both dessert and cookers – on a range of rootstock, plus cherries, plums, greengage and trained fruit trees.
Collyers is a great all-round nursery offering a high quality of plants at very favourable prices, and always with a friendly welcome to visitors – what more could a gardener wish for?
