Founded in 1989 by Andrew & Angela Halksworth to meet a growing demand for larger plants, Tendercare is now Britain’s leading horticultural resource centre. Its nursery, covering more than 18 acres, is based at Denham, Uxbridge, where it specialises in providing mature and specimen trees and shrubs, all in larger than normal size, and a full consultancy, design and planting service. The nursery is located just on the outskirts of London and very accessible to the major road networks and with their fleet of vehicles delivery of any size of tree is not a problem.
There are more than 100,000 mature and specimen trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants, from show quality perennials to 60-year-old yews and majestic conifers. The range of plants is extensive from maples, climbers, bamboos, hedging, architectural plants and fruit trees, pleached trees, cloud trees, Mediterranean and plant hunter exotics. Its unrivalled range of mature trees and plants make it the first choice of many leading garden designers and landscape architects, and many of the UK’s finest public and private gardens are regular clients. Tendercare also supplies the majority of television gardening programmes.
Its accolades include Nursery Stock Grower of the Year Millennium Award, and Hampton Court Flower Show award winner, while it has provided stock for numerous gold medal winners at the Chelsea Flower Show, innumerable awards for their projects including horticultural icons such as the Living Wall at the Oval.
The nursery and the professional landscaping service has become one of the best names in horticulture for large specimen trees, shrubs and specimen plants, with plants starting at 10 litres up to 1000 litres, just think BIG!
