Propagation

We are proud to have propagated our own plants on-site in one way, shape or form since the nursery was first established in 1947.

Stock plants are planted on-site and are increasing in both number and diversity.

Our range of shrubs, conifers, grasses and climbers have been produced from cuttings, splits, seeds and layering. We produce as much of our own stock as possible and can tell you exactly where each plant has come from. This is just one of the reasons why our plants are endorsed with the New Forest Marque.

 

Undertaking our own propagation enables us to expand our product line and our work with other growers, nurseries and plants people. This, in turn, allows us to offer a more unusual and diverse range of stock and plants for sale.

At Shallowmead we are dedicated to investing our time and energy into propagation which will continue to grow, expand and diversify.

At the end of 2016 our new hi tec propagation unit was completed.
