New beginnings at Ribblesdale Nurseries

After taking over the garden centre on Newsham Hall Lane, Woodplumpton in September, Ann and her team have been busy reorganising both inside and out.

The inside had been reorganised to incorporate a gift and Christmas shop, something new for the business and a welcome addition to the village amenities.

The outside is undergoing a major overhaul and judging by the reaction of customers to the improvements, so far so good. The bird watching hide will remain with an improved wilderness garden, which the team hopes both the wildlife and customers will appreciate.

John, who has worked at Ribblesdale for over 30 years has remained with the business and has been joined by the new manager, James Whalley. James has worked in horticulture for over 15 years and undertook his work experience from Myerscough College at Ribblesdale Nurseries. He spent most of his childhood growing up opposite and running around Jane Lane Nursery, which is probably where his love for plants was nurtured, so it’s good to see the baton has been passed to the next generation.

Ann and Pat oversee the interior, adding new products weekly. Pat, a qualified florist, has over 35 years’ experience in Garden Centres and floristry. Pat is currently busy making fresh Christmas grave pots, grave and door wreaths, some fantastic outdoor arrangements and when she has a moment, you’ll find her busy making a silk flower arrangement.
Ann’s vision is to keep the family friendly feeling while offering a greater range of products and services, so please call in and have a look for yourself. Plus, there’s 10% off everything if you call in before 23rd December 2020, with the attached advert..
