Robs Nursery

The bedding plant season is now in full swing with millions of packs being sold every spring to keen gardener wanting to get a good splash of colour in there garden. B&Q sell over 10 million bedding plants through there stores every spring but if you want the best quality bedding you need to go to a specialist. This week i went off to Robs nursery in Moulton, Northamptonshire Robs is a family run nursery in the centre of the village of Moulton. 
As you come off the road you wind your way down a narrow lane you will go past some houses and in to a farm yard but keep going you are not lost and the greenhouses are straight in front of you.
Rob has been running this nursery for the last 30 years selling just to the public and specializing in bedding plants. You will find it hard to get better quality plants from any where else and at very reasonable price's too.
The first thing that hits you when you walk in is the colour Orange, Reds, Yellows right through to the pastel colours Blues, Pinks etc. Plants are available in small pots, strips right up to big pots with instant fan trained Geraniums and Fushias. 
 But lets not forget the hanging basket's and pots there are loads to chose from already planted up or let Rob plant your own container up for you.
But Robs nursery is not just about Bedding they also grow lots of Monkey puzzles and Wollemi pine from small ones to big ones Rob grows all the Monkey puzzles they sell from seed so all have been carefully tended for many year. 
Robs Nursery was also the first nursery in the UK to collect seed and germinate it of the Wollemi pine seed the videos below to see how Rob did it.
