A Little About Us
Greensleeves Nursery has been in Odcombe for many years, originally a wholesale nursery, founded by David and Valerie Gray. The Grays were well known in the area and Mr Gray was always on hand with knowledge and advice on plants and flowers. Sadly, Mr Gray passed away in early 2018 and Mrs Gray was unable to continue the business.
As neighbours and customers of the Nursery & Farm Shop we felt it should continue to serve the local community and we were able to acquire the business from Mrs Gray in November 2018. We have been carrying out major renovations to the Nursery and the Farm Shop and have re-covered polytunnels, added more, including one which is accessible to customers for browsing and shelter. We also have a much larger parking area, a new Farm Shop building with more space for fruit & veg, a chiller for dairy produce, salad items, cold drinks and a freezer for ice cream. We have new benches for plant display and increased areas for a much larger range of plants, shrubs and trees. Our aim has been to retain the character and atmosphere of Greensleeves past but to improve and make it more accessible and productive in the present and future - our customers kindly tell us all the time how much they are enjoying all the things we are doing to and for the site and the business.
We plan over time to grow as much of the produce for the Farm Shop as possible to minimise "food miles" and maximise freshness. We have amazing staff who have great knowledge and understanding of the Nursery & Farm Shop and continue to provide friendly and helpful service.
We thank our customers for continuing to support us during the renovations and we hope that future improvements both big and small will continue to delight!
Come see us soon.
