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 completed major renovations to the Nursery and the Farm Shop with re-covered polytunnels, including one which is accessible to customers for browsing and shelter. We also have a large parking area, a Farm Shop building with plenty of space for fruit & veg, jams & preserves, biscuits & snacks and a chiller for milk, cream, cheeses, salad items and cold drinks. We have plenty of benches, beds & avenues for displaying a large and quite unique 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 have done to and for the site and the business.
We plan over time to increase the number and range of plants we grow ourselves to minimise "produce miles" and maximise plant health. We have amazing staff who have great knowledge and understanding of the Nursery & Farm Shop and strive to provide friendly and helpful service.
We thank our customers for continuing to support us during the renovations of last year and the trials & tribulations of 2020 so far and we look forward to seeing old friends & new at the nursery as things gradually improve over the year.
Come see us soon.
Derek, Helen and the whole team at Greensleeves
