25th Anniversary of
2017 marks the 25th anniversary of
Hoecroft Plants at Severals Grange. It is hard to believe that 25 years
ago the present nursery site was just a bare field with nothing except
brambles and nettles to look at.
Of course it was a challenge but a very enjoyable one and that feeling has never diminished over the 25 years.
The gardens have really matured beautifully and given both myself and my team great pleasure but more importantly they have inspired many of our customers and even changed some peoples minds about grasses!
This of course opens the door for
other opportunities and the time spent watering and weeding pots of
plants can be transferred to other passions and projects.
All these differing parts of the garden have served to inspire customers and help them solve problems in their own gardens.
In later years we have provided
designs and plans for many customers. Using the garden and its plants as
an example of what can be created in larger and smaller forms. This is
an area we relish and will continue to develop in the future.

Hoecroft was originally owned by a family friend,Nigel Taylor a leading authority on ornamental grasses in the country. The nursery originally started out in Norfolk and then Nigel moved to the west country where he later made the decision to sell up. It was Mums idea to take it over and Severals was the ideal location.
The early years were very much focused on a mail order service but as
the nursery grew in both size and reputation, more and more customers
wanted to visit.
It was obvious from the start that introducing grasses into the garden was for some people going to be a strange thing to do. So it became clear that developing the gardens around the nursery to demonstrate how this could be done was key to the future of the nursery.
In 2012 to celebrate twenty
years of the nursery here at Severals we developed a new area beyond the
shelter belt trees. The planting in this area was of grasses and
perennials only and in much bigger swathes.
