Olivers Plants known for quality plants grown on their own Nursery in Earls Colne, Essex.
Olivers Plants is run and owned by Oliver Wass who started growing and selling plants early age and has built up the business to be a well-known name in the local area. From a vegetable patch at home to a well-stocked Retail Plant Centre and separate Production Nursery, Olivers Plants has built a reputation for high quality and sensible pricing.
Our Plant Centre
Our Retail Plant Centre has covered sales areas along with a dedicated houseplant room and outdoor displays showcasing a wide range of plants. There is ample parking on-site and a homely Café offering freshly ground coffee, teas, homemade cakes, sandwiches and daily lunch specials.
Our Production Nursery boasts a large glasshouse and outdoor growing beds, allowing our knowledgeable team to propagate and grow a vast range of our own plants to be sold at the Retail Plant Centre.
Our Kitchen Garden
Work on the Kitchen Garden at Olivers Plants started in October 2021 with the aim of supplying our Black Horse Café with seasonal produce.
Now, in addition to supplying the Café, the Kitchen Garden produces a selection of vegetables which are for sale at the Plant Centre.
Grown From Seed
During the Summer of 2017, Olivers Plants secured part funding from The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. This helped us to install specialised and sophisticated LED lighting into our propagation room at our Production Nursery, aiding us in growing more of our own plants from seed to sell at the Retail Plant Centre.
Large Under Cover Area
In early 2018, we were granted funding from The LEADER Project, which helped us build a weatherproof canopy structure at our Plant Retail Centre. This has greatly benefitted our customers and us by providing a sizeable undercover space.
Café & Play Area
In 2020, our Black Horse Café was granted part funding from The LEADER Project for the new building and facilities. This has allowed us to expand the café, giving us more seating both inside and outside, children’s play areas and much needed space for day to day operation.
Stunning Outdoor Display
Also in 2020, Olivers Plants Limited was granted part-funding by the LEADER Project to help with the expansion of our outdoor plant sales area including paved pathways and new display beds with a complete irrigation system. This has allowed us to improve our displays with more space, providing better organisation and making it possible to keep our plants in the best condition.
Our customers have been very impressed!
