History of Boningale
There has long been a nursery on the site of the Boningale headquarters.
It was originally home to Bakers nursery, which survived two world wars, won several awards and prided itself as one of the main employers in the area.
Bakers was renowned for its production and breeding of delphiniums and Russell lupins and the nursery became quite a tourist attraction during the spring and summer months when it was a riot of colour.
The nursery was taken over by Mike and Pat Edwards in the 1970s who changed the name to Boningale Nurseries.
The Edwards quickly developed the site into one of the UK’s leading commercial nurseries, developing a diverse range of home-grown produce for the rapidly developing market and expanding production into newly constructed container units.
Now under the chairmanship of Tim Edwards, the business continues to expand and diversify.
It is now one of the largest nurseries in the UK to supply the landscaping industry.
The company’s forward-thinking ethos has allowed it to stay ahead of landscape fashions and trends, and with award winning ventures such as the Green roofing project we hope the success will continue long into the future.
