Angela ensures that everything on the nursery runs smoothly, managing the team of customer service and despatch coordinators and generally making sure that you have all the information that you need before, during and after your purchases.   Her organisational skills make all the cogs turn, as and when they should.  We understand that it isn’t always easy buying trees and plants without seeing them first but Angela and the team around her do everything possible to make sure that you get what you want. 

Borja Jerez Marin Despatch Manager

Every tree, plant, edging shrub and pot that is ordered is picked and checked by Borja and his team and each truck or van is loaded to ensure that the plants arrive in the best possible condition to you.  Borja trained in horticulture in Spain and during his university degree carried out his placement year with Caragh Nurseries before returning to his home country to graduate. He returned once he secured his degree and has been with us here ever since, working his way up to his current role.  

Sean Murray Field Production Manager

Sean runs our field production nursery. Everything from planting and pruning to staking then lifting again is done by Sean and his team. During Rootballed season, from November to March is Sean’s busiest time, lifting bare-root and rootballed trees and hedging from our 50+ acres of fields, currently under full time production.  Sowing of new crops is carried out in September and then again in March, always making sure we have the right stocks for future years and the nursery keeps growing. 

Holly Clarke Containerised Production Manager

Holly looks after all our containerised crops which includes the trees, hedging and potted stocks throughout the nursery.  Her year starts with potting up our newly produced plants and shrubs and ends with potting up of the trees lifted from our fields to enable trees to be sold in containers all year round.  This is no small feat as some of the more popular plants would be produced in multiples of  thousands and each one has to minded and looked after to ensure that what you order on our website or over the phone is in tip-top condition.
