Plant supply to Retirement Village in Cheshire

Plant supply to Retirement Village in Cheshire

We have recently supplied a range of plants and trees to an exclusive retirement village in the Cheshire village of Tattenhall, one of the UK’s most coveted postcodes.


The Gifford Lea retirement village will be enhanced by hundreds of top-quality plants and trees provided by our Wholesale Commercial department.


The landscaped gardens are one of the prime attractions of the select development of modern apartments, which also boasts an on-site spa, bistro and beauty salon.


Working with long-standing client and landscaping specialist Ashlea Limited, we supplied a variety of trees, shrubs, herbaceous and hedging plants.


The range of trees we supplied included five Acer campestre (field maple), Crataegus crus-galli (hawthorn), Carpinus betulus Frans Fontaine (hornbeam), four Prunus taihaku (great white cherry) and three Tilia cordata greenspire (small-leaved lime).


We also provided various species of geranium, in addition to more than 260 Hypericum ‘Hidcote’ and around 200 Sarcococca Winter Gem boxwood shrubs.


Hedging plants included 400 Fagus sylvatica (beech) whilst Digitalis purpurea (foxgloves), Bergenia silberlicht (elephant’s ears) and Siberian iris ‘white swirl’ were among the hundreds of herbaceous plants in the inventory.


We are delighted to have played our part in creating the stunning gardens for this sophisticated development in the desirable location of Tattenhall.


We have worked with Ashlea on many previous occasions and they know they can rely on Johnsons to fulfil their requirements for only the very highest standards of plants.


Bruce Tyrer, projects director of Ashlea Limited, added: “The quality of the planting scheme needed to reflect the quality of the buildings themselves, constructed by Seddon Construction Limited. This was the main reason why we chose Johnsons of Whixley to supply the trees and shrubs to this prestigious retirement complex – the plants have helped to transform the scheme.”


We have many years’ experience of supplying quality residential developments, take a look at our work with Spinning Acres as well as our award-winning supplies to Great Kneighton and Tadpole Garden Village.
