Whereas some nurseries just supply what they grow, we aim to provide a one-stop quote and supply shop for our customers. It may take us a few days to pull your order together, but the hassle it saves our customers makes it well worthwhile.
We can quote for your planting scheme, we can visit you on site and make suggestions [through video call at present] or you can email through a border specification and we will come up with a rough planting plan. Over the years, we've supplied almost every size of project with all manner of plants.
We'd love to see you, albeit remotely at the moment. We're regularly finding people in the trade who've lived locally for years, but didn't know the wholesale nursery existed as Barters to many of them was just a Plant Centre.
If you'd like to see our stock, please email us so that we may arrange a video tour. We have one bed near the office where orders are set out. Apart from that, all the stock you see, excluding plugs and liners, is available for sale. You can select and pay (cash, credit card or cheque) and that's all there is to it.
As Barters has been around for more than 60 years, it has witnessed the birth of garden centres, product merchandising, the introduction of VAT, the bitterly cold winter of 1963, the drought of 1976, the winter of discontent and the boom and bust cycles of the last few decades. The following link takes you to a potted history as well as a glimpse of catalogues that span half a century.
