I write to inform you of the valuable service that Glenn Springthorpe and his team at the Nottingham City Council Nursery provide. With no hesitation I would recommend their service provided in the supply and delivery of bedding plants. The quality of the plants provided has been excellent, uniform size, right size for planting, clean and tidy. This standard is very important to us and I'm sure this has contributed to retaining Green Flag Status in a number of our Parks and Gardens.

Delivery is timely and accurate meaning none of our time is wasted. The team members are always polite, conscientious and very helpful.

In the past we have used private independent growers and nurseries, none of these have come close to providing us with anything like the service given by Nottingham City Council. We are delighted and plan to keep using the excellent service provided.

Finally I would like to say a big thanks to Glenn and the Team and look forward to continuing our working relationship."

Nick Eason, Grounds Maintenance Manager, Newark and Sherwood District Council

"I have used Nottingham City Council on many occasions for both hanging baskets and seasonal bedding. I am delighted to say that the quality and service have always been excellent. The baskets display masses of flowers and striking colours, the seasonal bedding has equally provided the same great colour and vigour! Delivery has always been on time and offers flexibility to cater for any specific needs.

It has been great working with a neighbouring Authority who have provided a personal, honest and efficient service throughout the seasons. Keep up the great work!"

Richard Hodgkinson, Technical Officer, Amber Valley Borough Council

"Our partnership with Nottingham City Council's Nursery has blossomed over the past three years through the commissioning and creation of a floral trail of wicker sculptures, which has been greeted with tremendous enthusiasm by city centre shoppers and has generated extra footfall for businesses. Imaginative planting and daily maintenance by the Council's dedicated team ensure that the sculptures are attractive throughout the season. The icing on the cake for the Nottingham BID has been a Civic Society Award and an award from East Midlands in Bloom. A great result all round."

Neil Fincham, Director, Nottingham BID
