Olive Grove Oundle
Olive Grove Oundle is an exciting plant centre, which specialises in supplying Palm Trees, Mediterranean Plants and Olive Trees for sale in the UK.
Olive Grove Oundle which was founded by Tim and Jacqueline Thackeray in 2009 has really taken off, starting the journey simply as a Mediterranean Nursery, their decision to develop the nursery was born from a desire to create a lifestyle business that would allow them to work, live and meet customers in a relaxed and pleasant environment.
In July 2016 the company was brought by its new owners, Jon and Andy Parrott. As you may know the Parrott family have spent the last 26 years building and developing waterside garden centre, Baston, in to one of the best family owned independent garden centres in the UK.
After taking over Jon decided to make some considerable changes to the garden centre to enhance the customers experience. This work started in September 2016, starting with the garden centre entrance which will hopefully making it easier for customers old and new to find their way around. Also, the deli was moved in to a larger retail space within a new building allow us to increase the current offering and give you the customer a better overall experience. We then started work on a brand-new coffee and cake counter, with we believe enhanced the bistro and allowed those who wanted a quick service for a cuppa and slice of cake.
We have also started serving fresh meat from King Street Butchery based in waterside garden centre. King Street Butchery has built an excellent reputation at Waterside Garden Centre on its vast and high-quality cuts of meat. Alongside the usual suspects, sausages, bacon, steaks, lamb shanks, you’ll also find a great choice of games meats such as mallard, pheasant and rabbit. Their highly skilled butchers, Kevin and Barry make all their sausages by hand on site, thus ensuring that only the finest ingredients and highest quality pork go into every sausage. They also maintain fair prices on the fine meats. but also offer regular special deals to provide an affordable option for all.
As the business is growing we have had a brand-new shutter system to the roof of the nursery allow for a greenhouse effect when the weather is cold and it will also allow the plants to get full sun in the summer months. Along with this new roof we have fitted the entire nursery with an irrigation that will allow us to keep all our plants and tree healthy. These improvements where finished in October 2016.
