Leading plant nursery Johnsons of Whixley, a family-run horticultural nursery based in North Yorkshire, has supplied plants to two landscaping and constructions companies as part of a major long-term project at Haggerston Castle.

The first phase of stock included native trees, hedging, ornamental and specimen shrubs, which was supplied to Brambledown Landscapes in Durham, which then undertook the initial landscaping, between autumn 2013 and spring 2015.

The 200-acre nursery then supplied various phases of stock to P1 Solutions, from Edinburgh, which undertook the second phase of landscaping between February 2016 and spring 2017.

That work included mature specimen trees, instant hedging, a large range of ornamental shrubs, grasses, heathers and native structure planting.
