About Us

Olive Grove Nurseries is a new and exciting plant centre, which specialises in supplying Palm Trees, Mediterranean Plants and Olive Trees for sale in the UK.

We are a family business which has been planned, developed and structured around our own lifestyle and is now managed and operated by ourselves, Tim and Jackie Thackeray.

Our decision to develop the nursery was born from a desire to create a lifestyle business that would allow us to work, live and meet customers in a relaxed and pleasant environment and the idea to specialise in Olive Trees, Palm Trees and Mediterranean plants came from living and travelling throughout Western Europe for several years where we developed a love of Olive Trees and exotic palms. On our return to England we experienced great difficulties in sourcing similar plants in the UK for our own patio garden and so decided to create our niche business.

As a nation of proud homeowners and keen gardeners, we have all seen the explosion of garden centres and nurseries over the past 20 years, many of whom carry some small lines of Mediterranean plants, but very few will be able to offer the scope, size and variety of our extensive stocks. With over 1200 different shapes, species and sizes of Olive Trees we are sure that we can now be classed as one of the largest suppliers within the UK.

Over the last 12 months, we have travelled Europe extensively in our search for the “Finest” Olive Trees and Mediterranean Plants and now feel we have developed a range to meet our criteria. Each of the plants displayed within our nursery have been specifically chosen and hand-selected by ourselves, taking into careful consideration its quality, form, shape and most importantly its price. Ensuring that we can offer the best value, quality stock to our customers is of high importance to us and paramount to the success of our business.

We also understand the need for providing a high level of customer service to everyone who chooses to visit our site whilst providing you all with a personal and warm welcome.
