Lodge Lane, Kirk Langley, DE6 4NT
A family run nursery since 1941, when Samuel Walker moved from the nearby Tissington Hall
to take up the post of Head Gardener at the Meynell Langley Estate.
Many changes have occurred throughout the years, notably the greatly extended area of modern glass that has replaced the slowly crumbling Victorian houses which became impossible to repair in the late '60s and early '70s.
The walled garden, complete with gardeners cottage built into it, has been replanted with cherries, plums, peach, nectarines and apricots and now proves invaluable when helping customers with their pruning and training queries.
The adjacent orchard has also been replanted with modern, disease resistant varieties of apple and pears and proves very useful when comparing new varieties against old.
