About Westholme nursery
Founded in 1937, by Harold & Nancy Lindop, Westholme Nurseries began life as a smallholding with hens & pigs. They also grew vegetables for sale at the gate going on to grow & supply lettuce & tomatoes to wholesalers in the Potteries. Harold & Nancy grew two sons Jim & Geoff. Jim joined the business whilst Geoff pursued other interests.
Jim studied at Pershore College of Horticulture where he met & married Anne.
Following graduation Jim developed the ornamental part of the business, increasing the area for greenhouses growing bedding plants as well as tomatoes, chrysanthemums & pot plants for sale in the shop together with an expanding range of garden sundries.
Anne went on to study floristry, at Reaseheath College, and to develop the cut-flower element of the Nursery.
Jim & Anne produced three children - Stephen, Philip & Christine who are all an integral part of Westholme Nurseries.
Stephen studied Glasshouse Crop Production at Hertfordshire College of Horticulture & Reaseheath College, Philip attended Reaseheath College & Pershore College of Horticulture to acquire the skills of Garden Centre Management whilst Christine studied the art of floristry at Reaseheath College.
