Cheltenham is one of the few remaining authorities to have an in-house nursery which not only grows the bedding plants for Cheltenham but supplies flowers to Stratford District Council, Hereford City Council (including Leominster, Ledbury, Kington and Bromyard), Evesham Town Council and Chesterfield Borough Council. Each year some 650,000 plants are grown on from plugs for spring and summer bedding by the nursery team comprising three full time staff and six seasonal workers under the supervision of the nursery manager.
