History

Over 60 years

ESTABLISHED IN 1951

In 1951 Lawrence and Vera Walker purchased a plot of land just outside Blaxton, Doncaster. This land had never before been ploughed, but with two years' hard work they had enough crops to sell. As well as passing trade Lawrence would ride his motorbike with a sidecar full of produce to Doncaster market to set up his stall, and so Walkers Nurseries was born.

Back in 1951, we were called Walker's Roses, and today's show gardens are where the roses were once grown on site. We exhibited our produce at flower shows around Britain, winning many awards.
