PGG visit to Mount St John, Earley Ornamentals, Yorkshire Plants in Thirsk, Yorkshire

Mount St John

Mount St John, a private garden not usually open to the public. Mount St John is privately owned by Chris Blundell, one of the partners in the Provenance chain of Inns which include The Carpenter’s Arms. The gardens are under the care of Lizzie Balmforth, latterly of RHS Harlow Carr, assisted by a team of seven, including one working just on produce and cutting flowers for the pub chain. The house itself is on the site of a much older property and indeed carp ponds, probably from monastic times, have been turned into a valley garden with brown trout in the bottom pond and water hawthorn, a surprisingly peppery leaf from a ginger-like rhizome, in the upper ponds.

Earley Ornamentals

As a leading independent UK producer and supplier of young plants, with a specialist reputation for reliability and expertise, Earley Ornamentals is committed to providing excellent service and high quality stock.

They have been growing young plants at their 12-acre site near Thirsk, North Yorkshire since 1992. In 2009 after a successful management buy-out from international ornamental breeding giant Sakata, the company was purchased by its managing director Simon Earley. The two companies have maintained strong trading links, with Earley Ornamentals being Sakata’s preferred distributor in the UK. Visit www.earleyornamentals.co.uk for more information.
