A potted history of Burford Garden Co., established 1976.
The family of our founder, Nigel Johnson, originally acquired a derelict farm above the picturesque Cotswold town of Burford and transformed it into a plant nursery. In 1976 Nigel and his wife Louise extended the idea and created Burford Garden Co. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength. The 15-acre site with its intriguing sprawl of spacious glass houses has changed greatly over the five decades, including the construction of behind-the-scenes warehouses and offices required to keep Burford ticking over. Perhaps most importantly is the growth in numbers of people who work here (now over 170), a close-knit team that helps to make Burford Garden Co. such a friendly place to visit.
