Accreditation first for The Grower


The Grower, a bareroot hedging and tree nursery based outside St Agnes, has received Plant Healthy Certification.

The first grower in Cornwall to receive this accreditation, the voluntary Plant Healthy Certification Scheme enables businesses and organisations to be independently audited as a means of formally demonstrating that they comply with the nationally recognised Plant Health Management Standard.

Director Chris King said: “It’s fantastic that we’ve been able to achieve our Plant Health Certification this year. It’s a massive achievement for the team and shows the hard work they’ve put in over the last 12 months.

“The Plant Health certificate allows us to demonstrate to our customers we are producing plants to the highest plant health and environmental standard. We are incredibly proud.”
