The Bulk Nursery has since the nineteen fifties been known as The Nursery for Special Plants. Since then, a wide range of unusual shrubs and trees has been grown here. In 2000 Mark Bulk took over his father's company and Anne joined in 13 years later. Now Mark and Anne run the nursery together with great passion for rare plants, the assortment and nature.
By cultivating a wide range of plants and no use of pesticides, we have very little trouble with diseases and harmful insects. There simply is a natural balance. Many different flowers provide food for insects at different times of the year and in the large mother plant and grass areas rodents, birds and even small reptiles can shelter.
A great part of our plants are grown in the open ground. Therefore we keep our soil in shape by spreading mulch and by sowing green fertilizer on a different part of the nursery every year. All work is done in traditional ways, without large machines or heavy tools. For the rest we try to avoid the use of peat in our potting soil and our container plants are growing in organic and/or peatfree substrates.
You are welcome to visit us! We only ask you to remember that we are a nursery and no garden centre. Therefore we do not have any direct sales or time to give advice. Anyways you are welcome to get inspiration, write down plants you fancy and hand in a written request for a later collection.
