Introducing Plants to the People
We are traditionally a wholesale plant propagator and grower of plants called Kernock Park Plants based in Cornwall, UK. We grow millions of young plants (plugs and "liners") each year, destined for over one thousand growers and retail customers.
Typically, is this time of year (spring & early summer) when 75% of all our plants go out the door to our customers. They would traditionally grow them on into pots, bring them to bud and flower where appropriate and then send them to the garden centres and retail outlets around the country for gardeners across the land to enjoy.
The Coronavirus pandemic hit at just the point when we were approaching our peak weeks to despatch young plants to our brilliant customers. Garden centres are of course currently closed, so our main route to market has been severed, leaving millions of plants on our nursery that should currently be growing on with our customers.
Whilst we can hope for things to return to normality as soon as possible; for garden centres to re-open and the route to market be re-established, we wanted to do our best, to try everything we could to bring our plants to you, the people who are crying out for plants for your gardens.
This site is not intended to spoil the amazing efforts of your local garden centres if they have been able to offer delivery services. If they are doing this, please continue to support them
. We are aware from lots of gardeners that have contacted us however, that the demand is not being fulfilled and we have lots and lots of lovely plants that we would like to see planted into gardens!
So, we set up this, an online sales portal using our Proven Winners website. Proven Winners is a brand of products that we are proud to grow and represent for the UK alongside our friends in Europe and the rest of the world.
Within our wonderful ranges ranges on this site, there will be many Proven Winner plants which have been bred and selected under rigorous conditions to ensure they have all the qualities it takes to be a "Proven Winner". Together, supporting these Proven Winners are a whole band of other sumptuous plant varieties, some well-known, others new and relatively unknown, but all plants that we a proud to put together with Proven Winners; "Proven Companions" if you like!
