A little bit about us….

The Parkers Way back in 1933 Martin Duiker-Parker came from Holland and started a mail order bulb business. He was following the footstep of three generations of his family, all bulb growers and exporters and his son, Chris, and grandsons Paul and Daniel are carrying on this tradition to this very day!


We now have three Garden centers in Manchester and Cheshire and a thriving wholesale department along with our mail order side which now takes order over the web as well as by phone or post.
