It was a hobby that grew and grew for Paul and Geraldine Arnold and this year those early seeds of a business have bloomed into 16 successful years in Depden.

Paugers Plants began at the couple’s Chedburgh home when cuttings from plants for their own garden became surplus to requirement. They took their plants to open gardens, Bury in Bloom displays in Bury St Edmunds and at Nowton Park and in 2000 moved to their Bury Road home in Depden.

There they were able to expand their business and offer public access as previously their home was difficult for people to get to as it was situated down a country lane.

Sixteen years on they still enjoy watching the fruits of their labours grow at their garden and nursery where they stock around 2,000 different plants, shrubs, grasses and trees.

They supply small and grand gardens including stock for Ickworth House and Audley End stately homes.

And customers can bring in a sketch of their own gardens with dimensions and the couple will be only to willing to advise them on what would be best suited for their particular garden.

Geraldine said: “We don’t specialise but aim to offer people gardening which is affordable but which comes with a range of good plants.

“When we started it was just cuttings and plants from friends and neighbours for our own garden and we ended up with more and more plants so we took these along to open gardens and it just snowballed.”

“I especially enjoy talking to the people who visit and showing people what they can do with their gardens and which plants are suitable. “

The plant nursery is open seven days a week and people can discover more at www.paugers-plants.co.uk
