ESTABLISHED in 1910 we are suppliers of plants to garden centres, stores, nurseries and markets. Reads Nurseries is located in the heart of Norfolk at Dereham.

In 1910 Francis Charles Read moved to Dereham from Costessey near Norwich and established the nursery. His son James francis became a partner in 1930 and became sole owner in 1951. Twenty years later he retired and his son David James became sole owner.Allan James joined his father David in 1990 to establish the partnership that runs the nursery today.Over the last 10 years the nursery has expanded and modernised with the construction of new heated glasshouses and polythene structures.

We presently supply a large number of independent garden centres and stores throughout East Anglia. The nursery has a flexible production set up allowing production of a range of protected ornamental crops.Our aim is to supply you, the customer,with a range of high quality products at the right price and because we supply products direct from the nursery they will have a long shelf life.

Reads Nurseries offers a weekly delivery service in East Anglia using our own transport with experienced drivers who know how plants should be handled. Plants are supplied on tagged or non tagged trolleys which can be swapped like for like on delivery. Orders received by Tuesday lunch time will be delivered the same week.
