We've got a lot of great customers who have been using us for many years both as Provender Nurseries since January 2013 and, before that, as Wyevale East Nurseries. This is what some of them have to say about our service and our plants and products...
Since Provender Nurseries opened a few years ago (as Wyevale East before 2013) they have been my main supplier of plants. This was particularly important for my RHS Silver Medal winning show garden at Hampton Court Palace. The team's enthusiasm and their commitment to provide the highest quality of stock, combined with their efforts to source the occasional unusual request, are paramount to my success with my clients. The Provender team anlways ensure that the plants delivered are exactly as expected. Their ability to deliver on time enables me to totally rely upon them, which in turn reduces my workload. I thoroughly recommend Provender Nurseries.
I run a busy design and build firm in central London, which dictates a hectic and demanding schedule. For over 6 years now I have had the pleasure of working with Provender Nurseries (Wyevale East before 2013) and this collaboration is one of the secrets of our success. They always have what I need and they always say yes to delivering it when I need it. Plus everybody is so easy going and pleasant to work with. To have top quality plants sent at any day of the week into any location, with compost and pebbles just makes my life so much easier. When my crew is happy, then my customers are happy.
Provender Nurseries is a great resource for any landscaper or designer - a one stop shop for plants, soil, pebbles, stone, sail-shades etc. Provender Nurseries (Wyevale East before 2013) has been my primary source of plants since 2006, due to their year round fantastic plants, especially the larger specimens for 'instant' gardens many of my clients want. The knowledgeable staff always do their best to get the unusual specimens that I need as showpieces for my smaller gardens. Everyone is so helpful and pleasant to work with. I love the easy to use online ordering system, it saves me so much time, what great service! It's great to be able to get what I need delivered when I want it. Bring your clients to Provender Nurseries, I do, they love it!!
It's wonderful...Provender Nurseries is the kind of place that all professional garden designers and landscapers should have at the top of their list. A recipe of a year round stock of thousands of carefully nurtured plants, up to very large containerised specimens, coupled with outstanding service, professionalism, efficiency and on time every time delivery -all served with a large dollop of humour - make for a dish that is hard to resist!
’Being a family run business, uniformity of quality and supply is important to GI Landscapes when selecting suppliers. GI Landscapes have been using Provender Nurseries, formerly East Horticulture and Wyevale East Nurseries, for both plants and soils for many years now and the quality and service has remained consistent throughout. We find the team are professional and a pleasure to deal with. They are always open to our requests for plants and sundries and happily collate orders together for us to same our team time. As well as great customer service, there is always a cup of tea and a smile when we come in through the door.
To put our comments below in context Provender Nurseries source a significant number of plants for us annually and have been faithfully serving us for the past six years (including under their previous guise of Wyevale East). The superb staff team and their dedication to supplying both great quality plants and excellent service time and again, mean that for us they are simply the first choice every time. They genuinely do everything possible to help source plants from the high quantity number orders, to the large and unusual one off specimens. Deliveries are efficient and reliable making the experience as a whole easy, stress free and enjoyable. We have no hesitation in our whole hearted recommendation of this knowledgeable bunch!

Streetscape provide apprenticeships in landscape gardening to 18-25 year olds who are long-term unemployed, helping them to build the skills, experience and attributes they need to fulfill their dreams and move into and retain work: growing lives, transforming landscapes. ‘The people who work for Streetscape are a pleasure to have on site as they work in a clean, tidy, polite and professional manor at all times. Provender Nurseries are happy to support such a worthwhile charitable cause which brings new talent into the world of horticulture.’ – Richard McKenna, Managing Director of Provender Nurseries
I've been using Provender Nurseries (and before that, Wyevale East) for just over three years now and have always found I can rely on the superb quality of the plants there. The range of plants is good too, making the sourcing process even easier. The staff are both helpful and knowledegable and if I need something unusual that they haven't got they'll do their best to source it for me.
I have been using Provender Nurseries (previously Wyevale East Nurseries) for plant and sundries supplies for around 5 years. As a commercial landscape maintenance and design business with clients expecting only the best and at the best price, we have always been very happy with the quality of the plants and the level of service is excellent. Challenges are met with enthusiasm and my requests for strange and unusual plants with professional courtesy and care. The team are an exceptional bunch and without giving too much away I can honestly say, it feels like being at home whenever I visit.
Provender Nurseries provide exeptional service, are incredibly reliable and deliver on quality. What more could you ask for? My clients demanding expectations to provide great plants for their newly constructed gardens could be a headache, but with Provender Nurseries' exceptional service, the online ordering and the genuine interest in what is to be achieved, makes them first on my list. If they dont have the plants, they know where to source them. They have also developed a palette of interesting and unusual plants that are not easy to get hold of, this creates an extra dynamic to their success!!
Having stumbled upon Provender Nurseries a number of years ago, I was keen to peruse their impressive range of plants. Both the usual and unusual are here on this large and well laid out site. Whether you are after specimen trees, clipped topiary or the tiniest of Alpines they can all be found in abundance and are stocked in a range of pot sizes to suit most needs, as indeed are the genuinely helpful staff. There's always someone who will take an interest and give you the time and help you require.
Last year, in 2012, as testament to the quality of the plants, Twigs won na RHS Silver Flora Medal at Malvern Spring Show and an RHS Silver-Gilt flora and People’s Choice Award at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, both of which were entirely stocked with plants from the nursery straight from the cash and carry beds.
I am very happy to recommend Provender Nurseries to others.

I have been a customer at Provender Nurseries (previously Wyevale East) for a few years now. Many plants for my World Garden at Lullingstone Castle have come from Provender Nurseries and know I can rely on them to look good and stay healthy. Richard Mckenna and his team are both friendly and helpful and have some great plant knowledge. Through my involvement with Provender Nurseries' seminar day earlier this year, I have had many new visitors to the World Garden.
