Greenwood’s original nursery, specialising in a wide range of deciduous shrubs and native hedging, and the growing of perennials and ferns
Willaston Nursery has an enviable location on the outskirts of a beautiful village in South Wirral, and it was here that Greenwood Plants first began.
Set over 14 acres, Willaston stocks a wide range of plants, from conifers and 2/3L deciduous species to shrubs, herbaceous perennials and ferns. Willaston does the majority of its own young plant production and specialises in the propagation of a wide variety of plants. Other specialities include hebes, roses and native hedging, including cell-grown production of English provenance.
Willaston Nursery is also the base for Greenwood’s accounts department.

Dominik Jacubczak is Greenwood’s Northern Nursery Manager. He is proud of the Willaston team’s spirit, perseverance and teamwork. Dominik has worked for Greenwood for 16 years which, as he says, ‘speaks for itself’. He enjoys the friendly environment and takes great satisfaction from having contributed to Greenwood Group’s growth.
A few of Willaston’s plants have a special place in Dominik’s heart. He admires the hardy evergreen holly Ilex x altaclerensis ‘Golden King’ for its lovely yellow-edged leaves and fabulous showy berries in autumn. This small bushy plant can be used in hedging or as an individual plant. He also loves hebes, which have so many varieties boasting a wide range of stunning leaves and flowers.
