Straver and Wallis set up wholesale nursery Hortus Loci last October to supply gardeners and landscape architects with a wide range of perennials, trees and shrubs. The pair are now relaunching the retail nursery on the Hortus Loci site in Hook, Hampshire.
The affiliation will give the general public access to more than 4,000 varieties and allow customers to find new plant introductions sooner than elsewhere and to buy larger specimens.
Hortus Loci has retained all its current staff in the move. Each team member will have their own area of expertise and offer specialised advice to customers.
Meanwhile, Hortus Loci and Whitewater Nursery have recently taken delivery of an exclusive range of terracotta pots and planters, designed by Straver and traditionally hand-thrown in Turkey. The nursery is also set to retail its own blend of composts.
