Interview - Dan Stevens, co-owner, Staverton Bridge Nursery

A year ago, we visited Staverton Bridge Nursery in Devon, at a rundown site recently taken over by Dan and Steph Stevens, who had escaped London to develop a modern, alternative plant centre (HW, 24 September 2010). The nursery, near Totnes, offers homegrown plants and homemade food. We caught up with Dan to find out if they have been able to make a success of the business.
