Boscow Nurseries started life as a small farm run by my Grandfather Harry Gill in the 1920’s, pigs were kept and vegetables grown. During World War 2 the fields surrounding Boscow Farm were planted with vegetables to support the war effort at home, worked by my father Ralph Gill helped by the Land Army Girls.
After the war years turf was grown and successfully sold, some to Bolton Greyhound Track. My father took over and started growing trees and shrubs. Thousands of privet were grown and sold for council house gardens.
My brother and I took over in the 90’s and now my husband and I run the nursery aided by great staff, 2 children and Bruce (the black Lab!).
