Second Willow Nursery
Second Willow Nursery is owned and operated by the G’s Growers Co-operative, supplying plants exclusively to its members. The greenhouse was constructed at Ten Mile Bank, near Littleport in 2005, first supplying plants for the 2006 growing season.
With 2 ha (5 acres) of covered greenhouse, the nursery uses state of the art technology to raise over 80 million plants each year. Located at the heart of our salad growing area, we are able to minimise the distance and time taken to transport plants to the fields, improving quality and reducing our impact on the environment as a result.
Over half our requirements for Iceberg, Little Gem and Cos lettuce are propagated in the greenhouse, as well as smaller quantities of speciality lettuce, celery and onions.
