Our Heritage

St. John’s was started in 1958 and is now over 50 years old. We celebrated this event in 2008 and the business is now run by three Oliver brothers – Nick, Simon & Tom. David & Patsy Oliver began the nursery as a smallholding: planting, harvesting and selling flowers and vegetables from the site at the bottom of St John's Lane.
