King and Co are Plant Healthy

King and Co have recently passed the Plant Healthy audit.

King and Co are delighted to retain their Plant Healthy certification for another year.

King and Co are now a Plant Healthy certified Plant Nursery, retail and trade outlet, which now provides even more peace of mind that all of our trees and plants are sourced, grown, handled and treated with the upmost care with respect to biosecurity.

Why plant healthy?

The Plant healthy scheme aims to protect the horticultural industry, other cultivated plants and natural habitats by reducing the risk of introducing or spreading destructive plant pests through the supply chain. It is now becoming an increasingly frequent requirement for supply tenders for tree and hedge planting schemes in the UK.

What does this mean for King and Co Customers?

King and Co are in regular contact with DEFRA and APHA to ensure the Nursery is up to date with the latest plant health regulations, such as the Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) movement restrictions that are in place in London and surrounding counties such as Essex. This means the Nursery is able to be dynamic and ensure its trees, plants and garden centre material are protected – meaning customers ultimately receive healthy trees and shrubs.

The scheme examines the Nursery’s processes from grower to garden. The certification is evidence that we are voluntarily following best industry practices.

Shopping online

You can buy trees, hedging, shrubs and topiary online by browsing our website.
If you do not see a plant or size that is suitable for you then please call as we stock a wide variety of plants in our tree nursery. It’s worth noting that many other websites sell other people’s stock (i.e. they act as an agent) so you cannot view the products at their own site. At King & Co, all of our advertised plants are available for viewing at our tree nursery in Rayne, near Braintree, situated just over an hours drive out of London.

Our knowledgeable and experienced tree nursery staff are always contactable via phone on 01376 340469 or if you have any questions regarding any of our trees or accessories.

If you cannot see what you require on our website, please complete the enquiry form. We will give it our urgent attention and will get back to you shortly with a solution that meets your needs.
