New Glasshouse For Glenrothes Plant Nursery

Thursday 28 October 2021

Fife garden centre, Hedgehogs Nursery, has been transformed into an oasis with a major investment in the business by installing impressive glasshouses at the centre based in Southfield, Glenrothes.

In 1990, Robert Kean, a qualified landscape architect, decided to leave full-time employment to start his own landscaping design and construction company which would quickly become Hedgehogs Nursery.  Working alongside his wife, Pat, they have developed the business over the years into a popular and successful venture.

Robert said on the latest development of the Hedgehogs Nursery: “It has been an amazing journey from the early days.  From designing and creating beautiful green spaces for people to enjoy, to the creation of the nursery and garden centre, we feel we can offer the complete package in Horticulture with care and consideration for our customers.”

Supported by Business Gateway Fife’s Financial Support to Businesses (FSTB), this major renovation project has provided a safe and attractive location for visitors to the Nursery, along with additional space for protecting and displaying shrubs, trees and flowers.

Business Gateway adviser, Alasdair Busby commented:

“Hedgehogs Nursery has performed very well through the COVID pandemic and this installation will strengthen their market position even further. The FSTB investment has allowed them to turn the business into a visitor centre, where people can spend time browsing the wide variety of products in an attractive and protected environment.”

The main business focus is open wholesale and retail sale of flowers, plants, seeds, fertilisers, landscaping materials, bark and soil.  This is carried out through their garden centre/nursery and through their very successful online platform at Scot Plants Direct
