Rather like butterflies to nectar, anyone passionate about British horticulture feasts on the stunning colours, tastes, textures and perfumes presented at the Chelsea Flower Show. And this is exactly what has attracted visitors to Ken Muir’s display in previous years.

As multi gold medal award-winning growers, Ken Muir Ltd’s quality fruits and trees are eagerly awaited and sought out by experts, but most highly prized are their delicious sweet English strawberries, taking pride of place at Chelsea. The Ken Muir displays dazzle passers-by, not just because they look as though they were cultivated in ‘fairyland’, but because one taste and you are immediately reminded why English strawberries are the best in the world.

Founder Ken Muir’s passion for fruit growing first developed into a business in 1965 when he began supplying Ministry Certified Stock. Since then, the company’s reputation has soared and the business expanded.

Now run by his son Roger, the company famously exhibits every year at The Chelsea Flower Show, awarding them with no less than 13 RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medals alongside their countless RHS Garden Merit awards.

Fundamental to their success has been Ken Muir’s original dedication to customer care. As well as Ken’s original guides, the family continues to produce reference materials to ensure everyone knows how to get the best yield possible from their crop, regardless of experience. They also guarantee all plants for six months, run an advisory service, publish regular newsletters and actively promote the ‘Best of British’ varieties as well as introducing customers to some rare plants.

Included in their online and mail order ranges are mulberries, walnut trees, almonds and medlars as well as blueberry bushes, gooseberry and Worcestershire berries, apricots, minarettes and more.
