The very best in British grown plants
Beaver have been trading since 1973, set in a 63 Acre site in Surrey. The company was started by WHM Wheeler with his son Jeff Wheeler. In 2023 we celebrate our 50th anniversary of being one of the top leading UK Aquatic Plant Wholesalers.
Beaver Plants was developed primarily as an Aquatic plant nursery. The site now comprises of 2 x 11-acre nurseries and a 41-acre fishery complex with 25 acres of water.
The company grows over 1.5 million Aquatics plants per year. In the early 2000's, the company underwent a diversification program and now produces high quality Perennials, Grasses, Ferns, Hosta's, Agapanthus and Bamboo. The Lifestyle plants brand has been successful and consists of a range of compact Cannas, Bananas, Cyperus, Zantedeschia’s and other semi- exotic plants.
Primarily the traditional market has been Garden Centres, Aquatic Retailers, Wholesalers, Landscapers and Grower Nurseries. The company has its own in-house photography and boasts over 13,000 images, which are used to produce our labels, point of sale and website products.
Recently a new range of 10.5cm liner products have been produced for an ever-expanding growers market.
Beaver Plants has always propagated many of its own plants from seeds, cuttings and division. We have also provided plants for many landscape projects and have worked with many landscapers, both with young plants and finished products.
