In 1897 the late Chas. Gregory took over the tenancy of Old Close Nursery, Chilwell, where today general nursery stock is grown and the office is situated. But, when in 1919, he decided to specialise in the growing of Roses, he procured some 30 acres of land on Toton Lane, Stapleford, where his roses flouished and the foundation stone of the present firm’s activities in roses was laid......highest standards of cultivation and only the best will satisfy foreman Bill Pears......under his experienced eye, the stamina of “Chilwell Mark” Roses is maintained.
