What We Do

Todds Nursery is a family run company led by father and son Jon and Will Todd. Our customers include Landscape Architects, Garden Designers, Developers, Landscape Contractors, House Builders, Private Estates, Local Authorities, Golf Courses and many others.

We have a stock of larger trees, some of which have been grown on the site since the beginnings of the business, as well as a large range of smaller trees, shrubs, and hedging plants. When it comes to supplying projects, we take care of everything from planning and procurement, through to production, logistics, delivery, planting, and aftercare. We tailor each package to the personal needs of the client.

Whether you want hundreds of mature trees to be supplied over many years, or a single order of whips for a new landscape, you can be sure of the same levels of care, quality, and customer service.

Our People

Jon Todd – Director

With more than 45 years’ experience in all aspects of the industry, from nursery growing through to planting, landscaping, aftercare, and tree surgery, Jon has spent his entire career fulfilling a passion he has had since childhood: to work with trees.

“My honest belief is that trees are important in society. Not just in the workplace, or for their environmental benefits, but in terms of the everyday wellbeing they help to engender.”

- Jon Todd.

Today he utilises that experience daily in the nursery he founded 30 years ago. His unrivalled technical knowledge brings the very best production techniques to work in producing the highest quality products for our clients. His worldwide market knowledge and industry contacts, built up during his long career, allow us to procure the very best specimens. Meanwhile, his landscaping experience means that we deliver exactly the product that our customers want, exactly how and when they want it.

Will Todd – Director

Born into the family business, trees are all Will has ever known. Serving as an apprentice nurseryman during the summer holidays as a teenager enabled early years of work experience where he absorbed knowledge, not just on technicalities of growing such as how to produce robust roots and containers, but also an understanding of the landscaping industry.

After studying Environmental Science and Economics at University, Will returned to the family business and was soon project managing large landscape and construction products, including delivery of the landscaping at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 which at the time was the largest landscaping project in the UK.

Continued years of practical experience, which also saw him qualify as a Crane Lifting Supervisor, has helped Will to understand how trees fit into the final vision of a project, and the technicalities and logistics needed to deliver that vision.

Our Nursery

Todds Nursery is a modern and progressive tree, hedge, and large shrub nursery located in an idyllic village in Bedfordshire. Our 72 hectare site grows and supplies a wide range of varieties, from 14-16cm girth, up to extra large semi-mature trees of 100 cm girth plus. In addition, Todds Nursery offers a large range of multi-stemmed plants, and a selection of ‘instant hedging’.

We use the latest innovations to ensure that our plants are produced to the highest quality with the lowest environmental impact possible. We use peat-free growing media for all our production and our water and nutrients are tested to ensure plants receive optimum nutrition at all stages of growth. We use the minimum amounts of crop protection products necessary to maintain plant health and quality, and operate using integrated pest management and biological control principles.

This includes the use of beneficial fungi in compost and the promotion of habitats for insects such as natural predators and bees throughout the nursery.

Biosecurity is a key consideration at Todds Nursery. Wherever possible we source UK-grown stock, backed with full traceability and record keeping. Where a particular species may be prone to a particular issue, we source only from trusted partners which are free of the disease. In addition, we regularly inspect all our sources and work closely with relevant agencies such as Defra and FERA to ensure we not only meet all legal requirements, but do everything possible to manage any risks.



We offer a vast number of services ranging from tree installation to design consultation. Whatever your order size or requirements, we will devise a bespoke service to suit your needs.
