J. A Jones & Sons was established in Southport in 1900, and has earned a reputation as a high quality tree and shrub nursery. We currently grow in excess of 100 acres of field grown trees, ranging in size from hedging transplants to semi-mature and multi-stem trees. Grown on Southport’s inherently fertile soil, excellent fibrous root systems are developed, which when combined with our strict growing regime, produce strong healthy trees. Our trees are lifted strictly to order to ensure they arrive `nursery fresh`. For those projects taking place outside the `traditional` planting season, we grow over 7000 container and air pot trees, enabling us to maintain continuity of supply.
