UK: Gardeners' World Christmas Eve BBC special to feature Hull family-run plant nursery

A family-run plant nursery in Hull is to feature in a prime-time BBC program this Christmas. O'brien's Nurseries in Nursery Lane, Hull, has been a family-run business since it began in about 1958 and will appear in a segment on the third winter special of Gardeners' World, on Christmas Eve.

The piece will focus on the history of the business and its cultivation of poinsettias for Christmas.

O'brien's Nurseries was founded by Michael O'Brien in about 1958 and he ran it from 1971 with his wife Collette. The businesses are wholesale growers and importers of ornamental plants for houses, businesses, and gardens.

Their daughters, Michelle Robertson, Debbie O'Brien, and Clare Sharp, took over running the family nursery after their dad died in November 2017, a year after their mum passed away.
