Blue Ribbon Plants is a family-run wholesale plant nursery with a year-round staff of 16 FTE, employing additional seasonal workers from March each year. We have a 25-acre site with six acres under glass, and continue using traditional growing methods established by our founder Walter Back (1933-2019).
The growing team consists of Robert Back (Walter’s son), together with Rob’s partner Inga and her brother Aivaras. The management team’s final member is Jan Devos (née Back) – Walter’s niece – who manages the business, legal, and administrative side of Blue Ribbon Plants.
On 1st April 2022 the business originally founded by Walter was transferred as a going concern to Blue Ribbon Plants (Birdham) Ltd.
