About Us

Parker Dutch Bulbs (Wholesale) Ltd. Established 1933

Welcome to our gardening website and we hope you find your visit both informative and enjoyable.


A family Business for over 70 years

As a family business established in 1933 and now involving my own sons Daniel and Paul, we are one of the leading plant and bulb companies in the UK. Because we share a genuine enthusiasm for gardening with all our customers, we are fully committed to providing the best available products at the best available prices.

My late father came from Holland in 1933 during the depression and started a mail order bulb business. He came from three generations of bulb growers and exporters. Since then we have prospered into probably the largest UK mail order horticultural company, which is solely owned and managed by the original family. Our success is based on supplying quality goods at down to earth prices and an effective IT and Despatch Organisation, which delivers an efficient service to our customers.


Our Website

Our website has been designed to provide you with a fantastic range of plants, bulbs and shrubs, with a simple and secure ordering system. We aim to provide new offers every month online as well as a helpful and easy to use search facility, making the experience as simple and enjoyable as possible for our customers. Don't forget to visit our website regularly to check for updated offers and newly added products.

Each product online comes with detailed product information and cultural instructions. We have been working closely with Jeff Turner to create series of helpful, easy to follow "how to" video guides online, offering tips and advice on getting the best results from our plants. Whether a novice or an expert, these videos will appeal to all gardeners. Look for the video icon on the item page or select the Videos link on the homepage to view the available videos.


Customer Service

We have invested considerably in the past few years in our customer care systems, including warehousing and despatch. All orders placed online will receive an email confirmation, clearly showing all items ordered and the estimated delivery details.

We have designed our new website with our customers in mind and we are constantly looking for new ways of making the website as good as it can be. All feedback is certainly welcome and can be provided by using the contact us section or by clicking here.



Our head office and despatch centre are conveniently based in Old Trafford, Manchester. We receive and process all orders from our state of the art call centre and all orders are despatched from the warehouse on-site.
