Dibleys Nurseries

Started in 1976 as a hobby, Rex Dibley named his Nursery after the local village, Efenechtyd, but soon changed it to the more pronounceable Dibleys Nurseries. Gareth Dibley joined his father in 1984 after studying Horticulture at Reading University. Rex retired from teaching to spend more time in the business, and his daughter, Lynne, joined the family-run organisation based in North Wales.

The Nursery is set within a 10-acre arboretum garden, open to the public, which has been planted with many unusual specimen trees  and shrubs, and has a miniature steam railway that runs on specified days.

Recently chosen as #RHSCardiff Master Grower, this specialist for indoor plants has accrued a huge list of medals and accolades. In 2017 their tally of Gold Medals won at Chelsea rose to 28, meaning that they have won well over 150 RHS Gold Medals altogether. Their Streptocarpus ‘Harlequin Blue’ was named as Plant of the Decade (2003-12); Streptocarpus ‘Harlequin Blue’ was named the inaugural RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year in 2010; Streptocarpus ‘Polka-Dot Purple’ came second in the 2015 RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year Award. They have won a Large Gold Medal or Gold Medal at every National and International Garden Festival and every major Flower Show held in the UK.

Rex Dibley was awarded the Veitch Memorial Medal by the RHS. This medal is given in recognition of “persons of any nationality who have made an outstanding contribution to the advancement and improvement of the science and practice of horticulture”. In 2016, Lynne was awarded the Reginald Cory Memorial Cup by the RHS for her hybridisation programme for raising new streptocarpus of merit.

Their new Dibleys Streptocarpus ‘Three Sisters’ is a beautiful houseplant that has white, pink, blue and purple petals all combined on one plant which is free-flowering and will bloom for 8 months of the year. A perfect gift, or a treat for yourself.
