Established in 1947 by brothers Charles and Jack Kinder, the nursery started out as ‘Kinder Brothers at Harborne Lane Nurseries’. The brothers mainly grew exhibition chrysanthemums, vegetable plants and bedding plants. The business developed when the brothers bought a shop in Northfield for John’s mother, Emma Peggy Singleton. After leaving school, John went on to train at Pershore Horticultural College and, upon completing his studies, he took over the work of his uncles. It was at this point that he renamed the garden centre as Singletons, after his father Lionel Singleton.

The business moved to its current Lydiate Ash location in 2001, where it sits on 11 acres of land. Growing from strength to strength, business expansion has included more commercial growing, a landscaping division and most recently, the opening of The Potting Shed Café in 2016, which has been a great success.

Always an excellent service.

The communication with Singletons was very good. They rang to confirm our preferred delivery date, and also rang on the morning of the delivery to confirm arrival time. The delivery team were great. The turf was good quality and looks fabulous now it’s laid. Would highly recommend.

Really pleased with the service I received from singletons. Ordered 15 rolls of turf on a Saturday afternoon and it was delivered at 9.20am on the following Monday. The delivery driver was a lovely gentleman and he carried the turf into the back garden for me which was a great help. Will definitely be using Singletons again.
