Dibleys Nurseries is an award-winning leading grower of streptocarpus plants. The nursery is based in Llanelidan, Denbighshire, north east Wales.

In 2014, Dibleys Nurseries won their 25th Gold Medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, bringing their tally of RHS Gold medals to a total of 150.[1][2][3]

Dibleys' Streptocarpus 'Harlequin Blue' was named RHS Plant of the Year at the 2010 Chelsea Flower Show. [4]

History[edit]

Rex Dibley started the nursery in 1976 and was originally called 'Efenechtyd Nurseries', taking the name of the nearby village of Efenechtyd at the time. The Welsh name proved difficult for some and the nursery changed its name to 'Dibleys Nurseries', after the family name. In 1984 Rex Dibley was joined by his son, Gareth Dibley, who had graduated with a degree in horticulture from Reading University.[5]
