The first Otter Nurseries was opened in Ottery St Mary, Devon. The year was 964 and its founders, Malcolm and Marilyn White simply grew vegetables to sell at markets across east Devon. The name was simply a reference to the place where it all began and the fact that it was a nursery. The business was successful and one centre became another. The business has stayed focused on the southwest of England. Due to slow and steady expansion and being able to react to the local markets, the company has remained profitable for over fifty years. It continues to be one of the most respected nurseries in the area.
