Many people will be interested to learn of the recent death of Mr Maurice
Draper of Wentwood Nurseries, Ram Hill at the age of 89.
Mr Draper had been producing salad crops at the Nursery for more than 40
years, at first commuting from Bristol then living at Wentwood. He was
particularly known for his tomatoes which he supplied to many outlets in
Bristol and South Gloucestershire. But local people will remember calling at
Wentwood Nurseries to purchase tomatoes straight from the greenhouse.
In later years as tomatoes became less profitable he grew bedding plants which
he supplied to local garden centres as well as to individual callers.
Mr Draper had been in poor health for some time but had enjoyed chatting to
passers by and visitors.
The funeral will be at 2.30 on October 29th at Canford Crematorium.
