Tullett’s Nursery, Waltham Abbey

by-the-nursery-alice-edward-ted-(son in hat)-&-young-son-harry-tullett-c1924Alice & Edward started the nursery after the 1st World War at the same time they built a Bungalow at 115 Honey Lane, this was on 1/2 Acre of land on which he also grew all fruit trees possible & vegetable & flowers, very self supporting.

My father Ted worked for him on the Nursery until I was born in 1937 when he must have sold the place.

I’m not sure if he was the owner or leased the Nursery from Hereward Wake, as a lot of market gardens, nurseries & farms in that area were leased?

115 and 117 Honey Lane were compulsory purchased to provide access to the Ninefields Estate from Honey Lane.
