Hello, my name is Dennis Taylor and I have been working in the horticultural industry all my life. From the tender age of 13 years, I worked weekends and nights in the local nursery, helping pick and pack plants for supermarkets. After leaving school I worked there full time before taking on managerial roles in the garden centre of the big DIY stores.

After 16 years of managing stores and sites. I then moved to one of the largest nurseries in the UK looking after the plant centre, where a wealth of additional knowledge and skills were gained. These decades of experience and skill have helped me create D-tail Plants, (the name was created by my 6 year old daughter). We take great pride in growing and supplying the finest portfolio of stock for all your horticultural needs. D-tail Plants is a name that’s growing from day to day. If there’s anything you need, just call and were here to help - that’s my promise!

Wedding & Event Flowers

By The Rainflorist

After starting my Floristry career in a local flower shop I decided to further progress my career through achieving the National Diploma of the Society of Floristry, the highest level qualification in Floristry in this country and Europe.

After working and managing a local florist in York I then took the opportunity to teach others initially at Askham Bryan College moving onto Doncaster College for 12 years.

I then opened The Rainflorist creating flowers for many weddings, events and for TV featuring on Emmerdale.

Now based at D-tail plants I continue to offer superior quality flowers and service for all occasions to enhance your event.
