S Tredgett and Sons, fruiterers and florists

According to Enid Porter in ‘Victorian Cambridge’ George Tredgett had had a florist’s shop on Market Hill from the mid 19th centruy; they had bought a nursery garden business in Mill Road fro Jabez Chater in 1871. This was later sold when Mill Road was developed and they moved to the Ainger Nurseries in Histon Road.
