As you can see we grow a very wide range of Ornamental Grasses and appreciate that the size of the list can be daunting if you don't know what you are looking for. To start with the Refine options down the left hand column can help you to find suitable grasses by choosing colour, height etc. If you only have a small space don't discount taller grasses. Sometimes a tall, narrow grass that takes up very little area can be really effective in a narrow border.
If you need further help choosing your grasses then perhaps our Collections would be suitable? You choose the collection to suit your requirements, we choose the plants suitable for the collection when we pick your order out.
If you want more specific help then please feel free to phone or email (email probably easiest) and we will talk throguh what you need and make suggestions.
