If our vast range of plants confused or frightens then perhaps our collections will help you out? Simply choose the type of plant you want and the conditions you have and we will choose you some good plants from our current stock.
Please note that all plants in the collections are our choice and will vary during the year, we do not have a fixed list of what will go into them so cannot tell you until we actually pick out your order. No invasive plants will be included and we always pick out plants we would choose for ourselves!
We are in the process of changing the format of our Plant Collections. The new format collections are "Bundle" style collections where you can see exactly what is in the collection rather than being a random selection of our choosing as in the past.
We seem to have rather over-done the propagation of three compact varieties of Geranium macrorrhizum! 'Pindus', 'Prionia' and 'Mytikas' all grow to just 15-20cm high. They are tough reliable plants suitable for well drained (even dry) soil in sun or shade.
We have a good selection of different varieties of Geranium x cantabrigiense this year and they have been looking very good in flower this spring. They are great for groundcover, even in dry soils.We are offering a collection of four varieties in different shades.1 each of 4 varieties: £12 (normally £14.50)
There are lots of ornamental grasses for late summer and autumn flower and foliage but those that look good in midsummer are less well known, but no less worth growing. We have a collection of grasses that start to flower from early summer and carry on through the height of summer.
Please see the details page for the varieties included.
