Shrubs

We grow a range of interesting shrubby plants including many from the Caprifoliaceae.  A lot of the shrubs we grow will work very well when grown mixed into the herbaceous perennials and grasses that we grow in a naturalistic style and some can be pruned hard in spring to give fresh, whippy growth each year to keep their size down.  Feel free to ask for pruning advice on any of them as most have several options.
