Autumn 2018

Autumn - the perfect time for planting - traditionally, most planting was done in the autumn months when the soil temperatures are still warm but there is plenty of moisture too. This is still the best time to get trees, shrubs and conifers planted and we have a great range - lots of lovely trees suitable for gardens of all sizes and locations, shrub benches brimming with plants to colour borders all year round and as always, a fantastic collection of conifers grown on site.

New stock of Rhododendron and Azalea have just arrived with lush green foliage and buds formed ready to bloom next spring. Rhododendrons include dwarf, larger hardy hybrid and Yakushimanum hybrids with an array of flower colours from bright reds and shocking pinks to soft yellow and peach shades. To complement we have a super range of Leucothoe which have fabulous winter foliage colour and enjoy similar growing conditions as the Rhododendron and Azalea.

 


 

Looking for Something Different....

    We always have lots of unusual plants here, perfect if you are a collector or perhaps looking for a gift for a keen gardener.

This year we have a superb collection of ornamental beech. Many of the varieties are fairly rare and quite unusual in appearance. Most are significantly smaller than the more commonly grown varieties but will make spectacular specimens. Within the collection we have Fagus sylvatica Roseomarginata - also known as the tricoloured beech due to its beautifully variagated leaves, Fagus sylvatica Black Swan which is a graceful weeping form, Fagus sylvatica Laciniata with elegant, finely cut foliage and Fagus sylvatica Ovalifolium - a small plant with rounded leaves.
