Products A wide range of shrubs, climbers, perennials, grasses and a range of what we call exotics all grown in 7cm pots.
The following lists show some of the plants that we grow, or intend to grow for the coming year
It is impossible for us to have in stock and to grow all that is listed, the weather or unavailble seeds can be the causes beyond our control .
Varieties grown We choose the plants to grow as we find and become aware of different plants, as garden trends change so does our range of plants, fashions dictate what our customers require, trying to anticipate this is impossible. We do not grow any plants requiring regular pesticide applications, other than those of general aphid and RSM control, many "new " introductions are not garden worthy, and we see little point in setting up either our customers or their customers for disapointment, think some of the fancy Hebe and Euphorbia varieties. Availability of plants
We are happy to grow to order, and each year a higher percentage of plants are grown this way. If plants are forward ordered we will do our best to let you know when they will be available, and reserve them for you. Some plants are only grown to order because of shortage of stock material, or because they will not hold well in a 7cm pot.

Ordering Plants By phone email post (snail mail for obvious reasons)
Every effort is made to name plants correctly, but this cannot be guaranteed, we are always pleased to hear if you know better. Sollya may have had its name changed but most people know it as this, so we use it. Buddleia named after Mr Buddle, can someone please explain why there is a j in Buddleja but not in Forsythja. What grass is Stipa arundinacea, there at least 5 other names, in fact one could have a full time job updating this one. Give me a job swilling lager on the international plant nomenclature society panel. (this could explain Buddleja)
Hardiness of Plants
Many factors come in to play when deciding if a plant is hardy. We are lucky as we have free draining grade one silt soil, as drainage affects winter tolerance. Our garden is sheltered, but still exposed to cold winds from the North and East. The climate here is affected by The Wash and North Sea. We do get frosts usually from early November, light at first followed by gradually colder temperatures, recently the coldest winter temperatures have been -16C. The initial frost followed by reducing temperatures is I believe why many of the temperate plants survive here, as they gradually aclimatise and become dormant, and the wood hardens allowing it to withstand much lower than expected temperatures. House walls are an excellent bonus, but we are running out fast of wall space. climatic change is very evident here, as 20 years ago one would struggle to over winter Ceanothus and Cordyline. The past 3 years have been particularly harsh after the previous 12 mild years. We continue to grow a range of borderline hardy plants and these are now grown differently and will appear in May and June lists.
