Final Public Open Weekend of 2019
Roll up, roll up folks! Take this opportunity to visit a strictly trade only nursery and growers to the Chelsea Flower Show.
We are welcoming all on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th September – including little ones and well behaved doggies. Join us to purchase some of our beautiful plants and eat homemade cake and drink tea in our gorgeous nursery garden. We only open three times a year and this is your final chance to come and visit us in 2019!
September is a great time to plant, not only for late season colour for this year but for enhancing the garden for next year. The ground will be warm, encouraging plants to develop healthy root systems before the onset of Winter.
Feel free to bring some clear skies and sunshine too please!
See us at the Landscape Show!
We are attending the Landscape Show for the first time in Battersea Park this coming September. The event takes place on the 17th & 18th and is one of the leading trade events in the Landscaping Industry.
Showcasing from hard landscaping materials, lighting through to plant suppliers, there is everything for the garden designer under one roof. There are many trade stands showing their products and you get to meet the people behind them for information and tips.
There are also a series of seminars running throughout the day covering many interesting subjects of debate. ‘Meet the Designer’ slots with some of the industry’s most prominent designers such as Charlotte Rowe, Kate Gould & James Alexander-Sinclair offer an insight into how they got where they are now.
The best thing about all of this? – It’s FREE!!! Come and say hi!

How Green head to the biggest horticultural show in the world!
Last week we flew out to Essen in Germany to IPM, over 1600 trade stands of plant heaven! Our second year in a visiting capacity, we use the opportunity to look out for new plants and to source material for clients.
We specialise in growing herbaceous perennials, but our garden designer customers are looking for the whole package. We have a wide networking chain of contacts now and can supply trees and shrubs in all shapes and sizes. IPM is a fantastic way of finding new suppliers and can actually see the plants they have on offer.
Three exhausting days later and we’ve found some great new growers with a range of wonderful new plants! Hydrangea’s, Camellia’s and Magnolia’s amongst the standout offerings from the 49 countries exhibiting! Growers from as far afield as Taiwan, China & Sri Lanka shows the world is a very small place nowadays!
Going forward into 2016, why not give us a shout in regards to all your plant needs – we will speedily respond to your quotes!
