Delightfully dashing dahlias

In the Victorian language of flowers, Dahlia denotes elegance and dignity.  We have over 40 varieties in stock, something to suit all tastes. They really stand out in a crowd – tall and elegant. Each one is unique, this particular beauty is Dahlia Red Fox.

Autumnal Delights!

After a pretty good Summer with long, warm sunny days, there’s definitely a nip in the air and dewy mornings! Autumn is well and truly upon us and the perfect time for planting. Historically this time of year is the best time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials, with the ground warm and moisture in the soil (hopefully – we need some rain!) We have been busily potting up the last few months and the nursery is now brimming with lots of

Autumnal Treats!

With the onset of autumn the nursery is a hive of activity! We are frantically potting up our new season perennials, grasses & ferns and our stock levels are bursting at the seams again! With the increased demand from garden designers and landscapers, we are also pleased to announce we are also now able to offer a very wide range of material. We now hold on site a full range of Taxus, Buxus and Bay in a variety of topiary

A very eventful September spectacular

It’s difficult to believe it’s September already and the onset of Autumn is well under way! After a very dry year here in the south east, we’ve already experienced one of the wettest Augusts on record! Always a silver lining here at How Green, we have welcomed the rain, as Autumn signifies one of the best times for planting! With this in mind, we have a lot going on this month. Firstly, we have a trade open day Friday 4th

Let The Potting Begin!

We’ve been very quiet on these pages recently – we haven’t had time to update and fill you in with nursery news as we’ve been sooo busy! The weather has certainly helped, with a dry Spring after a relatively wet Winter helping the nations gardeners start in earnest. An upturn in fortune with the economy means our designer/landscaper customers have been flat out on projects, creating some wonderful gardens locally. As we enter August, our stock levels have taken a

The last hoorah of the year

Last weekend we opened our gates to the public for our Autumn extravaganza! We only host these special days three times a year and our September event is a perfect showcase for late season colour! It never ceases to amaze us at the popularity of these days and the attendance was again phenomenal! An ever faithful band of regulars and many new faces were welcomed to the nursery by our staff and Tonto & Ted the nursery dogs! We decorated

Autumn – Hillcroft Revisited!

Seven months after our extensive planting project at Caterham on the Hill, we paid the site a visit, to see how it looked! Back in March, we were approached by Caterham Parish Council to deliver a new planting scheme at Hillcroft Corner, in the middle of Caterham on the Hill high street. The brief was simple. They wanted all the old woody shrubs replaced with something that would be very low maintenance, no watering and would look great all year

Heavenly Heucheras!

As Autumn approaches and many plants start to fade, give some time and space for a Heuchera or two! Being evergreen, they are a perfect perennial to plant now to give some colour through the gloomiest of months! We here at How Green have a thing for a Heuchera and their versatility is second to none. They work very well in pots and containers, either alone or used in a combination with other plants. They are equally at home in

Wondrous Agastache!

Here at How Green we’ve gone all Bee friendly and given our buzzing friends twelve different varieties to feed on!! As we enter late Summer, the nursery is awash with colour and plenty of brand new plants to boot! Amongst our dozens of new introductions is a series of very colourful, free-flowering and above all very attractive to insects and Bees – Agastache. We have grown Agastache in it’s many guises for years, but it’s not until recently where plant breeding

A New Venture!

Last week the hard working staff at How Green finished a project to rejuvenate a prominent bed in Caterham on the Hill in Surrey. Working with the town’s parish council, we scrubbed out the tired, old shrubs and bedding. The brief was a complicated one! A low maintenance, drought tolerant garden that has all year round interest, with the wow factor! Not a particulary easy remit!! The shape and layout of the existing bed did not need changing and in fact
