Instagram post 2222171205862036097_2071959057 Here come the big guns! Our Alliums are waking up at a rate of knots with the mild weather. We grow thousands including this Ambassador cultivar in the foreground. Tall at around 120cm, it produces large blooms 20cm across. Slightly later in flowering from June to July best planted in full sun and well drained, fertile soil.

Instagram post 2222160037311207756_2071959057 It's rained non stop for two days, it's grey and gloomy yet Hellebores defy all the odds to put on a display! Our queen of a collage Lorraine put this nice little selection from the nursery together to cheer us all up! Singles, doubles and anemone centred flowers. We have plenty in stock at the moment.

Instagram post 2219636952691630544_2071959057 Hands up who's fed up with this dreary weather?! Despite the gloom, the mild temperatures are waking up our plants. Our Hellebores have started to do their thang! Fantastic early season plant for a range of flower colour, both single and double blooms. Plant in well fertile soil in shade/part shade - fully hardy. #herbaceousperennials #wholesalenursery #ukgrown #familybusiness #kent #helleborus #plant #spring
Instagram post 2219602219114832167_2071959057 One of our favourites for this time of year when it's dull and grey. Galanthus elwesii doing her thing when all around is bare! A tough and reliable bulb that flowers earlier than a lot of Snowdrops. Big flowers with lovely glaucus foliage. #snowdrops #wholesalenursery #kent #familybusiness #springbulbs

Merry Christmas!

It’s hard to believe another year has whistled by! What a fantastic year 2017 has proved to be!

Before we knew it, Chelsea Flower Show was upon us and we grew the plants for our good pals Chilstone and their beautiful trade stand. They were awarded

Get Planting Now!

This year is flying by at a tremendous rate of knots! It’s the end of November & Christmas is only a whisker away! Whilst gardeners are putting their gardens to bed for the Winter, designers & landscapers go up a gear. Autumn/early Winter is the best time to plant trees, hedging and shrubs, especially bare root & rootball material. The ground is still warm, encouraging root growth and there’s moisture in the soil. Come Spring, the plants will be established and

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
