White flowers with purple backed petals - compact at around 45cm in height. Prefers a moist but well drained soil in sun or part shade. With more hybrida in the cross, this cultivar is more reliable than Wild Swan.

We love this late season herbaceous perennial with its mass of tiny violet-blue flowers in profusion. Grows to around 90cm high in full sun or part shade. Fully hardy, it likes a fertile, well drained soil.

Merry Christmas!

It’s hard to believe another year has whistled by! What a fantastic year 2017 has proved to be! We started early, back in February, with our garden design customers involved in some big projects which got the ball rolling. The garden centres then picked up as the weather improved in the spring. 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 the tremendous 5 star award! The same accolade was given to our customer Nic Howard and his fabulous garden, designed

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 be ready to flourish for the coming year! We’ve been busy supplying our customers with some lovely hedging, trees (including

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 fresh new perennials, grasses and ferns. As well as firm garden favourites, we also have plenty of brand new plants
