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
