‘Wow’ Plants!

By Jill | September 26th, 2014

“Wow, what fantastic plants!”

This is what one customer said to me this morning as he watched the lorry being unloaded with our latest delivery.

Each plant has been hand picked for us by Graeme, our Nursery Manager, and they are truly magnificent. ┬áSo if you are looking for some screening, a mature shrub or just a treat for your garden, pop in and see us, they won’t be here long!

Hope to see you soon,

Nature’s Larder

By Jill | September 18th, 2014

As I was walking around the nursery this morning, I was overwhelmed by how full and beautiful Nature’s Larder is at the moment. The selection of trees and shrubs that are dripping with fruits and berries is huge.

As a fan of all things pink, I was instantly drawn to the Sorbus vilmorinii with its deep, rosy pink berries hanging in clusters; these will fade to white through the winter. I love the crab apples too, it would be difficult to choose which are the most attractive fruits; the bright shiny, red flowers of Malus ‘Red Sentinel’ ,the slightly more delicately coloured Malus ‘John Downie’, the rich, dark purple Malus ‘Harry Baker’ or even the opulent golden beauties hanging from the Malus ‘Golden Hornet’, all so different yet so worthy of admiration. There are big clusters of pillar box red berries hanging from the elegant Cotoneaster ‘Hybridus Pendulus’, a semi-evergreen tree. The Rhamnus frangula, much loved by butterflies, are a mass of shiny, black berries. There are many, many more – come and see for yourself and perhaps your hardest decision will be …. crab apple jelly or sloe gin!

Hope to see you soon, Jill
