Herbaceous Perennials have a distinctive stunning flowering season which dies down in the winter months. There are a range of different flowering and non-flowering plants, including our favourites Lilies, Peonies and Geraniums. Perennials are often small and low flowering impact plants, and so are ideal for all gardens. Perennials thrive in a range of different growing conditions from sunny to shady, moist to dry
Many fruit trees display beautiful flowers during spring/early summer, with an impressive leaf coloration during the autumn, which can enhance the seasonal interest in your garden. The Golden Hornet, Granny Smith, Plums, Pears and Apricots are among our selection of small fruit trees.
There are a wide variety of different shrubs, some are all year-round varieties which give seasonal interest, whilst others may be evergreen. Some give wonderful fruits, some give spectacular autumn foliage coloration, others flower during spring and summer months. Familiar examples are Azaleas, Magnolias, Lilacs, Hydrangeas and fantastic flowering Camellias.
Carefully selected and positioned, our trees can make an excellent addition to your garden. Garden trees add height and a sense of maturity to mixed borders. The strategic placement of garden trees can also offer privacy for gardens. Our smaller garden trees, which each grow to a limited size, are ideal for smaller gardens
We have a wide variety of distinctive types of hedging available, from the low or dwarf types that can be clipped easily into tight formal lines, for example Yew, Holly, Privet and the informal flowering Spireae Vibernum, to the larger varieties that form natural boundaries, for example Beech, Hornbeam and Leylandii.
Diverse in shape and size, ferns provide architectural interest, act as foils for flowering plants and form drifts of ground cover. Ferns thrive in acid or neutral soils enriched by leaf-mould in sunless sites and are often found at the base of trees.
Climbers require little support when attaching themselves to vertical structures, and so are ideal for gardeners who are looking for stunning plants for vertical structures, which don’t require a great deal of maintenance. We have a huge range of climbers available, including Clematis, Evergreen Jasmine, Ivys and Wisterias, and a great extent of each variety, for example we have a wide range of wisterias from whites to blues, purples to magentas. Wall shrubs require more maintenance when attaching the plants to vertical structures and so have to be attached to side elevations and grown on trellis supports in order to form the correct shapes and structures. However, they provide a stunning addition to any garden. We have a wide range of wall shrubs available including the bottle brush climbing hydrangea, Evergreen Photinia and the Pyracantha, which beautifully flowers in the spring and can provide a range of vibrant berries from red to yellow.
The name ‘conifer’ originates from the Latin meaning ‘cone bearing’. Conifers feature some of the smallest and certainly the biggest of living wood plants. They are tall and stately, offering decoration and screening. Conifers are quite robust and can withstand a great range of weather conditions, for this reason conifers are a great asset to a modern garden and often live to a great age. We a variety of conifers available some fast growing and others slow growing dwarf specimens, including Leylandiis and topiary conifers that can be trimmed or formed and so maintain their size. Our great range of conifers includes varieties which are evergreen, and so give year-round interest when everything else is looking threadbare, whilst others such as larix drop their leaves in the autumn.
We have a great variety of rhododendrons and azaleas available, especially evergreen which are available in a huge range of flowering colours with the exception of blue, including a large variety of bi-colours. The flowers of rhododendrons and azaleas come in a great variety of shapes and usually bloom within spring, one exception is Christmas Cheer which flowers a bit earlier. Rhododendrons are easily grown, do not require a great deal of maintenance, among a limited variety of plants that will thrive on acidic soils and look particularly striking when planted in clusters. Azaleas come in two different varieties, evergreens and deciduous, as single specimens or in containers. We have a great variety of flowering colours from whites to golds, oranges to pinks. They flower between late spring and early summer. Attractive examples are the Knap Hill varieties which are the largest and brightest in this group of plants.
