Seasonal Plants

 

We specialise in spring and summer bedding plants.  Between March and May we will produce over half a million plants for sale.  We grow all the firm favourites such as Geraniums, 30 varieties of Fuchsia, bedding plants and some new varieties of trailing Begonia as well as the popular trailing petunias and surfinias.

We also supply plug plants early in the season to order.  These have been very popular and more convenient than the mail order alternatives.  We will contact you when they are ready and you can collect at your convenience whilst knowing that your plants are in safe hands. Orders for plug plants are taken up until the end of December ready for the following spring.  If you have missed the deadline but would like to order, please give us a ring on 01636 704013 and we will do our best to supply if we can.


Autumn & Winter

Autumn and Winter bedding plants are available from September to November. We grow and sell popular lines of Pansies, Violas, Primroses, Polyanthus and Wall Flowers.  We also stock Mini Cyclamen.

September to November is also a good time for planting bulbs and we carry a wide range. 

We make to order winter hanging baskets & containers for collection in October.

 

Grow Your Own. - It's Tasty, Fresh and Local.

 Fruit and vegetable plants are available March to June, some throughout the year.

Throughout the spring the nursery offers a choice of fruit and vegetable plants, including beans, peppers, courgettes, aubergines, melons, cucumbers, strawberry plants and over 10 varieties of tomato.

If you are new to gardening and growing fruit and veg we offer some handy guides to get you started.  If space is limited lots of things grow really well in a big pot or grow bag, and tomatoes aren't as complicated to grow as they might sound.  It's easy and fun, certainly worth a try.

Herbs are available too throughout the year.

Seed potatoes, onion sets and shallots are available from mid February. We supply local gardening clubs and societies with bulk orders, if you would like a quote please contact us.

Fruit trees are becoming increasingly popular for the garden. They can be colourful, structural and productive. We always have a good selection of container grown fruit trees in stock, although early spring offers the widest choice. These can be planted all year round providing sufficient water is supplied during the summer months.

Many fruit trees are offered on a variety of root stocks, this determines how big the tree will grow.  For apples a wide range is available from M27 which is very dwarf to M25 which is very vigorous. We usually stock M27 (2 Metre) and MM106 (3.5 Metre).

For Plums we stock Pixy (2 Metre) and St Julien A (3.5 Metre).

We supply everything you need to plant a tree and give it the best start.  We also supply tree planting guides which show how we plant trees.

We sell many different fruit trees, including plums, cherries, apples, pears and many more.  If you are after something in particular please contact us to see if we have it in stock.

We also stock soft top fruit, the best selection is often available in early spring. Raspberries, Blackberries, Blueberries and Gooseberries are but a few and very popular.

These are generally container grown, but bare root can be sourced in season.
