Our outdoor plant area offers a great selection of good quality, hardy plants. Where possible, we source from local growers to ensure the plants you purchase are ready to go straight outside into your garden. Throughout the Spring and Summer we are having regular deliveries of fresh stock, often weekly, so keep an eye out for new plants all the time. If there is something specific you are looking for, please ask and we will try to source it for you if it’s a variety our suppliers grow.
We have sections for trees, (both ornamental and fruit), fruit bushes, hedging plants, conifers, grasses, ferns, shrubs, roses, climbers, heathers, cottage garden plants and alpines. Our new “Plants for a Purpose” areas give ideas and help you choose plants for specific condition or places in your garden: Shady Areas, Sunny Spots, Evergreen Plants, Coastal Plants, Plants to encourage Birds and Wildlife and Groundcover Planting, as well as those that love Acid Soil.
We offer inspiration to our customers by creating changing seasonal displays showing different planting combinations.
