  • April flowers

    It may be a cold and wet Bank Holiday but there is lots to look forward to this month in the garden!

    Magnolias are in bud and some are starting to flower already. Magnolia Stellata is one of the first, with white star-like flowers, it is a hardy shrub and reaches approximately 2.5-3m ultimately.  They are tolerant of most soils except shallow chalk.

    We stock Magnolia Stellata in three sizes of established shrubs from 60-80cm tall in a 10 litre pot for £38.40 . Please phone us for details of the largest size.

    After that the star of the show is Magnolia soulangeana, the classic pale pink flower with the dark pink/purple base. It reaches approximately 4-8m ultimately.  It tolerates clay soils as long as they are not waterlogged. Both Magnolias thrive in full sun or partial shade.

    And there'll be more flowers when the ornamental cherries start to blossom, more information to follow about them next week ! ...
