  • Evergreen hedging RB

    Rootballed hedge plants are now available, this is an economical way to buy hedge plants of a good size and great quality. They are field grown and pruned, and dug up for sale when dormant October - March. Roots come wrapped in soil and hessian which you leave on when planted. Larger specimens should be staked to help them establish.

    We have bushy yew - Taxus baccata - from 60-80cm to 2m and Western Red Cedar - Thuja plicata - from 150cm to 2m. Yew is a classic hedge plant which clips well, forms a beautiful backdrop to herbaceous borders and tolerates shade - but it does require well drained soil. Thuja also clips well and tolerates heavier soils than yew - a good choice for clay soils - it also tolerates harder pruning than Leyland.

    • Taxus baccata 60-80cm £23.40 each inc VAT (£18.60 for 10+ plants)
    • Taxus baccata 100-125cm £39.60 (£36 for 10+)
    • Taxus baccata 125-150cm £72 (£68.40 for 10+)
    • Taxus baccata 150-175cm £96 (£90 for 10+)
    • Taxus baccata 175-200cm £150 (£138 for 10+)
    • Taxus baccata 200-225cm £180 (£168 for 10+)

    Prices include VAT.

    • Thuja plicata 150-175cm £48.00 each (£45.60 for 10+)
    • Thuja plicata 175-200cm £58.80 (£55.20 for 10+)
    • Thuja plicata 200-225cm £72 (£66 for 10+)

  • Autumn planting season

    After a warm dry summer we have at last had some rain bringing ideal conditions for planting trees and shrubs. We have lots of new stock in the nursery - small and large ornamental trees, fruit trees, shrubs and climbers.

    Ornamental trees range from our small standards (150-175cm now) to 3-4m standard trees, both evergreens and deciduous. Birch and cherry trees are always popular. Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer (an ornamental pear) is a great example of a deciduous tree which is good for screening in the summer months. For something special look at our beautiful evergreen Magnolia standards.

    New stocks of evergreen shrubs include mature Photinia Red Robin (a popular shrub which has bright red new spring growth) and Elaeagnus ebbingei - a quick growing evergreen that does well in windy conditions - including coastal sites- and it has the benefit of fragrant flowers too. We have a good range or small to large laurels for hedging.

    As usual we have a great range of fruit trees, topiary and small shrubs.

    For something special we have some stunning new specimens of multi-stem Magnolia Little Gem, Strawberry tree, Camellia sasanqua and Portugal laurel...

    Come and visit...we look forward to seeing you.

  • The Winter Garden

    January need not be dreary with the availability of so many plants to give colour, form or flower in the winter months.

    There is a lovely cherry tree that flowers on and off during mild spells from November to March called the autumn cherry or Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis, it has small white flowers flecked with pink and there is a variety 'Rosea' which has pink flowers. Both have good autumn colour too.

    Evergreen shrubs Viburnum tinus Eve Price and Skimmia both show pink buds throughout winter and have white flowers in spring. Viburnum tinus Eve Price can be grown as a shrub or as a topiary half standard - great for outside a doorway or as a centre piece in a formal garden. Skimmia Rubella prefers a shady site, it will also look good in a container.

    Conifers - particularly dwarf conifers can add colour and form to a winter garden and contrast beautifully with some evergreen shrubs. Choose a blue needled conifer such as Picea pungens glauca globosa to contrast with red leaves such as Leucothoe Zeblid. Dark green conifers contrast well with burgundy foliage such as Pittosporum Tom Thumb. In hedges beech keeps it's rusty brown leaves to great effect throughout winter, evergreen variegated plants such as holly offer a stunning contrast.

    Hamamelis and Sarcococca are among the flowering shrubs looking good now that have fragrant flowers.

    Winter doesn't have to be bleak, choose wisely and a garden can give alot of pleasure during the dreariest of months - even just from inside looking out !
