  • Fabulous foliage

    Overnight rain has refreshed the nursery. There is a plethora of foliage shapes and colours to be seen. This is worth considering when planning and planting a garden. Depth of interest can be achieved by using the shape, colour and texture of foliage as well the overall shape of the plant itself to achieve the effect you want.

    Feathery delicate leaves like Japanese Acers contrast well with large matt green leaves; blue needles of pines contrast with purple or dark red deciduous trees such as purple beech; leaves can be heart shaped, star shaped, tiny and crinkly, or large and hairy. New growth can be a different colour to older growth - like Photinia Red Robin, or a leaf can had a different colour underside like Magnolia grandiflora. All these characteristics can make for an interesting planting palette.

    We all know flowers are fabulous but don't forget foliage, and fruit can be ornamental too!

    Take time before the planting season to enjoy it all.

  • Tree planting season

    Autumn is an ideal time for tree planting

    warm soil and autumn rain means newly planted trees can begin to put their roots down prior to spring growth. As trees and shrubs go into dormancy for the winter they will need less watering - until spring and summer next year.

    We are fully stocked with ornamental and fruit trees, shrubs, topiary and climbers in the nursery - browse our online shop now
