  • Scented shrubs and climbers

    Scented plants can really enhance a summer garden, especially planted around a seating area or near patio doors at the entrance to a house.

    Philadelphus shrubs - also called 'mock orange' -have lovely scented flowers in early to mid-summer. Some varieties reach 3m in height others are more compact. Philadelphus 'Belle Etoile' is a compact variety with arching stems and highly fragrant white flowers with a purple centre. They look equally good as single specimens or in mixed borders with roses and herbaceous plants. They suit most well drained soils and a sunny or partially shaded site.

    Also scented and in full flower now Trachelospermum jasminoides - also called Star Jasmine - a lovely climber to place near a seating area or entrance. It has the bonus of being evergreen too.

  • June highlights

    There are many trees and shrubs looking great on the nursery just now, one little star is Cornus 'Milky Way' - as its name suggests it has an abundance of creamy white flowers (bracts) indicative of stars in the Milky Way. It grows from a multi-stem shrub into a vase shape tree approximately 6m in ultimate height. Red fruits follow the flowers and in autumn it has orange red leaves. It tolerates partial shade and most well drained but moist soils.

    A lovely climber with white flowers - Trachelospermum jasminoides or Star Jasmine is budding up to flower shortly. It has white, fragrant, jasmine like flowers and glossy green leaves. A great plant for a sunny seating area where you can enjoy the fragrance.
