Our online shop is now closed.

Spring is on the way,

well, according to the calendar anyway, and we are well into taking cuttings. As we all probably know we have experienced the wettest summer, autumn and winter for many years. With late autumn frosts tubers may not have been lifted until well into November, this may cause problems with rotting which we, to a limited extent, have experienced. If you also lifted late and have had very cold weather we would urge you all to check the tubers you may have stored and pay close attention to plant hygiene, If you have left them in the ground over winter may we suggest carefully digging down to inspect them especially if you live in an area prone to poorly draining ground.

The online shop will remain open until February 28th 2013

October 10th 2012

As part of our 2012 planting plan we set out a bed of Collerettes and singles to attract bees and butterflies. We are very pleased with the outcome as the blooms have been smothered with bees and there have been a considerable number of butterflies as well. We encourage you to plant these single and Collerette types to further host bees and butterflies in your own garden!
