A wide range of shrubs, climbers, perennials, grasses and a range of what we call exotics all grown in 7cm pots.
The following lists show some of the plants that we grow, or intend to grow for the coming year
It is impossible for us to have in stock and to grow all that is listed, the weather or unavailble seeds can be the causes beyond our control .
We try to choose trouble free varieties those which do not get too many pests and diseases, this keeps spraying to the minimum. Most varieties have been trialled by us but this is not always possible and we are happy to discuss our findings with you. We will always consider growing to order for you should quantities be viable.
Availability of plants
We are happy to grow to order, and each year a higher percentage of plants are grown this way. If plants are forward ordered we will do our best to let you know when they will be available, and reserve them for you. Some plants are only grown to order because of shortage of stock material, or because they will not hold well in a 7cm pot.

Many factors come in to play when deciding if a plant is hardy. We are lucky as we have free draining grade one silt soil, as drainage affects winter tolerance. Our garden is sheltered, but still exposed to cold winds from the North and East. The climate here is affected by The Wash and North Sea. We do get frosts usually from early November, light at first followed by gradually colder temperatures, recently the coldest winter temperatures have been -16C. The initial frost followed by reducing temperatures is I believe why many of the temperate plants survive here, as they gradually aclimatise and become dormant, and the wood hardens allowing it to withstand much lower than expected temperatures. House walls are an excellent bonus, but we are running out fast of wall space. climatic change is very evident here, as 20 years ago one would struggle to over winter Ceanothus and Cordyline. The past 3 years have been particularly harsh after the previous 12 mild years. We continue to grow a range of borderline hardy plants and these are now grown differently and will appear in May and June lists.
