Old favourites
These are the plants that we all know and love, perennials and shrubs from Asters and Aucuba to Veronica and Viburnum . We have a number of different varieties of campanula, geranium and hemerocallis (day lilies). We always have them in, although we do occasionally sell out!

The unusual
Try one of these daringly different varieties, and let others ask what that is in your garden. Centaurea atropurupurea – a rich burgundy, thistle-like flower with feathery foliage, with attractive seed heads following. Francoa sonchifolia, a rosette-forming perennial with spikes of pretty white – pink flowers and dark pink markings. Bidens aurea ‘Hannay’s lemon drop’, upright perennial producing yellow flowers with white tips in late summer and autumn. Rumex flexuosa a very unusual low growing perennial with dark brown bronze arrow-shaped leaves.

Bulbs
We currently have a selection of bulbs including traditional narcissi and minature species, including Tete a Tete, Minnow and Pipit, Tulips both single and double such as Kees Nellis, Lucky Strike and Carlton. Botanical (minature) tulip tarda, turkinstana and urumiensis make a striking addition to tubs and baskets. Other bulbs include Fritillaria imperialis, Eremus bungei as well as snowdrops and hyacinths.

Grasses
Ornamental grasses are fantastic for softening hard landscaping and using as a contrast to plants with bold outlines. They come in a wide range of shapes and subtle shades to suite every garden style. Most gardens can accommodate several varieties.

Fruit
Soft fruit including red, black and white currants and the new Jostaberry – an excellent cross between gooseberry and blackcurrant. Rasperry , strawberry plants and rhubarb as well as some fruit trees.

Trees

Seeds
Whether you choose to grow flowers or vegetables, growing from seed just can’t be beaten. We offer you a superb range of Unwins seeds for all gardens large and small; you’ll find the varieties you need to produce superb produce, even in pots and containers.

Sundries
