Christmas Trees

Hydrangea paniculata 'Mega Mindy'

Frangula alnus 'Fine Line'


Aucuba japonica - Japanese Laurel




The fabulous autumn weather continues which makes those seasonal garden tasks all the more enjoyable.

Looking especially wonderful in my garden at the moment are Liquidambar 'Worplesdon' showing a cascade of colour from dark red through to gold and Ginkgo biloba ‘Autumn Gold’, aptly named, giving a brilliant gold blaze of colour ahead of my other cultivars – Truly stunning.

I’ve also just planted Frangula alnus 'Fine Line' and Fothergilla major so am looking forward to seeing these grow and add to the autumn colour display.

We’ve got some fabulous stock of trees and shrubs at the moment new varieties included, and the planting conditions are perfect - so what are you waiting for? Take a look through our ever expanding trees and shrubs pages and add a bit more cheers to your garden…and for those of you who are a bit more organised than myself, choose and interesting plant for those hard to buy for relatives and we’ll make sure they arrive when you want them to for Christmas.

Enjoy the weather, Bruce.

We have just launched on twitter, if you would like up to date news and photos

We have the most extensive range of beautiful Ginkgo Trees - varieties and sizes, the leaves looking their beautiful butter yellow colour of autumn now. Please look at the online selection, we have many more at the nursery too.







Bamboo continues to be popular both big and small, with it being such a good choice for screens or hedges, a job it does very well. Choose the larger more boisterous bamboo such as Phyllostachys aurea or P. bissettii for a great hedge, and remember they can be clipped just as you would a conifer hedge. Do bear in mind though these bamboo require a root barrier when planting.

If you have time please look at our links page, amongst the horticultural information there are 2 things that we feel passionate about. The state of our seas and the fish and birds that depend on them, please sign up for Hugh's Fish Fight Campaign and if you can help support the RSPB's fight to save the Albatross.

olive trees for sale   Olive Trees.. still the biggest range in the U.K.


As many of you know Olive trees are becoming regular sights in both private and commercial gardens.

We have always strived to research and provide the best possible range and quality of plants suitable for growing here in the U.K.

Right now at the nursery, we probably have the best selection this side of Tuscany from young trees right up to ancient gnarled specimens
