Having traveled all over Europe to find quality plants for the nursery the trucks are arriving weekly full of fabulous plants. Much, much more than we can include on our website. We have a huge range of large specimen and screening plants available, something that we are asked for more and more. I've found that tweeting photo's work's well and is immediate so will do my best to keep the Iphone busy. Also if you require images of any plants we can now easily send video clips to make choosing more simple. Just ask and we will do our best to help.

This month as we expand our range of plants for sale we are pleased to offer 5 great varieties of Liriope muscari a fabulous flowering groundcover plant that we think fits in well with our kind of plants, please have a look and let us know what you think.

We have a huge range of evergreen (and evergrey) plants. They give structure to your garden and can make a great architectural statement. A few examples are: Palms - Trachycarpus, Butia, Chamaerops and Brahea. Buxus, balls and pyramids. Phormiums and Cordylines,Eriobotrya and Callistemon, and always a favorite here, Bamboo .

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
