Large shrubs are often thought of last when planning a garden, but will often form the very backone of the design, so should be thought of early in your plans ! We stock a wide range of evergreen and deciduous shrubs of all sizes, from the more common types to the rarer, more interesting varieties. If you are looking for a particular shrub and can't see it on our website, then please contact us , it may be in stock or we could locate one for you or at the very least make a good recommendation for a replacement.
