Small Town Garden
Here at Big Plant Nursery we love water gardens for the atmosphere and drama they create and best of all the speed at which water and water side plants grow. Our own Gunnera manicata reaches 3 to 4 metres high each summer with it's huge giant rhubarb leaves, others such as the Skunk cabbage, lysichiton americanus produce in spring a bright yellow torche like spathe followed by large cabbage like leaves.
There are so many plants in this group to choose from we have selected a choice range to grow and sell providing both dramatic foliage through to stunning flowering plants. So wether you have a small back garden pond or a lakeside garden I'm sure there will be something to suit.
