Perennials

NEW FROM 2020

The cancellation of most of last year's flower shows, due to coronovirus,  was a source of huge disappointment to gardeners and growers alike. With the nation in lockdown just as warmer weather arrived our gardens became a refuge where we might hope to escape the worries of the world more than ever before. How frustrating than, to be denied the joy of shopping for new plants in the convivial atmosphere of a specialist plant fair, where nurserymen offer the special plants that we all love to fill our gardens with. As both gardeners and nurserymen ourselves, we felt that sense of loss at being unable to enjoy what always seemed such a simple pleasure - the search for and discovery of a long wished for plant, or one that we never knew we wanted but suddenly felt we couldn't live without.

Shopping by mail order might seem a poor substitute but, for the time being, it is a safe way to obtain our objects of desire. So, this winter, we are continuing to offer our range of perennials on-line.  From the safety of your own home, you can now access a choice selection of desirable plants, all grown on our farm nursery, for delivery right to your door. 

Propagation is on-going at the nursery, so that new stock and new varieties will be added as they become available. Many other varieties are stocked in small quantities at the nursery, which can be safely visited by appointment (1 set of visitors at a time only), wihen lockdown is not in effect. We anticipate that this will be able to be relaxed later in the year.

PLEASE NOTE P&P: We have to charge P&P at £8.50 instead of £4.95 for perennials in pots, as there is a lot more involved in ensuring your plants arrive in good condition. However, 'bare root' perennials will continue to be charges at our standard £4.95 for mainland UK.  Other P&P exceptions are as per our other product ranges. This will cover all Mainland UK, but not Scottish Highlands & Islands and other Islands around the UK.  If you order Summer bulbs (including Dahlias) at the same time, two P&P's will be added, but if we are able to ship them together, we will only charge the higher rate of £8.50.  

If you're unsure, please use the 'Pay by Phone' option at checkout and call us for clarification.

We have received many emails from customers saying how pleased they have been in the condition of the plants they have received, and we hope you'll also agree.

Note also that HP denotes Hardy Perennial and AGM the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
