We are always scouring through catalogues and visiting growers to find new or unusual perennials to add to our range. We always test how they grow, how hardy they are and whether they perform as well as the suppliers suggest before recommending them to our customers. If you’re one of the lucky ones to purchase one of these new varieties in the first year we will ask for your experiences with the plant - the best reviews are from those that have purchased them and grown them in the local area.
A few of our favourites:

Herbaceous perennials are such important plants in the garden, bringing splashes of colour in almost any situation and throughout many months of the year.
We are extremely passionate about our perennials as we grow 1000’s of them every year from the tried and tested to the slightly more unusual. They are all grown at their own pace - no forcing on in hot houses just to get them out for sale for a specific time, so you can be assured that you get a strong plant that will grow well once you get it home. Because we grow them we have a vast knowledge about which will grow in sun, shade, damp, dry, be tall, be short or any other situations you can throw at us.
We grow numerous batches throughout the year so our availability is always changing. If you are after a specific variety please contact us to check whether we have them in stock. Click the link below to get a list of our most common stock lines.
It’s always best to pop in and see what we’ve got in stock at different times of the year and if we run out of our own we have a selection of trusted local growers to help top up the benches.
