We have been updating the catalogue recently and hopefully the plants listed reflect
fairly accurately the actual availability on the nursery for Spring at least.
The nursery continues
to grow a range of plants including shrubs,small trees and herbaceous plants,specialising in some more rarely offered genera
and species and we continue to offer a range of Daphnes including some of the dwarf alpine forms.
Daphne bholua and especially
Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' continue to be very sought after and we are still not able(due to difficulties
in propagation) to produce more than a few each year. We do though have some other good species of Daphne in
the pipeline and can offer again soon Daphne collina, and Daphne x napolitana.
Lapageria rosea and Lapageria
rosea 'Albiflora' have been very popular recently and although at present (March) we only have small plants
available in one litre pots,there are good numbers soon to be ready in 2 litre pots and grown up to 60-90 centimetres, I antcipate
that these will be ready for sale in April/May.
For Alpine enthusiasts we have a few young plants of Massonia (Massonia
depressa,Massonia echinata and Massonia pustulata) although these are quite frost hardy,our changeable winter climate probably
means that these choice alpines are best suited to a cold glasshouse or conservatory growing.
