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.
We have sold out of Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill'
for the time being but there are some more plants growing on hopefully for Spring 2016 ,in addition we have strong seedlings
growing on of Daphne bholua which should help with supply. I am working on producing Daphne 'Spring Beauty' in reasonable
quantity,this wonderful hybrid of Daphne bholua 'Sir Peter Smithers' and Daphne sombreuil is absolutely covered in
intensely fragrant pink flowers from January and perhaps still in flower in April,it may be a little less hardy than Daphne
bholua but has managed -10c and this is a plant that deserves a sheltered corner.
Lapageria have again been
much soughtafter this year and we do have good plants in 2 litre pots of Lapageria rosea. There are also good plants
of the white form Lapageria rosea 'Albiflora' available.
Returning to the catalogue will be Cornus alternifolia
'Argentea' and we can recommend the small trees Styrax japonica 'Beniban' and Hoheria angustifolia flowering
as they do during the Summer.
