Hosta - Cultivars A to J

Please remember these are all pot grown, well established plants and will be supplied in pots ready to plant out, not bare root as many other suppliers send.



Hostas offer the gardener the most fabulous array of leaf shape, texture and form, as well as attractive and sometimes fragrant flowers. They thrive in moist humus rich soils.

New foliage emerges strongly in the spring and gently but majestically unfurls. Hosta are deciduous and as winter approaches the foliage takes on glowing yellow and orange autumnal hues. They are incredibly versatile and can be used in all sorts of gardens, Japanese, contemporary, classic, formal and informal. They combine beautifully with other shade tolerant plants such as ferns, Ophiopogon, Hackonechloa, Asiatic Primulas and Rodgersia. Hosta will also make great permanent container plants but do ensure they have enough water (particularly if they are in a sunnyish spot) and they will appreciate being planted in a loam based John Innes compost.

Alchemilla mollis AGM

Alchemilla mollis AGM

5.25 (2 or fewer items) 4.80 (3 or more items)

Common as muck but brilliant for a tough spot. Plumes of lime green/yellow flowers in Summer. Wonderful for flower arranging and the leaves look magical with water droplets sitting on them. Very dry shade tolerant and resistant to deer and rabbits, plus the occasional football or foot.

Often used at the front of borders and complementing other flowering perennials (it looks stunning when planted with Geranium 'Rozanne'), Alchemilla can also be used most effectively to create an area of differing foliage colours and textures - it combines beautifully with small to medium sized ferns.

It will mildly seed around but it is just too useful to ignore! Cutting foliage and faded flower stems back in mid/late summer will produce a second flush of leaves and the odd flower.
