Roscoea

Roscoea

Exotic looking plants with stunning flowers. We have what may be considered an extreme number of Roscoea, but we have grown them outside for a number of years and find we can have different species in flower from April to October, something very few other woodland genera can offer. We find them easy in a shady spot with a moist but not boggy soil. Plant deeply and avoid keeping them in pots overwinter. They can bea little slow to reappear in Spring.
Sanguinaria

Sanguinaria

Sarcococca

Sarcococca

A group of very fragrant low growing evergreen shrubs, that flower in Winter. They are an important element of any Winter garden with glossy foliage and strong scent, offering a good dose of seasonal cheer. Maintenance is minimal perhaps a light shaping as they mature and they are usually trouble free.

Tiarella

Tiarella

We are continuing to introduce new forms but still keep older varieties in production, probably because they are all good easy garden plants for shade, even dryish shade. Great flowers and fabulous foliage - a winning combination.
Tricyrtis

Tricyrtis

Toad lilies, we hold quite a range that are available at various times in the year. All are available mail order.

Viola

Viola

The Viola odorata forms are all single, easy growing, for a shady spot in the garden. The new Devon violets are much better than the old cut flower clones, not virus infested nor prone to red spider mite. Wonderful in a wild or woodland garden where they will happily seed about.
