    BULLACE

    Bullaces are ancient trees, but nowadays are little known and rarely seen. They produce small round wild plums which resemble damsons in many respects, the fruit colour varying from a purple damson colour to a pale yellow, or even green when completely ripe. The fruit is in clusters, almost like tight bunches of grapes, and although they are sometimes used for culinary use they are perfectly sweet enough to eat straight off the tree when ripe, when they simply fall off when touched! They are very hardy and can be grown throughout the whole of the UK. Confusion reigns as to the origins of the different types of wild bullace, Black, White and Shepherd's. They were well known to Tudor gardeners and the origin of the name points to very old origins. Bullace fruit fell out of culinary favour many years ago as they are not as large or attractive as damsons. They do fruit later, however, and are also a favourite of birds and for wildlife in a hedge. Like damsons, though, they are tough as old boots, long-lived and fruit reliably every year. ...

    CHERRY SWEETHEART

    This unusually large, darkest red juicy cherry is highly productive and flavourful, with a tendency to set fruit in tight clusters, the dark fruit often measuring an inch or 25 mm in width. Sweetheart cherries are one of the last eating cherries to ripen each year, ripening over several weeks, not all at once like most cherries, and cropping just into September. The sweet fruit are firm, with a refreshing touch of acidity, and they also resist splitting, The fruit from these seedlings may vary a lot! ... Learn More

    DIERAMA RAY'S RED GIANT

    This unique and absolutely superb plant is simultaneously both the largest-flowered and shortest-stemmed dierama we have ever produced. After flowering tens of thousands of species and hybrids of these lovely "Angels Fishing Rods" we selected only this one that passed all of the tests for a perfect plant. Disproportionately large blood-red flowers open on very short, strong, almost stubby stems with very little foliage to detract from its beauty. Seedlings can invariably vary a lot, but you will get some fabulous plants, the results of 30 years of breeding these lovely plants here at Plant World. Predictably, it produces very few fertile seeds. I must here pay a tribute to Rachel and Rodney Saunders, two good friends, who had for many years supplied us (amongst other species) with new and desirable dierama seeds collected (legally) on their South African mountains. In June 2018 they were cruelly murdered and mutilated, for their possessions, whilst collecting seeds, only one day after making a BBC 'Gardener's World' programme with presenter Nick Bailey. ...

    The rarely offered and very lovely snow white form of "Rosebay Willowherb" is an extremely long-flowering plant which is not quite as invasive as its pink relative. Coming true from seed, it makes a dazzling foil to other brighter flowers in any area where it can be controlled and prevented from straying too far. In poor soil or a wild garden it makes an impressive sight! ... Learn More

    LATHYRUS NERVOSUS

    This rare and extremely beautiful perennial plant is normally perfectly hardy and never fails to attract attention, but it excels in a sheltered position. Sizeable, slightly waxy, clear sky-blue flowers open on short strong stems above gorgeous bluish foliage, and it is a favourite of pollinating insects as demonstrated by the Marbled White butterfly in our gardens here at Plant World in Devon! For a perfect, competition-winning specimen, try one in a large pot in a bright spot indoors or in a greenhouse! It was only re-discovered and re-introduced into our gardens in recent years, but was originally discovered in the Straits of Magellan in 1774, by predictably, Lord Anson. Sorry, very few seeds available, and we regret only one packet per customer ... Learn More

    RASPBERRY FALL GOLD

    Golden raspberries are a rare and exquisite juicy treat, sometimes sold as a specialty berry at farmers markets when they command a high price. Sweeter than red ones, they completely lack the sharp acids and red dyes, so for lovers of sweet fruits they are absolutely perfect. They are rarely eaten by birds the usual thieves, because they are not generally interested in the yellow fruits, so no special protection is needed! As well as being extremely hardy, they are primocane raspberries..... (yes a rare word), meaning they bear fruit on the first year canes. But the subsequent final potential is for TWO fruit crops, the first in late July, then a second bigger yield in September and October, and incredibly, and we didn't believe it until we grew them, right into the first frosts! Grow these raspberries and amaze your guests, and who wouldn’t want to enjoy a yellow raspberry jam or a dessert with yellow raspberries? ... Learn More
