  1. Allium carinatum pulchellum


    This ornamental onion has narrow leaves on the lower part of the stem and nodding, rich red-purple, bell-shaped flowers, which are borne in loose umbels. It will soon bulk up making impressive clumps. Bulbils are small offset bulbs which will produce quicker results than growing from seed. ... Learn More


  2. Sesamum indicum


    The plants are usually grown for their tiny, heart-shaped seeds, jet-black on the outside and white inside, which grow in long, oblong pods. Mainly used for flavouring, their nutty taste is similar to, but slightly stronger than white or yellow sesame seeds. They are sometimes also used for their aesthetic appeal, or as a topping to white-coloured foods such as bread rolls. Sesame seeds and sesame seed oil are also used for food and skin care, having a rich tradition of medicinal use, and are also used in traditional Chinese medicine as a treatment for hair loss, and as a liver tonic. ...

  3. Sorrel


    Broad-leaved Sorrel is a perennial herbaceous staple of the kitchen garden. The leaves can be eaten either raw or cooked with their acidic taste being likened to limes, lemons, rhubarb and wild strawberries. When cooked it often accompanies egg, fish and makes a delicious ingredient to soups. Once established the plant can be harvested over several years as a cut-and-come again crop. ... Learn More


  4. Brugmansia ornage glory


    Multiple, vibrant, deepest orange trumpet shaped flowers up to 30cm in length bloom simultaneously and repeatedly throughout the growing season. Each flower emits a gorgeous perfumed scent especially in the evening making this an idea patio/conservatory plant. Plants are shrubby in nature but tender in colder climates growing from 1 meter to 2.5m. ... Learn More


  5. Calochortus catalinae


    In early spring, this rarely-offered plant opens its large white to lilac flowers which have a purple spot at the base of each petal. Seed for this plant was originally collected in The USA on Figueroa Mountain in Santa Barbara county. It is also found in grassy places near the coast from southern California to Baja. ...

  6. Dahlia autumn dazzlers


    New! Dahlia australis, the true species, is a magnificent plant, with demurely nodding pink to lilac flowers, (which are bigger than the similar D. merckii, which is less vigorous and of smaller stature.) Sadly, we have found that it can be difficult to keep year on year. But one day, we discovered that the busy bees at Plant World gardens had pollinated a Dahlia australis plant with pollen from other lovely dahlia cultivars in our gardens. And what an amazing surprise we received when this handful of seeds germinated and finally flowered! A completely new generation of tall but elegant dahlias with numerous branching spindly stems, offering months of a complete spectrum of vibrant colour with surprisingly little effort. These will flower their heads off in virtually any sunny spot, until the first frosts cut them down. Almost constant-flowering, these lovely single flower forms, with the occasional dark-leafed specimen, make solid, stately, almost shrubby plants, which are very easy to integrate into the average garden border, and appear to be quite hardy, having survived for ten years outside untouched by winter. Not prolific seed producers but worth any trouble to grow. ... Learn More


  7. Echium fastuosum alba edited ray edition


    Yet another valuable variant in the lovely echium series. Just a single plant from several hundred had pure white stems, and thus we suspected white flowers. And so it turned out. This is the first time we have managed to grow and collect seeds from a white form of this perennial, shrubby, bush-forming plant, which forms a solid compact dome when mature, when it can be smothered with a hundred or more swollen trusses of flowers. This really is a perennial in a sheltered situation in a warm garden, or even in a very large pot. In The Scilly Islands and the South West of the UK, and even in our hill-top gardens here, this plant makes a sizeable, long-lived evergreen shrub. Occasionally a plant may produce flower spikes that open with a slight pinkish or pale blue tinge. ... Learn More


  8. Gloriosa carsonii


    This very rare, beautiful, slender, tuberous climber opens exquisite, exotic flowers, which are chocolate purple edged in lemon yellow, solitary, on long pedicels in leaf axils and usually angled downward with swept-back petals. It is happy either in containers or in warm soil, and is guaranteed to provoke a good amount of attention. It does needs support for the leaf tendrils to cling to and the planting medium should be freely draining, although these gems are tolerant of nutritionally poor soils. When trained into a compact form, it produces a magnificent display and is an exceptional conservatory plant! ... Learn More


  9. Goji berries black large


    Yet another exclusive NEW release by Plant World! Even larger, BLACK Goji Berries!! These plants have been selected to give much larger fruits than the normal black variety. Jealously guarded for many years in a small area of China, these compact, long-lived bushes bear heavy, hanging branches dripping with clusters of plump, juicy, sweet black fruits, the size of small grapes. These are bursting with vitamins and minerals, and are produced all summer long, right up to the first frosts. These easy-to-grow, drought-tolerant plants will grow in any soil, are hardy down to -15c, and can produce 1-2kg of fruit when only 2 years old! These have now been acknowledged as one of the main so-called 'super fruits', a marketing term for fruits which combines exceptional nutrient richness and antioxidant with a pleasant taste. This amazing new fruit is claimed to be even healthier than the common red one on account of the purple pigment that contains flavonoids, including reservatrol, and anthocyanins which have been shown to keep blood pressure in control and boost immunity from certain tumuors. Recent discoveries have shown undeniably that the top benefactor in purple foods is their antioxidant content, the powerful health benefits of which are only too well known, as they neutralize the agents of ageing and disease, and keep you looking younger longer. They also improve heart health, vision, and brain power. Recent studies found that adults who eat purple and blue fruits and vegetables have reduced risk for both high blood pressure and low HDL cholesterol (the “good” kind) and finally these people are also less likely to be overweight, so slimmers take note! ...

  10. Hemerocallis middendorffii


    From May until July, chocolate-brown tipped buds open early into marigold-orange flowers, above a low growing clump whose narrow, grassy-green blades look ornamental even on their own. With a delightfully fragrant performance in the garden, or even picked, the six-petalled blooms are held in dense clusters by blunt, cupped bracts. This beauty thrives in dry conditions once established. ... Learn More


  11. Hesperantha cucullata group


    In spring, as a rule, three to eight starry white flowers per spike, all with a brown or red reverse, open in late afternoon or evening, with a delicious perfume of jasmine or frangipani. The perfume persists right throughout the night until next morning. Very much resembling a dwarf "schizostylis", this rare and beautiful flower is found on sandy and shale slopes in the western Karoo and the northwest Cape from the BokkeveldPlateau to the Biedouw valley. In cultivation a sunny, free draining situation suits best. ... Learn More


  12. Iris chrysographes  black knight


    This gorgeous black flowered clone is one of the very darkest irises grown, although the flower colour is in fact a very deep violet that appears black, the falls having an exquisitely delicate golden tracery of veins near the centre. This solid clump-forming, rhizomatous perennial has upright, strap-like, grey-green leaves, and is truly one of the nearest flower colours to black it is possible to grow although seedlings may vary. ...

  13. Mandragora officinarum


    Although the rare "Mandrake" was once considered an aphrodisiac, all parts of it, especially the large, yellow, tomato-like fruits which follow the brown and yellow flowers, must be treated as poisonous. There are two forms or species, this one which flowers in the spring, and the other Mandragorum autumnalis in the autumn. A large number of halucinogenic and pharmaceutical chemicals are derived from this ancient plant, and although many flowers open, very few ever produce any viable fruits at all, hence the regrettably high price. Traditionally, a dog pulled up the man-like roots and their scream reputedly killed all who heard it! ... Learn More


  14. Paeonia veitchii


    One of the most common Chinese woodland Peony varieties. It is one of the few species that will bloom and thrive in full shade as well as sun. Dissected ferny foliage under single pink flowers make this a valuable and beautiful edition to any garden. These appear slightly later in spring that some other varieties but they are worth waiting for! ... Learn More


  15. Penstemon multiflorus


    Two-lipped, ivory-white flowers with protruding and contrasting black anthers open from June to September. This drought-tolerant plant attracts butterflies and bees and is perfect for a hot garden or a rocky or sandy very well-drained spot. Few seeds. ... Learn More
