  1. Syringa wolfii
    New

    SYRINGA WOLFII

    One of the most very beautiful of all of the twenty species of lilac, this variety bears arching panicles of scented, lilac-mauve flowers in early to mid summer which are particularly large, broad, multi-stemmed and very strongly fragrant. These are exceptional as they can also vary from white to various shades of violet and purple-red, with even bi-coloured shrubs occuring. The individual flowers are horn-shaped, with four petals, each one attractively pointed. It blooms about two week after the common lilac (S. vulgaris), two species coming from Europe, the remainder mainly from eastern Asia where it grows naturally in Manchuria, Korea and the Russian Far East in the rocky mountain shrub layer, often in forests and river valleys. Despite its beauty, it has remained largely unknown in the West, but we have procured some valuable fresh seeds. ... Learn More

    TAGETES PATULA LINNAEUS

    Many-petalled flowers of a rich brown-red, each with a fine gold edge to every petal, make a real feature in your garden. Flowering all summer, if you take the faded flowers off regularly it enjoys full sun and carries a very strong musky scent that is attractive to humans but not to insects! Plant it in window boxes to keep the flies away in the summer months, or as a companion plant to protect your veg. We are sorry but we have very few seeds of this variety. ... Learn More

  6. Tithonia diversifolia
    New

    TITHONIA DIVERSIFOLIA

    Golden-eyed yellow flowers open amongst attractive, densely-packed, silver-backed, vine-like, foliage. Originally found in Mexico, this unusual plant can be grown as either an annual or a perennial when it will become almost shrub-like. Its main claim to fame though is its astonishing ability to make the soil more fertile, and it is often grown entirely for this purpose. Incredibly, just to recap on your school chemistry, when used as an environmentally and ecologically sound fertilizer, it contains 1.76% Nitrogen, 0.82% Phosphorus, and 3.92% Potassium. By comparison, all three properties are lower than this in cattle manure, whilst Phosphorus is higher than in poultry and pig manure. ... Learn More

  7. Tragopogon pratensis
    New

    TRAGOPOGON PRATENSIS

    This novel and fascinating plant has bright yellow flowers which open in the morning before suddenly closing at midday, hence its common name of "Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon". But then the surprise happens! The previous day's enormous and impressive, apple-sized, "dandelion clock" opens with large radiating seeds, from huge ripe buds. It can self-seed if happy, but only in a small way. ... Learn More

  8. Capsicum pubescens
    New

    TREE PEPPER

    The rare true species of Capsicum Pubescens is quite different from all other domesticated species of peppers, and indeed is the least cultivated and least widespread of them all. Readily identified by their black seeds and hairy leaves (pubescens means hairy), all of the various forms of this species have a distinctive flavour and heat that is different from all other peppers. Some of the cultivars are even hotter than the habanero! A valuable and quite significant trait of this species is its ability to withstand and even thrive in temperatures that are lower than the temperatures other pepper plants can handle. Although it takes a longer than normal time to mature, the plants grow huge, and in addition they are tough, resistant to diseases, infections and pests, and can tolerate cold more than other varieties. Visually they are one of the most stunning of chillies, resembling, even in size, red or yellow apples. Be prepared to let the plants grow to their full size, which can be 2m across and 1.5m high. In regions with mild winters, grown in the ground, they will live for many years, finally forming large shrubby bushes or small trees! The hairy leaves and stems are a deterrent to slugs and snails so it is resistant to pests, and it is completely unique in that it will not hybridise with other peppers. It is native to Bolivia and Peru and dates back to pre-Incan times. ... Learn More

  11. Vitex agnus castus pink icing
    New

    VITEX AGNUS CASTUS 'PINK ICING'

    This is a rare variant of the normally blue-flowered shrub, one plant of which was discovered on the Greek island of Kos. Strong branches bear fragrant leaves, almost exactly identical to those of cannabis plants, which terminate in most attractive clusters of fragrant, pinkish-mauve flowers. It is also called Chaste Tree, Chasteberry, Abraham's Balm or Monk's Pepper, as it was once used to flavour stews in monasteries, (not recommended for honeymooners). It is a native of the Mediterranean region and although hardy here on the UK south coast in Devon, it may need shelter elsewhere. It is one of the few temperate-zone species of Vitex, which is generally a genus of tropical and sub-tropical flowering plants. ... Learn More

  13. Xanthoceras sorbifolium
    New

    XANTHOCERAS SORBIFOLIUM

    A magnificent, rare, choice, amazing, and extremely beautiful tree with gorgeous upright panicles of large white flowers with a dazzling deep red centre in late spring. Although it is completely unrelated, the attractive shiny leaves are similar in appearance to those of the common Mountain Ash. In a warm position it will produce large sized, walnut-like fruit that contain edible, cherry-sized seeds resembling small chestnuts. It was described by Joseph Hooker (Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew from 1865-1885) in 1887 as 'one of the most attractive and interesting hardy garden shrubs that has been introduced for many years'. It is native to northern China in the provinces of Gansu, Hebei, Henan, Liaoning, Nei Monggol, Ningxia, Shaanxi, and was originally collected near Beijing in about 1830 by the botanist Alexander von Bunge. A monotypic plant, it is the only species in the genus Xanthoceras. Fresh seeds very rarely obtainable. ... Learn More

    Absolutely stunning, creamy-white orchid-like flowers have a showy, patterned lip, heavily pencilled in deepest red. These open on strong stems bearing attractive, banana-like leaves, in mid to late summer, and later appear the attractive bright red seed capsules which persist for a long time before the stem finally dies away in winter leaving a rhizome deep underground. ...
