  1. Erysimum jumbo orange


    This new gem from our ongoing breeding programme possesses a full hand of aces! The seeds, collected individually as they ripen, should produce unique, enormous, hardy perennial plants which make strong stout stems, almost trunks, in their second year. Plant them out as small plants, they will not thrive in a small pot, and it is essential they are given room to grow unhindered in an open position, when they will spread out into a solid dome of branches clad in evergreen leaves. In the following late winter to early spring, (and ours flower earlier than all other perennial erysimums we grow,) they will produce an amazing, long-lasting display of fragrant flowers. They are predominantly orange, deeper-veined in red, but you will invariably discover plants with other colour shades. One of the distant parents was 'Erysimum Bowles' Mauve', but this new strain is far more vigorous, and being seedlings they are virus-free. ... Learn More


  2. Erythrina corallodendron


    Beautiful multi-petalled coral pink flowers are followed by attractive jet black seeds, amongst delicate green pinnate leaves. This small, highly-ornamental sub-tropical tree can be also grown as a shrub in warmer countries, and can make a superb container plant for a conservatory or summer bedding out elsewhere. Very few seeds available. ... Learn More


  3. Eucalyptus globulus


    Native to Australia (where currently the largest known specimen is not far short of 300 ft tall), this attractive gum, with attractive fluffy, lemon-coloured flowers, will make a handsome statement in a large garden. It is very fast-growing but very easy to keep in check by pruning, and the young foliage of this Eucalyptus is beloved of flower arrangers everywhere, so if you want to keep your specimen small feel free to pollard away! ...

  4. Ficus altissima


    This sizeable evergreen tree has a buttressed trunk and a spreading crown, and bark that is smooth and grey, with small pale brown pustules. The attractive clusters of orange-red fruits are officially described as edible, but they are hard and not palatable and are usually grown for their ornamental effect. The large leaves, a little like the rubber plant, have wonderfully pale green veins that show up beautifully against the emerald green of the leaves. This particular ficus is a beautiful addition to any home and makes an excellent container plant. ... Learn More


  5. Ficus auriculata


    An unusually small tree in the wild, it has disproportionately large leaves, hence one of its common names, which start intensely red, and turn more and more green when reaching their ultimate size of up to 50 cm length. Its edible fruits, which ripen both on branches and the trunk, are used to make jams, juices and curries in India, whilst in Vietnam, unripe fruits are also used in salads. It also provides various traditional medicinal uses, and its large strong leaves are often used as plates! The tree is cultivated in India and from Myanmar to Vietnam and SW China and Brazil. ...

  6. Noimage


    This large-leaved, almost frost-hardy evergreen shrub bears large clusters of attractive rose-purple flowers followed by bunches of dark purple fruit. In a sheltered spot it makes an incredibly attractive specimen, flowering throughout the year if kept warm and dryish. Although botanically a fuchsia, and looking more like a lilac, its identity often puzzles people who admire it! ... Learn More


  7. Noimage


    A superb collection of all of our geranium pratense forms. Colours range from pure white, through pinks and pale blues to deep blue. Also included are some coloured-foliage forms which vary from dark to paler foliage. ... Learn More


  8. Noimage


    This truly exceptional plant suddenly appeared in our trial ground and appears to be a hybrid. But of which plants we cannot discover, although we suspect Geum calthifolium may be one parent! Nonetheless it appears to come true from seed, producing extremely vigorous plants with tall, strong-stems clad in thick leathery leaves, above which open numerous large golden buttercups. If well-fed could be a monster. ... Learn More


  9. Gliricidia sepium


    This medium-sized shrub or small tree produces a generous quantity of flowers, its arching branches often being weighed down by the densely packed racemes of fragrant, nectar-rich pink blossoms. With a medium-sized, open crown it is particularly valued for its use as a shade and support tree, as a producer of green manure and forage crop in plantations, and when cropped down is even established as living fences. It is deciduous, but may be evergreen and flower sporadically through the year in areas with rain all year round. A very valuable multipurpose tree and important component of various agroforestry systems, it is often cultivated in many tropical countries of Central and South America, S and SE Asia, the Pacific islands and Africa where it serves as a pioneer species to establish new sites. ...

  10. Gomphrena haageana strawberry fields


    Large numbers of red spherical flowerheads contrast against the bright-green narrow lance-shaped leaves, making a most eye-catching display that is bound to draw comment. An attractive perennial plant, it can also successfully be treated as an annual and used to bulk out displays in containers or at the border edge. ... Learn More


  11. Hedychium rubrum


    It would appear that this cold-hardy, early-flowering Butterfly Ginger is one of the rarest plants we offer, as it was discovered and first introduced by American company Gingerwood Nursery after many fruitless years attempting to find it. Sizeable, true-red flowers open from red bracts atop strong stems bearing short, beautiful foliage. Although it resembles Hedychium greenii and was thought to be closely related, genetic research has shown they aren’t closely related. It does best in a bright shade to medium sun area. ... Learn More


  12. Hedychium stenopetalum


    Snow-white, exceedingly fragrant flowers have a faint greenish-yellow tint to the base, and prominent white or off-white stamens. This rarely-offered Indian native, with big, bold, banana-like leaves, is very easy to grow from seed, and is one of the very tallest of all Hedychium species growing anything up to ten feet (3m) or so tall. Superb for a large garden in a warm climate, or a warm sheltered garden or even a large container elsewhere. ... Learn More


  13. Helleborus kaleidescope


    A generous packet of this exciting mix of Helleborus hybrids and H. x hybridus in a wide range of colours and forms including anemone centred and some double flowered varieties. Colours range from white through yellow to red, purple and black. There are some real little treasures hidden away in here, so off you sow and see what surprises are in store. ... Learn More


  14. Hesperaloe parviflora


    Bright airy sprays of countless, delicate, pinkish-red flowers open on long thin stems which erupt from compact sprays of narrow, arching, bluish, evergreen leaves, which often acquire an attractive reddish tinge in response to cold. It will make a fabulous and very rarely-seen addition to a warm, well-drained rockery or hot garden. Very few seeds available . ... Learn More


  15. Hibiscus acetosella


    Deep crimson to purple flowers with darker striped petals and dark eyes, open on stems clad in dissected foliage which is very reminiscent of Japanese maple leaves. These are at least as attractive as the flowers, and can vary from dark bronze to deepest purple, and this is the one hibiscus that is grown for its beautiful foliage as well as for the flowers! The fast growing and shrubby habit of this unusual plant makes it a good choice for a seasonal hedge, an attractive annual specimen plant, or even an indoor container plant. Very few seeds obtainable. ... Learn More
