a small and very individual nursery. Whilst enjoying all plants, I have over the years refined the stock to reflect my own horticultural passions and specialities. Whilst not particulally rare, many of the plants I stock are not easily found because they may be difficult to produce on a large commercial scale, or because they are just not fashionable any more. I love the challenge of finding just the right plant, or collection of plants, for a supposedly 'difficult' site and will always offer honest and impartial advice.
I offer a good range of reliable herbacious perennialsfor most soils, including alkaline but not a lot for acid. All varieties are trialed here on my exposed Somerset site to ensure hardiness.
All my stock is grown in peat-free, loam-based compost, outside and not brought on undercover, thus ensuring a hardy plant and a good start when planted in your garden.
Veg plants are usually available at specific open days in spring and I specialise in unusual varieties, particularly tomatoes, with up to 20 different varieties available.
For scent and colour a fine old-fashioned rose is hard to beat. I offer a personal selection of charming hardy roses, selected to prove that old roses do flower all summer and do not succumb to every disease in the book! They are also ideal for growing in less than perfect soil and shady sites.
