Rosa 'Rhapsody in Blue'

Rosa 'Rhapsody in Blue'

Shrub Rose, Floribunda

Price: £12.95

Sweetly scented and still the closest breeders have come to a truly 'Blue' rose. Winner 'Rose of the Year' 2003. Large, cupped, semi-double blooms June - Sept. Forms a tall, bushy shrub to approx 75cm tall (3ft). Our roses are grown in an open field and then dug up when the weather conditions are right in October or November. Some suppliers send out their roses as 'bare root' plants (i.e. without pots or compost), but we pot ours up as it helps to keep the roots hydrated and in good condition. As they are dormant throughout the winter, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when you take them out of their pots. The roses can be kept in their pots throughout the winter provided they are kept watered, however ideally they should planted out as soon as possible. This makes our roses an excellent choice for gifts as there is no pressing need to plant right away. Read More...

Sticky Catchfly

Sticky Catchfly

Lychnis viscaria

Price: £4.95

The destruction of this plants habitats has meant that it is now rarely found growing wild in this country and is limited to parts of North Wales and Scotland. Similar to Red Campion but, more delicate in appearance, more florific and less invasive. Bright rosy-purple whorls of flowers on stiff, upright stems above a neat basal rosette of leaves create a haze of colour in a meadow or when planted amongst other perennials towards the front of a border. The fllowering stems of this plant are sticky towards the top, hence its common name. Sticky Catchfly grows wild on cliffs and dry grasslands and would be perfect for naturalising in a coastal garden or on a rockery. Catchflies thrive in most well-drained garden soils in sun or part shade and will tolerate acid conditions. As if the pretty pink flowers and the desire to protect the species weren't reason enough to give this plant house-room, Sticky Catchfly is said to increase the disease resistance of surrounding plants and contains high amounts of brassinosteroids which have been proven to have a positive effect on the growth of nearby plants and are often used in fertilisers. Loved by butterflies and long-tongued bees. Fully hardy.   Read More...

Tansy

Tanacetum vulgare

White Campion

White Campion

Silene latifolia subsp. alba

Price: £4.95

Richly scented white flowers in loose clusters open in the afternoon and at night to attract pollinating moths from May - October. An erect native, hairy perennial of roadsides and wasteland that is perfect for naturalising in a meadow or planted in large clumps in a 'wild' cottage border. If planted with Red Campion, it will hybridise to produce Pink Campion. Its impressively long flowering period and delicious light scent make this a must-have for any wildflower garden. A short-lived perennial, living for only a few years but they will self-seed quite readily if allowed so this is not a problem. Dead-heading will prevent this. Happy in any soil in any situation in sun or part shade. Doesn't mind mowing once established. Read More...

Wild Foxglove

Wild Foxglove

Digitalis purpurea

Flowers from June - September. Fabulous planted in large clumps. Read More...

Wild Strawberry

Wild Strawberry

Fragaria vesca

Price: £2.50

The tiny scarlet fruits of the Wild Strawberry, which appear from May-July, have a far superior flavour to any other strawberry as though being small has somehow concentrated the stawberryness! They are excellent for decorating summer desserts and cakes and I always sprinkle a few in the champagne for summer barbecues. I always grow a few extra as they are brilliant for children, who will graze happily on them all day, keeping them away from my more valuable main crop! They are a plant of open woods and sunny banks in the wild and are extremely hardy. Give them a little bit of sun and a bit of room to spread about. Alternatively, why not try growing in a pot for easier picking! Read More...

Yellow Pimpernel

Yellow Pimpernel

Lysimachia nemorum

Price: £3.00

A cousin of the more well known annual, Scarlet Pimpernel, this hardy perennial is an absolute gem for growing on heavy clay soil in shade. Its bright yellow star-like flowers track the sun across the sky and bring a glimmer of sunshine to that tricky part of the garden where nothing will grow. An incredibly long flowering period ( May - September ) and its leafy evergreen, mat-forming habit, make this an excellent ground-cover choice. And proves, in our book, that small really can be beautiful. Incredibly easygoing and trouble-free. Dislikes too much lime. Read More...
