Welcome to our catalogue of plants for 2013-2014 and to our on-line store. This year, for the first time, we are issuing a completely new catalogue in the spring, so that it is as up-to-date as possible for the show season. It will be updated from time to time, as new stock becomes available.
Once again we have a huge number of plants, drawn from all over the world. Many of them are completely new, but there are some old favourites, and others that have returned after an absence. We grow very many of these plants in our own garden, and hope that you will want to try them in yours.
There is a minimum order of £25 worth of plants, but we give a free plant to all whose order is more than £40.
In all forms of our catalogues, plants associated with the great plant collector George Forrest are indicated F.
How to browse and buy our plants

The on-line store
You will find lots of information and pictures, and can search for what is of interest to you in many different ways. You can then order and pay for them directly - but if you prefer, you can still order them by completing an order form and emailing or posting it.
Our traditional style of web catalogue
This is still there, for those who are not comfortable with on-line shopping. You can read the same information and see the same pictures as in the on-line shop. You can order the plants using an order form, emailed or posted to us.
plants are indicated - more than 500 of them! (For this purpose 'new' means plants that were not in last year's catalogue when it was first issued.)
Brief descriptions are given in the list of plants. Click on the name of the plant for a fuller description and, in many cases, photographs, as well as information about related plants.
Go straight to the main plant list. (It is a big catalogue, so it may take a few seconds to load!)
Use our plant selector
To find plants for particular situations, you can select for the type of plant (alpine, bulb, herbaceous etc.), for the site (shady, sunny ...) and for the soil conditions.
A new printed version of the catalogue has been produced. Our printed catalogues do not include some plants that are available only in small numbers, although these are listed in the on-line versions of the catalogue.
You can print a catalogue yourself.
You can download the current list of plants as a pdf document (42 pages, 671 kbytes).
