• in stunning garden plantings
    which we would be pleased to design for you.

Bulbs can be pre-ordered in season from our online catalogues:
• from February for summer flowering bulbs
   to plant in the Spring;
• from July for spring flowering bulbs
   to plant in the Autumn.

Plant of the Month

Ypsilandra thibetica,
a perfect plant for damp shade, but 
we find it can thrive in the dry too. Flowers are beautifully scented,
starting white and fading to light pink. 

AWARDS - Chelsea Flower Show Gold medallists 2013-2019 & 2022 & 2023;  Farrer Trophy for best Alpine display at an RHS show 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2022;  President's Award for our display at Chelsea Flower Show 2023

Our catalogue is continuously updated and includes many rare and unusual plants we are introducing or re-introducing this year.

We offer plants for your rock garden, woodland or damp area, as well as a selection of herbaceous plants, and trees & shrubs.  We have ground cover plants and some that cope in dry shade, as well as many that are easy to grow.  
You can take a look at our specialities.  We have also put together some collections of plants that we display together at the shows.

Some are only available in small numbers, so you may need to be quick.

If you would like advice as to what might look good in a particular area of your garden, we are very happy to make suggestions. Are you building a rockery, developing a pond, or revamping the herbaceous border?  Do contact us for advice.


We offer an exceptionally wide range of bulbs to pre-order in season, (January to March and July to September).  We publish two bulb catalogues online each year:
• In July for Spring (& Autumn) flowering bulbs to plant in the Autumn;
• In February for Summer flowering bulbs (& dormant plants) to plant in the Spring.

We also offer a specialist bulb list of rare Spring and Autumn bulbs.

Our bulbs are delivered to you fresh, avoiding lengthy storage in warm premises. 
In addition there are some bulbs listed in our main catalogue, which are planted and growing in pots.  These can be bought at any time of the year.


Transform your garden with skilful design and inspired planting plans. We specialise in rock gardens, stream sides and woodlands, creating fabulous planting lists to give colour all through the year. 
We work very closely with clients, helping them to develop their own ideas, to create the garden that they want.
Recently we have been involved in a number of exciting historic rock garden restorations.

We also create whole gardens, working with landscape architects and garden designers.

It was a pleasure to participate in the first Scone Garden Fair, which took place on the lawn outside Scone Palace at the beginning of June.  We can highly recommend this as a day out, with a wonderful range of plants available in a stunning setting.
