Growing for the Spring and Summer

Growing our own plants

We grow a number of plants in small quantities to use in our clients gardens (and our own too!).  Mainly we grow varieties that are difficult to get from suppliers or that you can only get at certain times of the year.  This means that we can plant them as part of a project even if they are not in season

We also buy and pot up plants that are only available at certain times (e.g. Snowdrops) so that we can include them in clients planting schemes any time during the year.  We do this as part of our Planting Projects as well as part of our Seasonal Maintenance Services

Book Review – The Plantfinder’s Guide to Early Bulbs

It’s at this time of year that you long for some flowers in the garden.  As spring approaches everyone looks for the first snowdrop or crocus, followed by the daffodils – especially here in Wales.

We love bulbs and try to plant some with every project – they’re great value for money and low maintenance.

If you’re looking for inspiration for bulbs then you should take a look at The Plantfinder’s Guide to Early Bulbs by Rod Leeds.  Rod is one of the UK’s leading  experts on Alpines and Bulbs and the book provides many unusual early flowering bulb suggestions.  Lovely photography inspires and full information on each cultivar as well as planting and care information helps you decide what would be good for your garden
