Did You Know?

We grow and keep the majority of our plants outside on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands, over 650 feet above sea level ensuring a hardy plant that starts off well when planted in your garden.

Some leaves on evergreen plants can be damaged in winter but in spring, new leaves will readily replace those damaged. This is quite normal on many evergreen varieties and is preferable to plants grown with excessive protection that show cold shock once planted out and establish less satisfactorily initially.

Many perennials go ‘dormant’ which, in some cases, means that there is little or no top growth apparent between November and March. If you order perennials whilst they are dormant, they may not be visible above the soil level when purchased but will burst into life in spring.

Platycladus (Thuja) orientalis 'Aurea Nana' (2-3 litre pot, 25-30cm high)

This is a fantastically coloured, slow growing evergreen conifer with a dense, conical to columnar growth habit. Dense sprays of yellow-green foliage become an intense shade of vibrant yellow in the summer, before taking on a bronze tinge in the winter.

Its extremely slow growth rate of between 3 and 5cm of new growth per year makes it ideal for incorporating into the rockery or heather garden. It can also be grown as a slow-growing, ornamental evergreen hedge but must be sited in locations sheltered from strong winds. Platycladus comes from Greek words meaning broad (platys) and branch (klados) in reference to its vertical plane branching configuration.

Delivery can only be made to addresses where clear access can be gained (e.g. pallets of plants cannot be delivered to upper floor flats or premises where restricted access does not allow delivery vehicles).

We reserve the right to send out your order on a pallet if it is a significant volume of items or weight above our standard carriers limits. We can only ship items on a pallet up to 2 metres tall, if the plants you have ordered are above this then where applicable will be cut to the required height.
