1) Using our New Website!
Although we have done our best to keep the layout of our new website as similar to the old one as possible, there are some differences. Please see below:
Browsing with the A - Z Plant List - Click on (or hold the mouse over) the category at the top of the page (for example trees and shrubs). If you know the name of the plant you are after, click on the botanical (Latin) name of the plant you are looking for in the list (displayed on the left side of the page once in category) to bring up the plants in this group.
Refining Plant List - If you are looking for plant ideas to fill a particular garden position, pick a category as described above and choose from the lists of active filters on the left side of the page. Once you have made your selection, please click 'Search'.
The number of filters will be increased gradually over time. It allows you to narrow down the displayed plants to find one which will suit your requirements. Please be aware that this plant finder function will only list plants currently in stock and available for sale!
Using our Website Search Function - Type in a Latin or common name at the top of the page to search through the database for that particular plant. The search function will display all plants with names or descriptions that contain any of the searched for words. For the most accurate results, use single word searches for example: looking for Giant Redwood - search for redwood, Beech trees - search for Beech, etc.
Quick View - When looking at multiple plants on the page, to view a brief description of a particular plant, hold the mouse over the plant photo until the quick view icon appears and click on it. Clicking anywhere else will bring up the full description.
