We use peat free compost for plants grown on our nursery. We propagate and grow most of the plants we sell on our production nursery which is next to our retail area and gardens. Where possible the mature specimens on display and growing in our woodland garden here in Derbyshire supply our propagation materials for grafting, cuttings, seed, etc.
The current approx supplied sizes of our plants is listed on each plant description. Although we do our best to be accurate please bear in mind that sizes of plants on our website can vary both in height and pot size from those listed on our website. They may be smaller or larger than listed on our website!
If you wish to know the exact current size of a particular plant or have a minimum size requirement, please email us to double check before making an order. Herbaceous perennials are usually cut back on our nursery once they finish flowering.
Our website photos usually show mature specimens of the plants we sell. Young plants may take some years to develop and look similar!
We have always had most success ourselves when planting in our gardens with young plants that are not to mature. They generally can adapt to new conditions more quickly and the supplied sizes on our website reflects this. We do not grow many large and 'instant' specimen trees and those we have are available to view only when visiting our nursery.
Plants marked as 'New' on our website have been newly listed within the last year.
