Growers of trees, shrubs and hardy herbaceous perennial garden plants near Newport, Shropshire


It’s been a corking year for blossom; most of the trees on the nursery, and in the neighbourhood, have been weighed down with the stuff. And even the Acers, never grown for their flowers, have had a go:

When most of their neighbours are weighed down with frothy pinks and whites, it’s nice to be able to rest our eyes on the altogether more subtle charms of Acer platanoides ‘Crimson King’ AGM

Tiny, but delightful! And enough of them this year to be a genuine spectacle.

And it’s not just the trees – all our plants are looking lovely! It’s an early season,and the exuberance and enthusiasm that we normally see in May seems to be here already.
