Did You Know?

Maples make fantastic specimen trees in your garden, as well as adding great Autumn colour. Plant them in an area where they are protected by strong winds as to prevent the leaves burning. Maples will be sent out bare rooted –all in late May early June.
Hydrangeas and winter sweet both make great cut flowers, and hydrangeas can be dried.
The ‘flowers’ on the Cornus are actually bracts, it’s the small middle bit that is the true flower. These flowers start yellow, fading to a creamy white in early Summer. The fruits then form in early Autumn.
Make a statement by planting Black Mondo grass with white tulips and lilies. These plants all come in 7cm tubes.



Large florets this hydrangea makes a lovely plant for the border.
