Latest Plant Highlights
Take a look at some of our recent arrivals in the plant area - lots more still to come in, we get deliveries from a range of UK and European growers.
Our range and variety of stock changes from week to week depending on the season and what's looking good. Most deliveries come into us towards the end of the week so the weekends are a great time to visit and see the freshest stock.
Spring sees new arrivals in the form of larger specimen plants from our supplier in Italy, along with the new season perennial and cottage garden plants. As we move into summer, the range focuses on patio plants and bedding sourced mainly from local growers just a few miles away from Lichfield.
Autumn is a great time to plant new fruit trees and also ornamental trees - the soil is still moist and the temperatures milder, so plants get established much more quickly. Spring Bulbs are also available from mid-August onwards. Then as we head into winter, Roses for the following season arrive, along with bare root hedging plants and other winter flowering shrubs.
Its always worth coming to see us every few months and find something different on each visit!
