We use shrubs as a backbone to our mixed borders where they provide a permanent framework and some shelter in our exposed hillside garden. Generous planting bays are left for our herbaceous plants. The shrubs are chosen for their evergreen leaves, attractive foliage in a variety of colours or for their long season of flowering.

Ornamental Grasses

We have an extensive list of grasses suitable for all conditions. We grow many varieties in a terraced grass garden which allows the contrasting forms, habits, heights and leaf colours to be appreciated. Grasses are also incorporated into borders, mixed with other plants where they provide a contrast of form and texture: for example the broad, strappy leaves of Luzula sylvatica contrasting with ferns and the lacey foliage of Dicentra.

Bamboos are really part of the grass family but I have listed them separately as they have a unique character of their own. Their tropical appearance makes them ideal subjects for hardy exotic planting schemes. They produce woody canes, some of them reaching 6 metres in height and many of which are attractively coloured and marked. The leaves are grassy, in all shades of green, some with attractive variegation. Some varieties are available in limited quantities. If travelling a long distance for a particular variety please telephone first to confirm availablilty. Note that the smaller pot sizes only are available mail order unless by special arrangement.

Ferns are ideal plants for moist shady positions, many having evergreen fronds that provide structure in the winter garden. The diversity and patterning of the fronds is quite diverse as is the height range. Please note that some ferns are available in limited quantities.
