The tradition of growing bedding plants continues in our greenhouses where our dedicated Volunteers grow a comprehensive selection of seasonal bedding, available to the public all year round. With summer bedding, gown in packs, pots, containers and baskets. Nothing quite matches the colour and splendour of bedding in full bloom.


Herbaceous Perennials:

The sustainable choice for foliage and flowers, herbaceous perennials come back every year, in an array of textures and colours, hights and habits. Ideal for containers and borders and with varieties that grow in shade to full sun, their flowers are often perfect for pollinators, providing a source of nectar for wildlife.
