We had a great few days at Harrogate flower show this past weekend. There were some stunning displays and we even had some sun! We worked hard to get our display up for judging and then admired the rest of displays on show.

It was a big change of display for us at the RHS Cardiff Flower Show, we had a go at educational (not like being at school we hope) with of few fun elements. Lots of useful information for all our customers and the public at the show about Heuchera, Heucherella & Tiarella.

When we arrived we had a lot of setting up to do!

We based our display around the most asked questions and to help demonstrate all the answers we have given over the years

We hope this means everyone will be able to grow great Heuchera Heucherella & Tiarella they are incredibly easy really.

We had canvases made for the show and were really pleased at how they came out.

We were judged in a different category than normal…we put together the educational display to achieve a Lindley medal which was bit scary and unknown territory!! We were very proud and surprised to find out that we had gotten a Gold medal in the Floral Marquee awards. Not bad for our first go! 

Thanks to everyone who came out, stopped by our display, and said hi at the event.

Our nursery is full of gorgeous new flowers, here are some ideas to brighten up your flower bed!

Podophyllum ‘Spotty Dotty’

In the spring, as Podophyllum ‘Spotty Dotty’ grows the leaves push up through the soil like closed umbrellas and open out as they emerge. Green base with brown-red spotted marking through to autumn. Bright crimson-red flowers are star shaped and hang beneath the leaves. Shop Podophyllum ‘Spotty Dotty’ here.

Heuchera great for easy to care for gardens

Assorted Heuchera

Heucheras are great for easy care gardens, and come in such a great variety of colours and shapes.

Heuchera ‘Phoebe’s blush’

Our Heuchera ‘Phoebe’s blush’ is named after my Granny Phoebe. This gorgeous plant is really pink in spring on the new foliage and changes through dusky pink, pale green, vanilla and all with a pink blush underside. It also has beautiful pink flowers. Shop Heuchera ‘Phoebe’s blush’ here.

Make sure you share any photos of any plants you get from us on our Facebook page so that we can see their new homes and your gorgeous gardens.

Happy gardening!
