RHS Tatton Park 2017

We always love coming to RHS Tatton Park flower show as it’s not that far away from our nursery, and it’s in a really lovely setting. We always love seeing the difference between blank spaces filling up with scaffolding, stands and what not ready for nurseries to transform them into show displays. So here’s a few before photos and our finished display.

We’ve got a little break now to sort out mail orders, clean up our plants in the nursery, and make sure everything is in top shape.

It’s hard to believe there’s only a few shows left for this year! Coming up we have Southport Flower show the 17th-20th August, Wisley Autumn show 5th-10th of September, Harrogate Autumn show 15th-17th of September, and Malvern Autumn show the 23rd-24th September. The fall shows are great to add some brightly coloured autumnal plants to your garden.

We then have our last nursery open days 29th September-1st October where you can come stock up on plants, have a chat about all things gardening, and enjoy some delicious homemade cakes.

We look forward to seeing some of you the next couple of months!

RHS Hampton Court Palace 2017

We had some gorgeous weather this year at RHS Hampton Court Palace. The atmosphere was buzzing and we had some great laughs with friends.

Here’s some photos of setting up, our display, and a few from around the grounds as well.

A healthy lunch in between planting!

We got another gold to add to our growing collection, always nice to see all the stress and hard work paying off!

I was on the potting bench posters dotted about the grounds, which I was on most days, only missing one out. These are great to go to at the shows as lots of industry experts talk about how to get the best out of your plants and potting tips and tricks.

We did ask customers and other exhibitors to join us!

As usual there were some stunning creative art installations and show gardens. Have a look at out Facebook page to see even more photos from the show. We always put them up as we go along, as long as time permits of course!

Choice of heuchera

This question was asked by
mrs jean graham

My brother has had numerous heuchera from you. I would like 2 heucheras to grow in a tub {not big tub} -this would be south facing. Also 2 heuchera to plant in garden, these would be north facing and in clay soil, which gets boggy if we have a lot of rain. I would much appreciate it if you could advise me, then I could either collect as we are local or pay for delivery. Your help would be really appreciated Thanks

Hi Jean
A great variety for the full sun is heuchera Tangerine wave it goes a really lovely orangy red with pink underside to the foliage and cream flowers . Planted with Heuchera Black Taffeta which has shiny slight ruffled leaves and very pale pink flowers
Two lovely varieties
The other position is not right for heucheras really as they don’t like to be too wet

Hope this helps you
Thank you

Do you sell heuchera ‘Creme Brulee ‘

This question was asked by
Clare Abolins

Hello, I’m looking for a heuchera called creme brulee but can’t see it on your site. Do you ever have it?
Thanks, Clare

Hi Claire.
We no longer sell that variety (well at least for the time being)
We sell other orange heucheras that are a much better variety now.
Every now and again we might sell a few of them to satisfy the collectors.
Although at this time we have no plans to run a crop through
All orange heucheras can be brought up on the search button
Sorry I can’t be more helpful
