just expected time plants will be available

This question was asked by
Neil M

I know the answer may be how long is a piece of string but it is the first time I have visited your site and I noticed there were quite a lot of plant varieties unavailable – so I can plan my garden and if I ordered the plants today (which are unavailable) is there an expected date for them to be available ie 2-3 weeks or 2-3 months?

Hi Neil
We can’t have all of the plants ready at the same time, for all sorts of reasons.
We don’t hide what’s out of stock throughout year so you know it’s going to be available (hopefully they grow as expected ) then it will be. We usually try and predict a time of year it will hopefully be available which is on the plant information.
We don’t let you order what’s not available as it’s a nightmare when something doesn’t grow as you’d like it too.
We have done it many times and it just cause lots of problems for you and us.
We have add a ‘tell me when its ready’ button where you just add you email and when it available I send emails out to all who are interested.
Then it’s up to you to order them asap as they usually go fast.
I am sorry but this can’t change at the moment we are only a two man band and it’s just too much work to manage sadly.
If you want to send an email with what your wanting I can tell you alternatives or a time scale then you can add yourself to the ‘tell me when ready’ button
Hope this helps
Kind regards
Vicky

First Gardening Talk for 2019

We had our first talk of the year over the weekend in a pretty village with a super lovely group.

Our plants are looking pretty as well, with a great colour on them for March!

We are available for talks only in March now, so please contact us to book in for next year! If you want to know more about our plants or buy anything, you can book in for a nursery visit. Email us to check availability info@plantagogo.com

If you are interested in hosting a talk with us, you can enquire when we may be free to work with you. They last for approx. 45 minutes to 1 hour (nearly always 1 hour unless requested otherwise) depending on what you require.

Talks given usually include photos and other props, and a short powerpoint presentation. We bring all our own equipment but if you do have a screen that saves us carrying ours please do let us know! (they are quite bulky).

Plants that are currently ready for their new homes

With the nature of our business, we often have plants come quickly into stock and go back out again, or we may only have a select few for sale. We try our best to let you know what is available.

At the moment, we have lots of Heuchera ‘Sweet Caroline’ with beautiful large salmon-pink flowers over lemon and lime foliage in Spring and Summer foliage changing to lime green later in summer then to lime with silver cast in Autumn and Winter.

Heuchera ‘Violet Shimmer’ TM ( Fox Series) was lunched last year at Chelsea flowers show, and we have quite a few in the nursery ready for your garden! In the Spring, it has deep violet foliage with a shimmer, which as the leaf grows becomes more silvered keeping a violet shimmer through early Summer, by mid Summer/Autumn it is very silvery foliage, dark veins, slightly ruffled, with a purple underside. We named this one after Richards Mum!

We have ONE Heuchera ‘Midnight Rose’ left, so if you’ve had your eye on this one, now is the time to grab it! It has really unusual and pretty pink polka dots cover on the shiny plum foliage in Spring with a neat habit.

If you ever see a plant that is out of stock that you are really interested in, just send us an email and we can let you know if it may be coming back soon. We can also grow to order!
