    Ajuga 'Catlin's Giant' is just like all the other bugles except it has been at the steroids. Everything about it is twice as big as all the rest with big rounded leaves that are coloured with a good bronze overlay to the green base colour. Despite its large size it doesn't usually make such good ground cover as its smaller brethren. It tends more towards wandering about, popping up here and there and fading where it once was.

  • Arum italicum 'Pictum' berries Arum ‘Chameleon’

    Potsize - 1L

    Arum 'Chameleon'. This Arum is in many ways similar to our native Cuckoo Pint, but instead of having spotted leaves, the leaves are marbled in a mixture of whitened greens. A lovely plant to settle into shaded areas, taking a fair degree of drought, but growing better with moisture. All parts of this plant are poisonous

    Asplenium scolopendrium 'Cristatum'. The fronds of this variety are split numerous times at the tip so that the end of the frond resembles a frilly fan. The usual vase shape of the Hart's tongue fern is replaced by a more domed effect. Shorter than the species, usually less than 30cm.  Best in semi shade. Will only take dry sites if well shaded and once well established. 45cm. prefers a little lime.

Seedlings do not come true. 50-70cm in flower, 30cm in leaf.

  • Caltha palustris 'Bronze Age' - Marsh Marigold, Kingcups Caltha palustris 'Bronze Age' - Marsh Marigold, Kingcups
    Bee Friendly

    Bee Friendly

    Potsize - 1L

    A lovely variety with leaves that begin the year a rich bronze in colour. This colour fades as the flower stems develop so that by the time the plant is in full flower the leaves have toned down to a rich dark green with just the flower stems showing a purple flush. However the contrast of dark leaves and shining sunshine yellow flowers as they first emerge from the buds is a most beautiful thing. A variety that deserves to become well known. Marsh Marigolds are amongst the first flowers of Spring, flowering throughout the month of April.

    As Marsh Marigolds go this one is relatively compact in growth, shorter in all its parts. However it is the flowers that are the chief attraction. They start off looking like a normal Marsh Marigold with the tightest anemone centre you could imagine. Then, as the flowers age, the centre petals grow out until you have a full blown miniature pom-pom dahlia of a flower in rich glowing gold. 30cm spread. Marsh Marigolds are amongst the first flowers of Spring, flowering throughout the month of April.

    Potsize - 1L

    This plant, which still thrives in unimproved wet ground around us in Dorset, causes hot debate in the family when it comes to attributing common names. My Father, a born and bred Dorset farmer, insists they are cuckoo flowers, while my Mother, born on Dartmoor in Devon, calls them Milkmaids. What ever pet name you give them, even if it is Lady's Smock, they are beautiful. evergreen, Spring flowering plants for moist or wet conditions in sun or partial shade. Flore Pleno is a double form with fully double lilac coloured roses. This form sets no seed but can spread by vegetative means in sufficiently moist conditions. In fact meadows of the double form have been reported throughout Europe, although I have never seen a double flowered Cardamine growing in the wild myself. The double form has been recorded since the 1650's. Shorter than the species.

  • Convallaria majalis ‘Bordeaux’ Convallaria majalis 'Bordeaux'

    Potsize - 1L

    If the lovely Lily-of-the-Valley needed any 'improvement' then here it is. Bordeaux is in every way larger. The flowers stand higher, to 30cm, rising clear of the foliage and each of the stems, which are reputedly produced more freely, carries more flowers; up to 15, rather than the usual 8-10.

  • Polygonatum x hybridum 'Striatum' and Convallaria 'Hardwick Hall' Convallaria majalis 'Hardwick Hall'

    Potsize - 1L

    This variety of Lily-of-the-Valley is for the most part the same as the species, just as vigorous with those lovely highly fragrant flowers in Spring. What distinguishes it is the neat yellow rim that lines each of the leaves; nothing flashy just a simple edge that gives it just a little sparkle.

  • Convallaria majalis 'Prolificans' Convallaria majalis 'Prolificans'

    Potsize - 1L

    There are two ways in which this variety differs from the other Lily-of-the-Valley. Firstly the flower stalks can branch a little to give more flowers to the stem and secondly the flowers themselves are broader and double so that they create a fuller effect. All together a lot more 'bang for your buck' than the species, but possibly at the expense of some of the simple elegant charm. Later into flower than most of the rest as well so useful to extend the season.
