Growers and suppliers of quality garden plants

We grow a wide range of plants at our nursery for your garden such as aplines and perennials many of which are unusual and not found in garden centres. Our range of conifers extend to over ninty varieties most of which are dwarf or slow growing. This is a range of plants we intend to expand in the coming years.

We also stock a range of shrubs, ornamental trees, roses plus a limited range of fruit trees and soft fruit. Also a wide range of summer bedding plants and many plants for your hanging baskets and tubs.

We display our conifers at many flower shows including Cardiff RHS Show, Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, Malvern Spring and Autumn Shows, Shrewsbury Flower Show and the Royal Welsh Show. We have gained many awards for our displays including many gold medals.

Our main plant production is bedding plants, alpines, perennials and our award winning conifers.

Our range of alpines and perennials include many unusual varieties and are not found in garden centres. With over 30 varieties os Saxifraga and over 50 varieties of Sempervivum. We are also increasing our Heauchera production in 2013. We will be growing about 30 varieties.

We grow about 90 varieties of conifers, which in the main are dwarf or slow growing. We sell them in 1lt, 2lt, 3lt and some varieties in 5lt. We also have some in 9cm pots which we mainly sell at flower shows.

We also stock  shrubs, trees, roses, climbers and some fruit


We grow many varieties of perennials as well as buy in from other nurseries in order to give you a wide choice. Our main perennial production is Heuchera and x Heucherella. In 2013 we hope to grow about thirty varieties, including Berry Marmalade, Delta Dawn, Obsidian, Peach Flambe, Sweet Tea and Berry Smothie which is a definate “wow” plant. A real smothie colour all year round – rose pink through raspberry to blackberry shades. Big bold plant. Heuchera and x Heucherela are ideal for all year colour for garden or containers.

In 2012 we displayed our Heuchera and x Heucherella for the first time at the Royal Welsh Show in July, which we were awarded a silver gilt medal and we will be showing them at more shows in 2015.

 x Heucherella ‘Sweet Tea’ is one of the most intensely coloured Heucherella ever! the big orange tea coloured palmate cut leaves darken in summer and lighten up again in the autumn.

Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ is another perennial we will be growing in 2013. Small green leaves and unique scarlet red and white flowers. These can appear completely red or white at any time. It flowers all summer if you dead head to encourage new growth, therefor ideal for patio tubs or the garden.

We also sell many more perennials such as Lupins, Delphiniums, Geraniums, Hosta and Penstemon, plus many more.


We stock a wide range of alpine plants for your rock garden and alpine troughs. With Lewisia, Saxifraga and Sempervivum being our main alpine production.

This includes our own introduction of Sempervivum ‘Jamie’s Pride’, named after our son and has been grown in trials by the RHS at the trail grounds at Wisley. Every Jamie’s Pride sold we will be giving the full amount to Ty Hafan, The Children’s Hospice in Wales for the care they gave to Jamie. We also have a new introduction this year, Sempervivum ‘Belle’
