You could plant up your garden just with plants in this section!  We have an excellent selection of Achillea, Agapanthus, Anemones, Artemisia and Astrantia to name a few.

PLEASE NOTE: Many ASTER sp. have been reclassified. Most have been re-named as Symphyotricum but please see listing below for their new names and the cross-reference.

New plants for 2018 include ACONITUM ‘Ivorine’,  AGAPANTHUS ‘Twister’, AGASTACHE ‘Blue Boa’, ASARUM europaeum, ASTER trifoliatus subsp. ageratoides ‘Harry Smith’   and two varieties of ANEMONE – ‘Dreaming Swan’ and A. Hadspen Abundance 

As usual I have highlighted the plants that will grow in shade in green. If you have any questions, please speak to us in the plant nursery and remember that the smallest pot we use is 1 litre and most plants are in 2 litre pots
