Growers of Hardy and Unusual Plants






We are specialist growers of hardy and unusual plants. Our range of perennials includes the best of the most recent introductions, as well as more unusual varieties and reliable old favourites, with a special focus on hardy geraniums and both hardy and half-hardy salvias. We also have a good selection of plants for shade, and also a wide range of perennials for late summer interest.


We grow the majority of our plants on our own nursery here in Somerset; these are either propagated by us, or, where protected by Plant Breeder’s Rights (PBR), grown from young plants from reputable suppliers. We use the minimum of winter protection, and no heat. We take pride in producing plants of the highest quality that will establish well in your garden and which are also excellent value for money.


In 2016, after 13 years in the horticultural business, we are taking a partial break from the nursery to allow us to reorganise and refocus our business, and also to spend some time working on our own garden! For this reason, we are not producing a catalogue this year. However, we will still be attending a small number of events this year at which you buy our plants.


Plant Fairs


This year we will be selling our plants exclusively through a small selection of horticultural shows and plant fairs. News about the shows that we are attending will be listed here, and you can also keep up to date by following us on Twitter. Events that we have booked so far for 2016 are as follows:


Saturday 26th March                                 Hardy Plant Society Plant Sale - East Lambrook Gardens

Sunday 24th April                                      Yeo Valley Gardens Yeopen Day – Blagdon, Somerset

Saturday/Sunday 27th/28th August            Stock Gaylard Oak Fair



Ian and Teresa will continue to organize the Rare Plant Fair specialist plant fairs in 2016.  Now a permanent feature of the horticultural calendar, the fairs are held in beautiful and prestigious gardens, making a day out at one of our fairs a really enjoyable experience for everyone, whether a novice or experienced gardener. Relax and enjoy refreshments, often homemade, at all of the venues.


At every one of the fairs there is the opportunity to buy interesting and unusual plants from our nurseries, all of whom are genuine growers dedicated to offering you well-grown plants and advice on the plants they sell. The admission fee for each of our Fairs is a combined package and includes access to the Fair and Gardens, and the price is generally the same as the normal admission fee for the garden only.
