Growers of Hardy and Unusual Plants






In 2016, after 14 years in the horticultural business, we decided to hang up our trowels and retire from our business. However, we are still propagating and growing for our own garden, and when we have a surplus of home propagated plants we will still take them out to the occasional Plant fair for sale. Our interest remains with hardy and unusual perennial 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.


The plants we will offer will be grown in our gardens here in Somerset; all are propagated by us. We use the minimum of winter protection, and no heat, with the exception of some of our half-hardy salvias. 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.



Plant Fairs


This year we will be selling our plants exclusively through a small selection of horticultural shows and plant fairs. Mostly these will be Rare Plant Fairs, which we’ll be attending as organisers as well. Please keep an eye on the Rare Plant Fairs website (see below) for details of events we’ll be selling at. We also plan to attend the following events:


Saturday/Sunday 26th/27th August            Stock Gaylard Oak Fair



Ian and Teresa will continue to organize the Rare Plant Fair specialist plant fairs in 2017.  Now in their 23rd season, 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.
