Plant Sales (UK ONLY)

For interested Customers we do have a few Plant options for 2019.

Plants will be available when ready from our own propagation during May to September. We do not grow huge volumes of plants and we will run out of availability quickly. Although we often take orders earlier in the year the plants will not be ready until late spring/summer. WE CONTACT ALL CUSTOMERS BEFORE SHIPPING!

Any mixed orders with other products will not be accepted. Plant orders are only accepted for UK delivery addresses and surcharge areas may require additional shipping charges.

Rare Species Brugmansia Lavender 1 litre plants

Brugmansia volcanicola is a rare mountain NON scented species from South America closely related to Sanguinea. They prefer cooler moist conditions but unlike Sanguinea do flower on and off for most of the year. They tend to have more of a lax habit than hybrid Brugmansias needing some support.  Flowers are smaller to about 15cm to 20cm but they are excellent for a manageable pot plant in a cool conservatory or planted out.

Limited availability Shipping June

Dahlia imperialis or Giant Dahlia 1 litre plants җ

If you are into pretty Dahlia flowers then this is not for you! But - if you are into giant tree size foliage then Dahlia imperialis takes the cake. It is semi hardy and from our own experience will stand a normal winter left outside, regrowing from the root stock again in late spring the following year. In the UK probably 10ft is the best you may see in a season but in it’s natural habitat 10 metres is quite normal for 9 months growth! It does flower with pretty single pink flowers but by November the frost will probably have got there first. Has to be seen to be believed with huge 4" diameter stems and massive leaves.

Please note shipping is estimated from mid June not before

We offer and always have offered a micro propagated selected clone of Ensete maurelii with huge wide leaves. Our form of this superb plant has to be the king of all banana's. The one shown in the picture was grown in our front garden and stood at about 9ft tall in late July in it's second season after over wintering in a Polytunnel! Easily reaching 6ft in the first year from small plants and 7ft to 8ft from our larger plants and possibly large given warm conditions and a rich soil with plenty of water and no wind. The fabulous red, stained foliage is enhanced in our cool climate, turning almost completely green in tropical high temperatures. Easy and fast growing, although not hardy, it enjoys our cool summers - Will require over wintering in a greenhouse or conservatory.

Ensete montbeliardii 1 litre plants 


A recent re-introduction into the UK by the late David Constantine this Ensete montbeliardii was originally documented in 1930 but fell out of cultivation. An upright, elegant Ensete with thicker leaves that are a bit greener without the same wonderful deep red colouring as maurelii on the front but a stunning purple reverse. A very tall plant once it gets going with a red midrib to the very long thin leaves, the attractive red strip also continues down the stems. This is a rare collectors item and a must have for any exotic planting. Second year plants after over wintering in a warm frost free greenhouse and given good conditions will reach 10ft to 14ft.

Fatsia 'Spiders Web'

!

Variegated Japanese Aralia 3 litre plants җ җ

A lovely new form of Fatsia mainly grown for its large variegated foliage although clusters of white flowers are also produced in summer. The large 30cm icing dusted foliage is particularly attractive making a wonderful specimen plant for the exotic garden, eventually reaching 2m tall. Prefers some light dappled shade so useful for a dark corner and said to be hardy to -15C but I think some foliage damage would be inevitable at low temperatures without protection.

Hedychium greenii

Limited Quantity!

Hedychium greenii 1 litre plants җ җ 

Hedychium greenii is a lovely plant for both flower and foliage. Quite hardy in some areas so worth a try outdoors, but the flowers are quite late into September. The bonus for this plant is the strong clumping nature with many new spikes emerging during the summer.  The glossy dark green leaves have a maroon reverse with a hint of maroon also developing in the new stems. It produces the flower bracts early enough but it can take a further month for the striking orange/red flowers to emerge.

Strong Red Clone - limited quantity

Musa sikkimensis hardy Himalayan Banana 3 litre plants  җ җ  

We have been growing Sikkimensis from seed for a number of years and we have kept some of the best foliage colour plants for our own garden. We have a few plants propagated from suckers from these that might be of interest for anyone looking for strong red markings. Depending on the leaf on these young plants they can be tinted anywhere between 25% to 50% red but be aware the colour marking declines as the plant gets larger.

Strobilanthes dyerianus or Persian Shield 1 litre plants

Strobilanthes dyerianus commonly called Persian Shield is among the most sought after foliage plants worldwide. It produces quite unique shimmering iridescent purple coloured metallic looking leaves. Used as a house plant in the UK it is a shade lover but with dappled sunlight the colouring is much stronger. However strong sun burns the leaves. Always late in the season to propagate so please be patient.

Tetrapanax papyrifera 'Rex'

JP3953
!

Rice Paper Plant 3 litre plants

This fabulous plant is a bit like a giant Fatsia japonica. Huge leaves to 3ft across, wonderfully eye catching and one of the most best plants for exotic effect. In all but the mildest and most sheltered gardens the leaves will be damaged by frost in the winter and best cut off in the following spring. It is fast growing maybe 3ft in a year but not suitable for windy or heavy frost prone locations. Suberban locations like a London garden should be ok but in countryside frost likely locations it will require some winter protection. Once established hardy to about -10c but much less as a small plant. Our form offered here is 'Rex' and the best of the clones balancing hardiness and vigour.

Yucca recurvifolia

Limited Quantity!

Soft Leaf Yucca 1 litre plants  җ җ җ

This evergreen Yucca is hard to find for sale in the UK. It has a strong architectural quality with sharp-tipped, sword-shaped leaves that stand out in a spiky sphere and gradually form a trunk that can reach 4 to 6 feet tall. The long slender foliage, blue-green in colour, often gracefully bends or slightly droops from the tips, and forms a stately specimen as it matures. Once mature, tall flower spikes tower high above the foliage and carry dozens of pendulous, lantern-shaped creamy white flowers in mid to late summer. Curve-leaf yucca is extremely easy to grow and adapts to most soils so long as there is good drainage. Consider using this plant's unique textural contrast in containers. These plants appear to be hardy down to -18c so a very useful tropical addition to your garden.
