Snake's Head Lily ...

This is Fritillaria Meleagris. AKA The Chequered daffodil or Drooping tulip!

These pretty yet quite exotic flowers used to grow wild in boggy meadows before their natural habitats were drained and ploughed up to help with the war effort. They are now a protected species in the few places in the UK where they still grow wild.

These popular bulbs are from Cultivated stock and grow to about 30cm (12") in height, flowering from March to May.

Plant from September to December in well drained soil in any Sunny or partially shaded area. You should get them in the ground as soon as possible - before the worst of the winter weather arrives. Plant them to a depth of approximately 4-5 inches adding plenty of humus.

A real must and a most unusual surprise each Spring.

Come and see us soon. We have several other Frittilaria - Imperialis, Persica and Uva Vulpis. All very very exotic and worthy of a spot in your garden.

Happy Gardening

In Bulb news - We just couldn’t resist shouting about these ANENOME …..

These are wonderful tuberous perennials - fully hardy and they love full sun and well drained soil. Flowering from April - June.
Choose from De Caen Mixed;
The Bride – which surprisingly is white;
Sylphide which is a ‘hot hot hot’ pink;
Bicolour which has pretty white petals with a red centre ring; A vibrant red called Hollandia or a Blue variety – meet Mr Fokker!
We have doubles too – Admiral which is a very strong pink, Governor which is a stunning red, and Lord Lieutenant, another blue.

The Anemone BLANDA is another favourite. Its also know as the Grecian Windflower and has daisy-like flowers which appear in early spring when little else is in flower. The flowers are an intense shade of purple/blue, pink or white. It grows in any well-drained soil and is often used for underplanting deciduous trees. The variety ‘White Splendour’ carries the RHS Garden of Merit award and is quite charming.

Priced at £2.25 a pack

Hot from the Nursery...

This is NEPETA Walkers Low. AKA Catmint

This pretty aromatic violet-lilac blue summer flowering catmint makes excellent, long-flowering, groundcover for a sunny border. Clipped back after the first flush in June, it flowers through to early autumn.

It then dies back to below ground level and fresh new growth appears again in spring. Happy in full sun or partial shade and likes moist, well-drained soil. It flowers from June to September and is fully hardy. Its also rabbit proof!

Useful as an informal, scented edge for paths .

We have some BIG BIG plants about to flower again. Just £5 for a 5 litre potful.
