Tips & Advice


We are happy to advise all our visitors on the suitability of specific plants for differing and sometimes the more difficult areas of your garden.  We can also provide lists of plants that are most suitable for certain garden areas for you to read and take away.

If you would like more detailed help and advice then Bob is available.  He has been planting, designing and landscaping a wide range of gardens, from large to small, for over 50 years.  He is extremely knowledgeable about the best plants to grow in this area of the country and areas further away and he is very happy to give advice.  As Bob is not always at the nursery (he is still landscaping one or two days at present and is always away when we are building our show displays) it is best to ring first to check if he is available. 

If you would particularly like his more detailed advice then it is best to ring first to check his availability.
