Plant Sales (UK ONLY)

 

We will continue to have a few plants for sales again in 2020 for interested customers. The list below represents the plants we plan to have available but we are not accepting orders until about March time.

Plants will be available when ready from our own propagation during May to August. 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.

A lovely strong variegated Brugmansia that originated as a seedling from Brugmansia Frosty Pink. We had Brugmansia Miner's Claim many years ago but lost it in the confusion between non flowering plants of Maya. The strong growth and bright pink flowers makes this a real winner in our eyes.

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.

Cestrum nocturnum

Cestrum nocturnum or Lady of the Night 1 litre plants

Cestrum nocturnum has one of the strongest fragrances around in the evening, when the scent becomes almost intoxicating. The masses of small, creamy blooms open up at night releasing their perfume, but some scent still lingers during the day from the semi closed flowers. They bloom on and off during the warmer months of the year and grow quickly so regular pruning will be needed to keep it contained. An extremely popular plant always in high demand.

!
Coffea arabica or Coffee Bean Tree 1 litre plants
Coffee is such a well known commodity! But did you know that Coffea arabica plants make interesting house or conservatory shrubs with dark, glossy green leaves, small white scented flower clusters followed by bright red coffee beans.

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.

Hibiscus schizopetalus

Hibiscus schizopetalus or Fringed Hibiscus 1 litre plants

One look at the Hibiscus schizopetalus the fringed hibiscus, and it’s easy to see why the shrub is so popular across the world. It’s unique weeping flowers set it apart from other hibiscus varieties. The gorgeous pink and red pendent flowers make it very popular as a pot plant. Growing naturally to more than eight feet tall, the plant can be pruned and trained but it needs a very warm environment to survive our winters.

This one is a very prolific flowering variety, and a fast growing plant quickly making a small shrub to 5ft ot 6ft. The numerous large flowers are fully double and bright "barby doll" pink.

Murraya koenigii - the Curry Leaf Plant 1 litre plants 

We have a few Murraya koenigii plants grown from seed each year of the Curry-leaf tree. A native of India and Sri Lanka, it is a small tree suitable for pot culture with very pungent aromatic leaves. The leaves are used in curries. Flowers late spring to early summer with small white flowers, 5/16 of an inch across and are sweetly scented.

Murraya koenigii need warm temperatures with full sun to partial shade and a well draining loam based compost mix. The compost should be allowed to thoroughly dry between waterings. Fertilize weekly during the growing season and do not let the winter temperature fall below 18c° when watering should be very light. A small tree perhaps making 4ft in 5 years.

Musa sikkimensis hardy Himalayan Banana 1 litre plants  җ җ 

Musa sikkimensis originates from 6,000ft in the Himalayas, and is significantly larger than Basjoo. Already it is proving to be more suitable than Basjoo in our tricky summer climate, more resilient to winds and continues to grow in cool weather when Basjoo almost stops. Trials over the last few years prove that it over winters outdoors successful given the same treatment. Extremely attractive with some plants displaying young leaves either mottled maroon or with a maroon reverse.

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.

Musa velutina

JP275
!

Pink Banana 1 litre plants   

This is an interesting novelty for planting out in summer as bedding or keeping in the conservatory. A small slender plant with narrow leaves to about 4ft, which flowers at a very young age (usually in the second year) producing a very attractive red and cream flower spike that stays reasonably upright. The novelty is the hand of small pink velvety bananas which form quite a talking point. In my youth when I first grew this plant I would ask my girl friends if they would like to come and see my pink furry bananas! This banana suckers readily from the base to produce a nice clump for next year, or you can cut them off for additional plants to grow on. It will need a warm greenhouse (10C), or Conservatory for successful over wintering but is hardier than commonly believed.

Pachystachys lutea

JP1051
!

Lollipop Plant 1 litre plants

This evergreen shrub grows in a clumping manner with multiple erect/upright stems emerging from the base. At the tip of each stem, colourful spikes of yellow bracts are borne, within which white flowers are held. Once the flowers mature they begin to protrude from the spike of bracts creating a lovely bright yellow and white display. This plant looks spectacular when in flower and makes a stunning pot plant. A rare plant and not readily available in the UK from anyone else!

Russelia equisetiformis

!
Russelia equisetiformis or Coral Blow 1 litre plants
Russelia equisetiformis the Coral plant is a multi-branched sub shrub with slender rush like stems. The wiry branches start out erect then fall over cascading down in lengths as long as 4 ft (1.2 m). Flowers from spring until autumn outdoors in warm climates and all year long indoors. The flowers are produced in hanging clusters of scarlet tubular flowers about 1 in (2.5 cm) long that look like little firecrackers, inspiring the plant’s common name. Slow growing at first it will eventually fill quite a large pot given warm conditions. In the tropics it attracts humming birds for the flower nectar.

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.
