Back in Stock for 2018!

Glory Bower 10 seeds

A most unusual shrub like plant that I first grew back in the 70's after acquiring seed from a retired Army Major. This rarely offered seed comes from the Philippines and it produces a tall fast growing soft shrub with large soft leaves and huge 19" columns of small scarlet flower clusters that last for weeks. The plant suckers easily and produces some new shoots from the base like many other Clerodendrums. Best in a sunny well ventilated but humid atmosphere to avoid mildew damage to the delicate flower clusters. More cool hardy than originally thought and easy to over winter in a heated conservatory or greenhouse.

Clerodendrum trichotomum

New for 2018!

Glory Bower 10 seeds җ җ

Clerodendrum trichotomum or Glorybower, is a vigourous and fast-growing deciduous tree from China that produces masses of white starry flowers in summer that are followed in autumn by highly-ornamental metallic blue berries surrounded by maroon star-shaped caylces. A strong-growing plant, Clerodendrum trichotomum will quickly establish itself in a warm sheltered spot in the garden and will need a relatively generous space to accommodate its growth and may need active pruning every year to shape it and to cut back basal suckers. Hardy down to -10c this ornamental shrub is a must for any exotic garden.

Cyathea medullaris

New for 2018!

Black Tree Fern Pkt 

This is the largest Tree Ferns which will succeed with cool greenhouse treatment but not hardy enough for overwintering outside unless in the mildest microclimate with no or limited frost. The trunk and stem is covered in an intensely black fur, contrasting strongly with the deep green, leathery fronds. Spores germinate freely making very showy young plants in a couple of seasons.

Dicksonia fibrosa

Short stout stems carry whorls of long lance-shaped dark green leaves, and a long succession of foot-long spikes of stunning, crimson russet flowers with prominent protruding red anthers. Flowers 24 months after sowing so an exciting candidate for the perennial border.

New for 2018!

Sausage Tree 10 seeds

Kigelia africana commonly known as the sausage tree is an African tree beautiful when in flower but easily recognised later by its huge sausage shaped fruits hanging from the branches. Best not planted where people are active underneath the tree as the fruits weigh up to 7Kg each! The fruit is used for some medical skin benefits and the tree is considered sacred by many communities. Only useful as a novelty in the UK but may be suitable for amy region that is frost free and quite cool tolerant.

Musa ingens

New for 2018!

Giant  Banana  3 seeds  

Musa ingens is the largest member of the Musa family. Growing in the tropical mountain forests of New Guinea, its leaves can reach a length of 5 meters and a width of one meter. The trunk is typically up to 15 meters in height, and with the leaves having a total height of 20 meters. However, since its discovery in 1954 taller individuals up to one hundred feet have been reported! With the trunk up to 1 metre in diameter and the inedible fruit cluster weighing 60 kilo it really is a giant. Very rare and very expensive but worth a try as an ornamental to bring in under glass during winter.

Golden Flowered Ginger 10 seeds җ

Zingiber chrysanthum is a species found in Sikkim and northeastern India, growing to about 1 metre tall with typical Zingiber/Ginger foliage. Fairly cool hardy to maybe -10c if protected and performs well in zones 7 and warmer. The flowers emerge from bracts at ground level, pale yellow with dark red veins and a bright yellow crest.
