Achimenes English Rose (Double Yellow)

JT4058
!

New for 2021!

Hot Water Plants 2 strong healthy rhizomes 

A really delightful Achimenes and my wifes favourite. It produces quite large semi double yellow flowers and in strong light (not direct sun!) some have a hint of pink when they first open.

Achimenes a member of the Gesneriacea family are often called hot water plants. Easy to grow if you have a warm propagator to start them off and a warm shady glasshouse to grow them on. Avoid direct sunlight. They make an excellent pot plant to bring indoors when in full flower. The plants die back in winter and the compost should be kept warm and dry but not bone dry, then harvest the new rhizomes from the roots planting back in a propagator to get them started again. I have a few freshly harvested rhizomes available left from my own plants in a few different colours. NOTE: Please plant in a heated propagator using a fine seed compost. as soon as delivered!

Dahlia imperialis caerulea

New for 2021!

Dahlia imperialis or Pale Blue Giant Dahlia 10 seeds  җ

This version of the Giant Dahlia has pale blue flowers. 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 pale blue flowers but by November the frost will probably have got there first. Has to be seen to be believed with huge 3" diameter stems and massive leaves.

Dioon spinulosum

JS4072
!

New for 2021!

Giant Mexican Cycad 3 large seeds җ

Dioon Spinulosum or Giant Mexican Dioon is a very attractive rare fast growing Cycad. It is one of the most primitive and unusual ornamentals and one of the tallest Cycads in the wild. Drought resistant and very easy to grow, it thrives with minimal care tolerating down to just above freezing.

It has shiny, stiff bright green leaves with fine leaflets growing upright in a circular pattern. An excellent subject as a feature plant in any conservatory, atrium or greenhouse bringing that exotic feel. In it's habitat it grows in rocky limestone evergreen forests in Mexico.

Eucalyptus deglupta

New for 2021!

Rainbow Gum pkt seeds 

Eucalyptus deglupta or rainbow eucalyptus is a tall tree that is unique among Eucalyptus in that it's the only one to live in the rainforest and only one of four species found outside of Australia. It can be found in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, where it can soar up to 250 feet. While its height is impressive, it's really the tree's multi colour bark that makes it stand out. As the rainbow eucalyptus bark sheds at different times , it first reveals a bright green inner bark but over time, this ages into different colours, blue, purple, orange, and maroon.

For the UK really only grown as a novelty as it needs tropical temperatures and I don't believe large enough trees under cover would show off their bark display.

Globba winitii

Dancing Ladies Ginger 10 seeds

An excellent and unusual pot plant with many spidery sprays of purple flowers. This ginger dies back in the winter, with new shoots emerging from the underground rhizomes the following spring.
