Golden Ray is a clump-forming, evergreen perennial bearing broad, linear, upright to pendulous, leathery, mid-green leaves with creamy-yellow margins and orange-red edges.

The Lavandula Collection...

The Lavandula are setting the buds now so we are just days away from colour.

These 4.5ltr plants have been outdoors now for several weeks in order to grow bushy, strong and compact.

Lavandula 'Munstead' 4.5ltr Munstead is a compact evergreen shrub, to 45cm tall, with narrow, grey-green foliage and spikes of small, highly-fragrant, blue-purple flowers from mid-spring to late summer.

Lavandula 'Rosea' 4.5ltr Rosea is an English lavender that carries lilac-pink flowers over grey-green foliage. Lavender's tight growth habit and wonderful scent mean it is an excellent choice for a low growing hedging and edging plant.

Lavandula 'Hidcote White' 4.5ltr Hidcote White is a bushy dwarf evergreen shrub with narrow, silvery-grey leaves and small deep violet-purple flowers in dense, aromatic spikes 3-4cm in length.

The Grafted Conifer Collection... We highlight two varieties from our range of grafted conifers which are looking particularly attractive at the moment with their new growth. See our Availability List for our full range.

Abies pinsapo 'Aurea'

4.5ltr A slow growing conifer of pyramidal shape with attractive yellow new growth that darkens to green by winter.

Picea pungens 'Hoopsii'

4.5ltr An upright evergreen conifer of pyramidal form with striking steely-blue foliage.
