Viking Nurseries Newsletter Week 42

Welcome to our weekly Newsletter for Week 42

It's another blustery day here in Colton but by all accounts we are being let off lightly compared to the storms in the west of the country. Conifer is the plant of the month, and we have some fantastic varieties to enhance your plant areas with lots of different forms and colours.

This week we also present a range of shrubs to bring colour and inspiration to your benches. Our Mahonia Soft Caress is looking fantastic along with the Escallonia and Pittosporum. There are offers on Conifers as well as 7 varieties of Lavandula in 2ltr which remains on special offer of £1.75 each when you buy a shelf of 36 plants.

Shrub Collection

Escallonia Golden Carpet 4.5ltr

Golden Carpet is a dwarf, spreading, evergreen shrub, to about 60cm tall, with small, yellow leaves in spring turning lime green in summer. Small, tubular, red flowers are produced for most of the summer.

Escallonia 'Pink Elle' 4.5ltr​​

Pink Elle is a bushy evergreen shrub with large heads of mid-pink flowers from summer and again, less prolifically, in autumn.


Euonymus 'Kathy' 4.5ltr

From the lands of Japan, China, and Korea, Kathy is a short evergreen shrub known for its leaves, which are edged with silvery white margins. It generally grows erect, and may bear inconspicuous flowers, followed by fruits in autumn season.

Viburnum 'Eve Price' 4.5ltr

This is a bushy, medium-sized evergreen shrub with broadly oval, leathery dark green leaves and, from late winter, flattened clusters of deep pink buds opening to small, starry white flowers. Berries are deep metallic-blue.

Mahonia 'Soft Caress' 4.5ltr Soft Caress is the first Mahonia to have spine-free leaves, which means that they can be planted near to paths or doorways where you may brush past them. This compact, evergreen shrub is ideal for larger pots, where it will provide year-round interest. Alternatively, it will make a great addition to either a sunny (provided there is sufficient moisture) or shady border.
