Welcome to our weekly Newsletter for Week 7

It's Valentines Day next week followed by Mother's Day in March. We have some lovely plants in this week's newsletter - Pieris 'Valley Valentine', our Camellia 'Margaret Davis' and a great selection of Azaleas and Rhododendrons.

Some varieties of Rhododendrons are now limited stock so please order now to avoid disappointment.

Camellia japonica 'Margaret Davis'

Camellia are evergreen shrubs with simple, ovate, glossy, leathery leaves and showy flowers with solitary or clustered flowers early in the year. 'Margaret Davis' forms an upright, evergreen shrub, bearing ruffled flowers from late winter to early spring with creamy-white petals edged a raspberry red.

Azalea & Rhododendron Collection

This week we showcase some more of our Azaleas and Rhododendron and what you can expect in the weeks to come. These fantastic examples are available in a 4.5ltr and there are some 10ltr varieties also available.

We have a cool store facility where we can store the plants to delay the flowers from emerging. This can work to your advantage as we can guarantee to supply the plants in bud and you can decide when you want to take them during the spring months

Vuyks Orange is upright and one of the best orange Azaleas. Intense orange trumpet shaped flowers in profusion in April and May.
