SpecialPerennials: Plants for sale by mail order and at plant fairs

We grow all of these special perennials in our Cheshire garden, so we can talk from experience on how to get the best from them. Our website is full of colour photos from our garden as well as growing and propagation tips.

Please note we are not open to the public - we sell by mail order and at plant fairs only.

We specialise in flowers to attract wildlife and we grow particularly large ranges of Helenium, Phlox, Centaurea, Geum, Hemerocallis, Salvia and Geranium plus lots more lovely hardy perennial plants.

Our 2019 catalogue is now online - order now for spring delivery

Plant Fairs

Martin is getting out and about with a great schedule of regular favourites and some new venues as well. Its always best to contact us in advance if you are looking for a particular plant then we can make sure we bring the varieties you want. 

We can bring pre-ordered plants to a fair for you to collect.  Please contact us with your order or use our online order form. There is no delivery charge for orders picked up from a fair or event and no minimum order size.

Whilst we try and get these details right, things do change so we recommend you check with the venue before travelling. We will post updates to these details as and when we get them.
