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.
