Strawberry 'Cherry Berry'

Fragaria x ananassa

  • The darkest strawberry fruits we've seen
  • Super sweet variety you won't find in shops
  • Grows like any traditional red variety

You won't see this dark skinned strawberry at the supermarket, despite its intensely sweet rich flavour. Retailers think shoppers will assume they're over-ripe and leave them on the shelf, but us gardeners know different! The darker the fruits, the sweeter the flavour gets with Strawberry Cherry Berry. As fruits ripen and get sweeter, they turn an intense deep red, verging on purple! Just as hardy and high yielding as our favourite red varieties, be among the first to grow this very unique fruit in the UK. Height and Spread: 25cm (10")

Berkheya purpurea

Purple Sunflower, South African Thistle

  • The thistle that thinks it's a sunflower!
  • Unusual border flower
  • Excellent dried cut flower

Nicknamed the 'purple sunflower', this shining beauty makes a fantastic border plant, producing a neat, ground-hugging rosette of thistle-like foliage and a striking flower stem that demands attention in any planting display. The gently prickled leaves make it a good plant to discourage pets and other unwanted visitors away from your prized borders!

Like many other South African species, Berkheya plants are very undemanding, simply requiring a sunny spot on free draining soil. Multiple flowers appear in late summer in a silvery shade of soft violet, creating a real wow factor. The stems make unusual fresh or dried cutflowers. Best planted under a south-facing wall and given some winter frost protection in colder parts of the UK. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Abelia 'Pink Pong'

Glossy Abelia

  • Six months colour
  • Fragrant blooms
  • Evergreen foliage

Sumptuously scented mauve flowers make ‘Pink Pong’ a stand out introduction. This hard working shrub offers year-round interest thanks to fully evergreen foliage - Abelia ‘Pink Pong’ won’t lose its leaves in winter like other abelias, but it is the long season of floral interest that sets this fragrant shrub out from the crowd. Large tubular flowers appear from May right through October, offering colour and honey-scent for six months of the year. As the flowers fade in autumn, their purple-copper bases (calyces) take over, extending the colour interest into winter. Excellent as hedging or a stand-alone specimen shrub. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 120cm (47").

Iris Eyecatcher

  • Each flower is a work of art!
  • Best variety launch since ‘Katherine Hodgkin’
  • Dwarf variety for pots or underplanting

All dwarf iris are pretty in their own right, but few can compete with 'Katherine Hodgkin'. The delicate ‘hand painted’ blooms of Iris ‘Eyecatcher’ certainly give it a run for its money. White petals are heavily patterned with rich blue and a yellow stripe with dark blue spotting, pushing through the cold soil to brighten the late winter garden. Iris ‘Eyecatcher’ is a fantastic mini bulb for pots, rockeries, between paving and front of border. Height: 20cm (8").Spread 8cm (3").

Salvia Collection

Sage

  • Award winning selection
  • 7 months of colour
  • Drought tolerant and fuss-free

We've paired together our two favourite salvia introductions of recent years. Enjoy the reddish-purple flowers of Salvia 'Love and Wishes' alongside the scarlet-red funnels of 'Ember's Wish' - a match made in heaven for border and container displays. 'Love and Wishes' won best new variety at the Grower of the Year awards 2016, and was 3rd place in the 2015 RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year. We think 'Ember's Wish' matches it in looks and performance. Developed in Australia, both are drought-tolerant and fuss-free, and truly hardy for years of enjoyment in UK gardens. Flowering from May to November we can't think of a harder working perennial for your garden. Height and Spread: 75cm (30").

Peony 'Candy Stripe'

Paeonia lactiflora , Paeonia

  • Possibly the prettiest spring bloom you could grow

We recommend the use of plant supports with Peony ‘Candy Stripe’ to preserve and enjoy the large silky, powderpuff blooms for as long as possible.
