Ribes speciosum

  • The most exotic-looking currant
  • Dangling red blooms just like a fuchsia
  • Grow natural or train as a wall shrub

This hardy ornamental currant could be mistaken for a scarlet fuchsia! But no fuchsia will flower in the garden in January!

Salvia Collection

  • Award winning selection

  • 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.
