Our Spring Catalogue range brings you a fabulous selection of plants, trees, shrubs, vegetables and fruit to fill your gardens and features many new varieties for this year, including some world exclusives.
Hellebore 'Black Swan'
Helleborus × hybridus
New modern cut-flower quality carnation plants packing the heavenly scent of antique varieties! Modern breeding work has seen the unmistakable scent of carnations all but disappear in the search for longer, cut flower-quality stems. Fortunately Carnation 'Blackjack' bucks that trend. Not only does it offer a unique colour combination, the near black blooms also bring punchy clove-like fragrance to the garden. A perfect border carnation, it also performs well in containers. Originally planned for the commercial cut flower market, you won't be disappointed by the endless supply of fresh stems either! Keep the colour and scent in the garden or use Dianthus 'Blackjack' as your very own cut flower carnation. Height and spread: 50cm (20").
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info

Vicia faba, Fava Beans
Be the first to harvest delicious broad beans! De Monica is the earliest-maturing broad bean variety from a spring sowing, ready to harvest at the same time as autumn variety, Aquadulce. Can also be sown in November. A strong root system and an upright plant habit produce high yields of 15cm (6in) pods with 4-5 large beans per pod.More info
