Inspired by Chelsea Flower Show 2016 and our Garden Evening Event on 2
nd June, we have created our own ‘show’ garden. It is our Health, Happiness and Healing Garden – you can visit it in the covered part of our Plant Area. All of the plants and accessories are for sale.
We are delighted to be Scotland’s first and only retailer of peonies from the highly acclaimed, award-winning peony specialist, Binny Plants, Edinburgh.
Our carefully selected range includes herbaceous and intersectional (herbaceous x tree) peonies in a range of vivid colours and sizes. We also have the renowned Tree Peony ‘Joseph Rock’ bred from seed obtained from the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. Binny’s peonies are of the highest quality with strong healthy growth.
Peonies need a really good chill in winter to flower well – not a problem here! Give them a sunny spot with well-drained soil.
A big delivery of big and beautiful trees has arrived from northern Italy. All of them are fully hardy here in the north-east. The plant area is looking fantastic with displays of all the different colours, shapes and heights – our customers are very complimentary. One of our favourites is the gracefully-arching Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca Pendula’, it looks stunning.
Do you need some ideas for a new garden or border? Take a look at our newly-completed themed planters for some inspiration. The 15 planters are in our Outdoor Plant Area. They include:
Garden for Birds
Garden for Bees and Butterflies
Rabbit and Deer-resistant Plants
