Please remember plants are living and their appearance will change with the season.
During the winter some plants lose their leaves, some die back to the soil, some will look happy and some will look terrible.
Don't panic! This is normal and your plant will look great during the growing season. Our plants are grown outside to give the hardiest plants possible.
Our plants are usually supplied in a 2/3Litre Pot.
Not sure what to expect? Ask us if you are unsure.

Many of our plants are grown outside making hardier plants which will perform better in your garden. During the season some plant leaves can be damaged but do not worry in spring these leaves will soon be replaced with fresh new growth produced by your hard grown plant.
We try to keep our plant list up to date but please note that at some points during the season we may run out of certain varieties.
All our plants are grown with the utmost care; with a little attention and loving care when planting they will grow to be the perfect specimen.
Here is what to do:
On arrival unwrap you plant/s immediately taking care not to damage any branches.
After its long journey your plant may be thirsty and need a drink, so stand in a bucket of water for a couple of hours (don't leave too long) out of the sun and sheltered, but especially frost free.
Plant as soon as possible by removing the plant pot. If the roots have formed a dense mat at the bottom of the pot or have curled around the bottom then either cut the curled roots with a sharp knife or pull away the dense mat of roots.
Be careful not to disturb the rest of the root ball, this action will encourage the roots to re-grow into the fresh planting soil.
Dig a hole twice the width of the pot and slightly deeper. Fork over the bottom of the planting hole to allow water to drain through and backfill part of the hole with suitable planting compost or some organic manure mixed with some of the removed topsoil.
Keep watering every couple of days until established.
