Horticulture Latest

It’s still not too late for Summer Bulbs and seed potatoes, now reduced in the Garden Centre.

Come along and have a look at our collection of tree lilies, tree lilies are the breathtaking result of years of painstaking breeding. Tree lilies can grow as tall as 2.5m (8ft) in two years and will take on a shrub-like appearance over the years.

The sturdy stalks are almost 5cm (2”) thick, so they won’t need supporting and the foliage remains lush all season. It couldn’t be easier. Grow them through shrubs in borders, against walls and fences, or in large pots for the patio, and let them look after themselves.

 

 

 

Add texture form and colour to your borders with our extensive range of grasses, ferns and perennials, a great way of adding some exotic and ornamental feel to the garden. Suitable for growing in borders, patios and in ornamental gardens.

Have fun with our pots and planters

Come and see the new APTA lighter Courtyard Range. Lightweight planters with an amazing authentic stone finish.
