SORRY! NOT ATTENDING HARROGATE SHOW



This winter's mild weather, coupled with late April dates for Harrogate Spring Show has resulted in many of our big display plants having gone past their best, so we have taken the difficult and very disappointing decision not to attend the Show this spring. Apologies to all our customers who are hoping to see us there... please come and visit us at the nursery instead, or we can always send plants to you by mail order.

Our sales benches are fully stocked with a myriad of alpine and woodland goodies. From Campanula to Saxifraga, Hepaticas to Omphalodes... it's a wonderful time for colour and by planting now you'll have months of colour to enjoy. Make a day of it and treat yourself to tea and cake in one of the many Hebden Bridge cafes.

Pop up soon as many spring flowering things will sell out quickly, and that'll be it until next year, as we grow everything here on the nursery.

Sunny spot

Narcissus rupicola - stunning miniature alpine daffodil, flowering now (£5)

Pulsatilla 'Papageno' - gorgeous shaggy flowers throughout April  in rich shades of pink and purple. Make a good clump in the garden, followed by beautiful fluffy seedheads (£6)

Androsace 'Brigantiaca', halleri, hedreantha, 'Laggeri' - all gorgeous little flowery cushions for crevices or troughs. From £3.50

Draba rigida imbricata - lovely little cushion with bright yellow flowers on wiry stems £4.00

Lewisia 'Little Raspberry' - long flowering, excellent new hybrid. £3.50

Light shade

Hepaticas - gorgeous shades of pink, purple and white flowers (and unusual bi-colours), perfect in light shade. From £4.

Sanguinaria - the gleaming white double flowers are just beginning to appear, and make a nice clump fairly quickly. £6.50 (will sell out fast!)

Omphalodes cappadoccica - like an enhanced 'forget-me-not' flower, long-flowering, makes a big clump.

Erythronium 'Pagoda' (yellow) or 'White Beauty' £5.00

 

The nursery is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm (even when we are away at events).
