Now is the perfect time to plant alpines



August and September are really good months to plant alpines, both for late summer colour and also for gorgeous displays in spring. Planting now allows roots to get established in warm soil before the winter months. There are lots of lovely alpines still in flower now and right through August including Gentiana septemfida, Sedum 'Dragon's Blood' and Dianthus 'Whatfield Can-Can' (all pictured). If you're planting for spring then there are masses of gorgeous early spring flowerers including the kabschia saxifrages to choose from - take a look at the 'Plants' list today on our website.

Remember that our regular nursery opening hours finish for the season on Monday 29 August so make sure to visit before then! We still open by prior appointment, and send by mail order all year.
