Pot sizes and prices

In general our £3.50 plants are in 9cm pots. £4.50 plants are in 10x10x11cm pots, £6.50 plants are in 1.5 – 2 litre pots and £8.50 plants are in 2 litre deep pots. But there are always exceptions and as the season progresses and plants grow, they may be potted on and thus incur a price increase.

Name Changes (most notably Asters)

Where plant names have newly changed they are listed under their new name, with their previous name or synonym listed in parenthesis. Most notably, many plants, but not all, in the Aster family have now been re-classified as Symphyotrichum, Eurybia and Galatella amongst others. Please check the list under these new names to find the plants that you are searching for.
