Rose ‘Babylon Eyes’ collection – 3 x 80cm half standard roses bare root £39.97
Welcome to a rose breeding breakthrough – these deliciously fruity roses are brand new on the market, and we are we believe the first in the World to get them in half standard form. After years of breeding, these stunning open centred single roses have a deep red maroon heart, the result of crossing with exotic Persian Rose species. The results are a cocktail of tutti frutti colours, even on one plant. A much less formal rose flower style, their open centres are a magnet for bees, their ever-changing flower colours provide long season interest, especially in half standard form. You will get one Rose plant each of: ‘Sunshine’ is a tropical mix of red, orange and warm yellows, the flowers change as they age, and through the season, as cold nights draw in, darkening the colours. ‘Cream’ is a lovely pure cream, just like vanilla ice cream, splashed burgundy red in the centre eye, slowly fading paler as they age. ‘Queen Pink’ – a classic berry pink, with darker purple centre eye, softens to paler pink.

Patio Plum 'Little Vic' tree 4L

Patio Plum ‘Little Vic’ tree 4L £29.99
We are delighted to be able to offer the joys of the Nation’s favourite Plum ‘Victoria’, but small enough for EVERY garden! Now anyone can grow juicy, fresh Vics, even on a balcony, terrace or small patio. Clever fruit tree grower Will Sibley has teamed the ever-popular best-selling ‘Victoria’ with a very dwarfing and compact new VVA1 rootstock, which removes most of the vigour that can sometiomes be the downfall of Plums. It’s like someone has shrunk the tree – smaller in every ways, except the fruit, which is just as big and juicy as the normal variety. It still preoduces lovely pure white Spring blossom displays, and is self-fertile, so no other plums needed for fruit – just the bees need to do their thing! Perfect in large patio pots (minimum 30cm diameter for 5 years or so, it produces big, juicy crops of classic red Victoria Plums, yet stays small, manageable and perfect for everyone.

Pair of Italian Cypress Trees 1.4M

Pair of Italian Cypress Trees 1.4M £29.99
Treat yourself to a pair of these gorgeous Italian Cypress trees, and add a touch of Mediterranean class to your garden. Seen all over Italy, these spectacular architectural conifers will add height and year-round interest wherever you plant them. With their elegant, pencil thin form, they’ll look simply stunning framing a door or gateway, or in a terracotta pot. Not to be confused with vigorous Leylandii these slender, manageable beauties are slow growing and wont get out of hand you can even grow them on your patio! They are of course very drought tolerant, but also completely hardy and evergreen, so they’ll thrive here in the UK and look magnificent all year round whatever the weather! For best results, remove the cones that appear, as these can pull the branches apart, losing shape. They can reach 10M in 20 years or so, yet remain very upright and narrow at 1-1.5M. Note – image of plants in courtyard are about 10 years old – plants suppled are thinner when immature, as per other images shown
