Pineapple Lily (Eucomis bicolour) - pack of 3 bulbs

Pineapple Lily (Eucomis bicolour) – pack of 3 bulbs was £9.99 now £4.99
These unusual bulbs will give you incredibly vibrant displays this summer. From June to September they will produce spikes of cream/green flowers, each one with a thin, rich purple edge. Each flower spike is topped with a crown-like tuft of leaves you can see how they got their name! Despite their exotic good looks, Pineapple Lilies are surprisingly hardy and will easily withstand British weather. Perfect for planting in pots or straight into your garden, they will form an attractive rosette of leaves, from which the stem will rapidly grow, reaching around 50cm (20) tall. In autumn, allow the plants to die back naturally, and they will reward you with bigger better displays for many years!

Plum Little Vic Patio Fruit Tree in a 4L Pot

Plum Little Vic Patio Fruit Tree in a 4L Pot was £29.99 now £19.99
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 produces lovely pure white spring blossom displays, and is self-fertile, so no other plums needed for fruit – just leave the bees 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.
