Choisya 'Sundance' 1M standard tree

Choisya ‘Sundance’ 1M standard tree £29.99
We are all familiar with the classic bay tree lollipop shape standard, but how about a completely different colour option? The fabulous golden yellow leaves of Choisya ‘Sundance’ (or Mexican Orange Blossom as it is sometimes called due to their small white fragrant flowers in spring), glow bright golden yellow in spring and summer, yet remain neat and tidy too. And they are ever-yellow too – they remain bright yellow all year, even in winter, so offer a real year round feature. Grown on a clear stem of about 50cm, these standard Choisya’s are quite unusual, and work really well as a low maintenance feature in pairs either side of a doorway or gate.

Living Pot-Grown Norway Spruce 0.8-1M

Living Pot-Grown Norway Spruce 0.8-1M £19.99
It’s impossible to beat that stunning fresh pine fragrance that a real Christmas Tree brings to the home. Artificial trees just aren’t the same in their odd shades of green and papery needles, but fresh cut trees are very expensive for just a few weeks use before they’re hauled off to the shredder – and they can make a mess too. That’s where our fabulous Living Pot-Grown Christmas Trees are a real winner. Yes, you’ll get that lovely pine fragrance filling the room every day, but it will not drop the needles – because it’s still alive! And at about the same cost as a cut tree, you can keep it from year to year too and save a lot of money over 5 or even 10 years. The Norway Spruce is the classic Christmas Tree. British-Grown on the same farms as cut trees, they have been nurtured and trimmed in just the same way. But, because they are grown in their pots, they can easily be kept for many, many years to come. Just a little water in the rootball when used indoors each year, and once the decorations come down, pop it back outside and keep it growing in either or pot or in the ground. In itself, it is a beautiful evergreen garden tree, lovely all year round. It needs no special feeding or pruning – just ensure it does not dry out in summer. Very slow growing, you can use it for many Christmasses to come. Living Christmas Trees – combing fresh pine fragrance, little needledrop and saving you money over buying a tree every year.

Hardy Cotton Palm (Washingtonia) 1M in 20cm pot

Hardy Cotton Palm (Washingtonia) 1M in 20cm pot £14.99
This exotic palm is sure to turn your garden in to a tropical paradise for years to come! Tough and architectural, these palms will make a striking addition to any garden, with their spiky foliage creating vivid, dancing shadows in the summer sun. They have large, deeply ridged, fan-shaped leaves that will spread luxuriously out above the stout trunk, forming an impressive canopy of bright green foliage. Commonly called Cotton Palms because of their wisps of ‘cotton’ like strands that fall from each leaf, they provide a wonderful spectacle in any setting. Growing as tall as you let them, these stunning palms are perfect as a centrepiece, or to add height to borders. They’ll also look great in a large pot on your patio!
