If its Citrus trees you want then select "Citrus" and it will only show our Citrus trees.



After a relatively warm and wet 2023, summer has so far thankfully been hotter and drier in many parts of the country than the same time last year! The ferns have enjoyed the warm and wet spring and the larger ones are now increasingly available as their roots reestablish after being retrieved from the pine forests. Believe it or not summer is quite a busy time for ferns as people escape the heat from indoors by finding cool places in the garden.....the precise place for ferns to thrive! As long as your ferns are well watered frequently after planting and are not exposed to long periods of strong sunshine, they will grow fine when planted at this time of year.

The new season citrus is also coming ready with Lemons and Limes in particular. Mandarins are a little slower to grow but will be ready from autumn onwards. Having said that, we do have a few ready just ask and we can confirm.
