Erythroniums – as seen on Gardeners World tonight

Erythronium ‘Hidcote Beauty’ also known as ‘Hidcote Pink’ was shown on Gardeners World tonight is a bold leaved pretty pink plant.

Carol Klein also showed Erythronium oregonum with mottled leaves and elegant cream near white flowers along with Erythronium californicum ‘White Beauty’.

If you like yellow flowers, Erythronium ‘Spindlestone’ or Erythronium ‘Harvington Sunshine’  are both exceptional plants.

Click here for our full range of Erythronium bulbs which are despatched when dormant in July-early September.

Top tip: never let an Erythronium bulb dry out, plant as soon as possible after lifting and not after mid-September.  They put down roots in late September through October and shouldn’t be disturbed at this stage.

Harvington Hellebores

The Hellebores are coming into flower – what an uplifting sight on an otherwise bleak January day! Our 9cm pot plants are looking really good and I have just received an email from a customer as follows,
‘Thank you for my order… I just had to congratulate you on the packaging, the plants looked so good it seemed a shame to undo them!’ Mrs. B., Grimsby
That was uplifting too!

Trilliums… like you have never seen them before!

I received a phone call today from a happy customer called Jason who was delighted with the Trillium rhizomes we sent him last week.  He has bought many Trillum rhizomes from various sources in the past – but none as good as ours!

Just to try out the competition, I bought some recently from a well known UK source.  I received little lumps of rhizome with dead roots on, no sign of life and with a Best Before date of February 2014…

To confirm, our rhizomes are FRESHLY lifted, despatched with lots of live roots and a healthy bud.  They are grown by us and are of flowering size (thanks Dad!).

Please call or email if you would like a mail order list or any further info.

Happy Autumn planting!
