Narcissus bulbocodium var.citrinus (per bulb)

narcissus-bulbocodium-var.-citrinus

Narcissus bulbocodium var.citrinus is a dwarf Narcissus species. A bulbous perennial, it produces lovely funnel shaped pale lemon flowers in early spring will grow up to 15 cm in height, surrounded by its slender, bright green foliage. When established, bulbs will become clump forming the longer they are in the ground. They grow best in moist, but well drained soil in the growing season, which can then be allowed to dry out in the summer months.  If they are happy, they will self-seed and are perfect for naturalising in thin grassland or at the edge of borders, and grow well in both dappled shade or full sun. 

To find out more about planting your bulbs, the advice is the same as for our narcissus cyclamineus bulbs, so please see our narcissus cyclamineus Planting Advice page. 

Narcissus bulbocodium var.citrinus are sold to you in pots rather than as loose bulbs, because the bulbs of this daffodil must not dry out. All plants offered are propagated and grown by us here on our specialist nursery based in South Lincolnshire. The bulbs are 3 years old and most will flower in the first spring season after planting and will flower year after year thereafter. We supply at least three flowering sized bulbs per pot. They are available to order from October to March.

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Harvington Single Shades of Night’ (2 litre)

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Harvington Single Shades of Night’ is just one variety of Harvington Hellebores® grown by Twelve Nunns. Harvington Hellebores® are excellent, easy to grow garden plants and flower at that time of year when there may be little or no other floral colour. They are winter flowering, frost hardy perennials, that reliably come back year after year, flowering from December through to the end of March. Their dark green, glossy, evergreen foliage also provides year-round interest. 

Hellebores look particularly attractive against planting companions such as snowdrops, aconites and early daffodils. They create a perfect ground cover for areas of dappled shade, such as borders under deciduous trees and shrubs, but will also thrive in patio pots.  

Our Harvington Hellebores® in pots are established plants ready for planting out in the garden or into a larger pot.  To find out more about planting your Helleborus x hybridus ‘Harvington Single Apricot’ please see our Hellebores Planting Advice page.

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Harvington Rebekah’ (4 litre pot)

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Harvington Rebekah’ is a stunning plant. It flowers profusely from January to March, its deep, carmine red buds developing into large picotee flowers.  A hybrid between the Christmas Rose and Lenten Rose,  it exhibits the best of both – large upright outward facing flowers on plants which reliably grow year after year. It was discovered by Hugh Nunn on his Harvington nursery and named after Rebekah who was nursery manager at the time.  It is a  superb garden plant, vigorous in habit. We supply established large plants  as divisions, suitable for planting directly into your garden.

PLEASE NOTE: this plant is subject to European Plant Variety Rights (EU PVR) – it must not be propagated for resale.

Arisaema candidissimum (5-6 cm corm) SPECIAL OFFER

arisaema-candidissimum

Arisaema candidissimum is a superb architectural perennial garden plant which grows from a corm and is one of the finest and most vigorous Arisaemas. It has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Award of Garden Merit. 

https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/trials-awards/award-of-garden-merit 

The flowers or inflorescences are very striking with white hooded spathes striped pale pink. As the flowers mature the foliage grows into impressive large glossy like leaves (like those of the cheese plant).  The plants in full leaf, reach between 30 and 50 cm and the flowers vary from 10 to 15 cm. 

These plants emerge late in early June and die back after the first frost in autumn.  Because they remain dormant over the winter and through much of the spring it is worth marking where you plant them in the garden, so you don’t forget where they are! When planted in the garden they are hardy, but when in pots they do need to be protected from frost or lifted and stored frost free over the winter. 

These suit dappled shade but will also thrive in sunnier conditions as long as they don’t dry out in the summer months, as they prefer moist, well-drained soil. 

For more information about Arisaema candidissimum see the RHS’s website:- 

https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/27046/White-spathed-jack-in-the-pulpit/Details 

Our Arisaemas are propagated and grown by us on the Twelve Nunns Nursery, a specialist nursery based in South Lincolnshire. We offer two sizes of corm for purchase, 4-5 cm which are at least three years old, and 5-6 cm which are at least 4 years old. We offer both sizes of healthy corms for despatch in the dormant season which is from November to April. Given the right situation and soil they should flower the season after planting. 

Erythronium ‘Harvington Sunshine’ (3 bulbs for £22.50)

erythronium-harvington-sunshine

Erythronium ‘Harvington Sunshine’ is a bulbous perennial which grows up to 40cm in height.  This is our own selection by Hugh Nunn in Harvington, created from a cross of E. oregonum x tuolumnense in 2004.  Its flowers are a stunning citrus yellow, with fresh, bright, large green leaves. ‘Harvington Sunshine’  is a very vigorous, clump forming and tall growing Erythronium.

Erythronium ‘Harvington Sunshine’ flowers from late March into April. Their leaves die back in June and the bulbs become dormant over the summer. The best time to buy and plant Erythronium bulbs is in July/August/September, because they will root down in the autumn while the soil is still warm.  The attractive glossy leaves start to emerge towards the end of February. 

Please note:  We send these to you as dormant, freshly lifted, flowering size bulbs from July through to September  ready for potting up or planting directly into the garden. 

The species and cultivars of  Erythronium  that we offer are all selected because they are good garden plants.  They grow well in dappled shade and the bulbs should be kept damp and not dried out. 

Our collection has taken many years to develop. It takes at least 5 years to grow a flowering sized bulb from seed and propagation by division is slow. 

For Erythronium ‘Harvington Sunshine’ planting advice see our Erythronium Planting Advice page.

Our Erythronium range has been reviewed in The Telegraph and provides further information and advise which is well worth reading:-
