We hold the National Collections of Helenium and Centaurea at our garden nursery in Hankelow, Cheshire UK where we grow choice and unusual perennials.

All plants are grown and tried out here, so we can talk from experience on how to get the best from them and our online catalogue is full of colour photos from our garden as well as growing and propagation tips

Plants for Sale

We grow particularly large ranges of Helenium, Phlox, Centaurea, Geum, Hemerocallis, Salvia and Geranium plus lots more lovely hardy perennial plants.

We sell plants by mail order and at plant fairs
