Perennials in Enfield

Perennial Plants

A perennial plant or simply perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years. The term is often used to differentiate a plant from shorter lived annuals and biennials. When used by gardeners or horticulturalists, perennial applies specifically to winter hardy herbaceous plants.

A herbaceous plant is a plant that has leaves and stems that die down at the end of the growing season to the soil level. They have no persistent woody stem above ground however there are some plants classified as evergreen perennials. These do have some leaves and stems that remain throughout the winter. How good they look during the cold months really depends on the severity of the winter itself.

We offer an extensive selection of herbaceous perennial plants. As well as the ‘Old Favourites’ such as Lupins and Delphiniums, alpine perennials, grasses and ferns can be found in the outdoor sales area at the front of our Nursery.

Our perennial plant range continues to grow, as does the period of time in which they are available. A large quantity of 2 Ltr +, size plants are still grown on site, whilst we stock different price ranges in 1 Ltr pots supplied by two of the UK’s best growers. During peak perennial months (April to June), there are regularly more than 250 different varieties available.

Site Plan

Finding your way around our site

Over recent years we have put a lot of effort into making our nursery as easilly accessible as possible. The entire sales area & car park have hard sufaces made from either concrete or tarmac. Outside pathways are wide and our sales beds are sturdy brickwork allowing customers to sit & take a rest if one of our benches is too far away or already occupied.

We feel that you will be able to navigate our nursery with ease, whether you are here for a leisurely browse or a calculated ‘in & out’ quick shop. Free copies of the nursery map (shown to the right) are available from our customer services desk, they also have a shop layout map on the back of them. Don’t forget, a member of staff will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

We hope that you enjoy your visit.

Established in 1928

Not many Garden Centres can boast over ninety years of history, and yes, we have seen many changes over that period. Indeed change will continue as we strive always to supply the best in plants and facilities. One thing, however, will never change:

The core philosophy first introduced by Archibald John Mills way back in 1928 remains - the philosophy that built the company’s reputation, sustains it now, and will guide it in the future:

The best way to keep gardeners happy is to offer them plants of the highest quality, sold at reasonable prices.
