A shrub, by definition is a woody plant with several stems at the base. They are an essential part of any garden, modern or classical. They provide a backbone and structural integrity to any design. Using a mixture of evergreen and deciduous shrubs will help provide a wonderful view all year round.
At Clockhouse Nursery we pride ourselves on the fact that we still grow a large quantity of shrubs ourselves and maintain a wide selection of shrubs all year. They are displayed on alphabetical beds for easy location. If you require something specific and are unable to find it for yourself, our staff would be delighted to help.
Within the ‘Shrubs’ heading we would also like to mention that we stock a large selection of bamboos, conifers and specimen shrubs. Bamboo has become a popular boundary plant providing a tall, delicate, evergreen to semi-evergreen barrier whilst conifers remain a popular choice for adding evergreen accent specimens and rockery height.
Specimen shrubs are aimed at the increased need for “Instant Gardening”, where an immediate impact is required. Large versions of popular shrubs can be used in new gardens to give a mature garden feel, or maybe to replace an older plant lost to damage or disease. For contemporary and classical designs we offer a range of topiary plants such as buxus and ligustrum jonandrum.
