Amongst our wide repertoire of plant species, we regularly endeavour to include a selection of rare, unusual or more exotic examples. Although these areas types of plants are not specifically within our area of expertise, we find that offering such plants, helps us to keep our selection interesting & increase the appeal of our stock to a wider audience.
The selections that we make are usually not so obscure as to not be within an experienced grower’s capabilities. Some, despite their rarity, are remarkably easy to cultivate within a UK climate although many may have specific cultivation requirements. As a keen gardener one’s desire to grow such plants should not outweigh the importance of researching the specific needs of an individual plant. One should only consider investing in a rare or unusual plant purchase if you are sure that you can comply with its, sometimes specialist, requirements.
For 2022 we have a few such examples growing under protection already.
These should all be ready to retail by late Spring or early summer. We hope to add some more cultivars in the coming months. New additions will be added to this list as and when they are available.
Also new for this year, we can offer another service ONLY for these specific types of plant. If you are not local to us, we can explore the possibility of sending a plant out to you (within the UK). The cost of this will be on top of the plant cost & is likely to be fairly expensive but if you really cannot buy one of these more unusual examples locally to your location, get in touch & we can investigate postage for you. Obviously, as a ‘more traditional’ retail establishment, we would still prefer that you visit to make your purchases.

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.Read more
