Hosta - Cultivars A to J

Please remember these are all pot grown, well established plants and will be supplied in pots ready to plant out, not bare root as many other suppliers send.



Hostas offer the gardener the most fabulous array of leaf shape, texture and form, as well as attractive and sometimes fragrant flowers.They thrive in moist humus rich soils.

New foliage emerges strongly in the spring and gently but majestically unfurls. Hosta are deciduous and as winter approaches the foliage takes on glowing yellow and orange autumnal hues. They are incredibly versatile and can be used in all sorts of gardens, Japanese, contemporary, classic, formal and informal. They combine beautifully with other shade tolerant plants such as ferns, Ophiopogon, Hackonechloa, Asiatic Primulas and Rodgersia. Hosta will also make great permanent container plants but do ensure they have enough water (particularly if they are in a sunnyish spot) and they will appreciate being planted in a loam based John Innes compost.

Galium odoratum

Galium odoratum

4.50 (2 or fewer items) 3.95 (3 or more items)

{About}
We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen at Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.

Geranium nodosum

Geranium nodosum

4.95 (2 or fewer items) 4.85 (3 or more items)

Bluish pearly pink flowers. A nice form of this woodland toughy from the Old Rectory, Burghfield. Will seed around to a certain extent and thrive in pretty much the driest position. An incredibly useful Geranium, a great candidate for underplanting in shaded and wooded spots.

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' AGM

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' AGM

5.45 (2 or fewer items) 4.95 (3 or more items)

A blue-chip and striking Spring woodlander, comparatively large blue flowers in masses in Spring and possibly the odd one in Autumn too. Slowing spreading to form a mat of foliage. Evergreen and quite charming. Likes woodsy conditions and combines beautifully with spring bulbs and ferns. I have seen it used as a very stylish underplant in a formal courtyard garden too.

Geranium x cantabrigiense 'St Ola'

Geranium x cantabrigiense 'St Ola'

5.45 (2 or fewer items) 4.95 (3 or more items)

One of the very few evergreen Geraniums for the woodland garden. Short growing it forms a ground cover with pure white flowers over most of the Summer. A hybrid raised by Alan Bremnar in the Orkneys.

Once established it's very tolerant of soils that dry out in Summer in shade.
