Conservatory and Sunroom

We probably use the term Conservatory Plants a bit too freely – after all, plants were around long before conservatories, and with a bit of ingenuity, it is amazing the number of ‘conservatory’ plants you can grow - without a conservatory! A sun-lounge, porch or gently heated greenhouse will be appreciated by many medium-sized plants and some smaller plants can be accommodated on a windowsill. Plants in this category are generally regarded as best grown permanently indoors, due to their size, habit, flowering or tenderness. Wherever possible plants will appreciate a spell outdoors in summer. 

We only show you the plants we hope to have for sale in 2024, if not available now they will progressively become so through the spring.
