Fast growing. Perfect for screening

Great for a sunny exposed coastal garden, a shady woodland border or used for prairie style planting.

Ornamental foliage

Bringing your garden late season interest and winter structure.


Grasses bring style, movement and sense to both borders and containers. They are easy to grow in most garden situations and need very little attention. They give you a fantastic show from mid summer onwards when other plants are finishing. Grasses also reward you with stunning structure during frosty winters. We grow a variety of sun loving and shade tolerant grasses - a few of our favourites are pictured below.

Superb value for what are all extremely healthy plants and shrubs. Can't stop coming back for more and need a bigger garden!
