  • Origanum

    These aromatic plants, some of which are culinary herbs, are very attractive to bees and other insects. The spikes of small flowers have conspicuous bracts, which often remain attractive for weeks. They generally prefer a poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil in sun (exceptions noted below).

    20-40cm. Attractive creamy-variegated, aromatic foliage, with dainty sprays of white flowers over a long period in summer. Good container plant, needing protection from frost.

  • Polypodium cambricum Richard Kayse

    An ancient fern, discovered by Richard Kayse in 1668, growing on a limestone cliff in South Wales. The plant is sterile, and so all plants in cultivation are divisions of the original plant. This is a beautiful fern, which grows for me on very slightly acid, shaded soil under an apple tree. It dies down for a few weeks in mid-summer, and then sends up new fronds from mid-August, which remain...
  • Primula McWatt’s Cream

    12-15cm. Heads of small pale creamy-yellow flowers in early spring. Woodland situation, not too dry.

  • Ranunculus calandriniodes

    10-15cm in flower, this summer-dormant buttercup produces its white flowers, which become tinged with pink,  in mid to late winter. They are frost hardy, but the flowers can be damaged by inclement weather and they may be better under glass when the flowers open. Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in a generously-sized pot. Plants are usually supplied in summer as dormant roots.
