LAST UPDATED 21st October 2020

Next despatch date is Monday 26th October 2020 for next day delivery to most areas of the UK.


Please note: our Alpines and Grasses are only available to buy on here, Amazon and Ebay. Purchasing from one of these three sites guarantees wonderful plants grown by us, carefully selected and packaged with customer service that we are proud of. Should you purchase from any other site, plants that say they are grown by us will not be ours. We have recently issued copyright notices with a few sites who have used our images and offers without our permission and all relevant authorities have been notified. Any doubts, give us a call on 01775 640935. Thank you and kind regards, Stephen and Hayley.

As the seasons change, the plants we grow, propagate and divide change too. We currently have a wide variety of alpines in 9cm pots that will not only provide colour and form now but also varieties that will benefit from planting now, in preparation for their floral display in spring.

Autumn and winter are a perfect time to plant up containers for a colourful winter display. We have a new collection of  hardy, evergreen grasses - ideal either on their own in a container by the door or patio, or try adding winter pansies or primroses for an extra splash of colour. For an added bit of excitement and Spring surprise, you could underplant with daffodils, crocus, iris or other Spring flowering bulbs.


  • We are continuing to propagate, grow and despatch our much loved alpines and grasses.

  • Payment is online (we are now able to accept payment by debit card, credit card, paypal and bank transfer).

We have been growing alpines and grasses for over 30 years. With our small but invaluable team, we are passionate about our plants. Whilst the former rewards us with flowers in early spring; many grasses show off their beauty in late summer and autumn providing us with all-year round colour.

With our regular production of fresh stock plants and regular assessment on varieties grown, we propagate and grow our plants here in sunny (although sometimes windy) Lincolnshire. Some varieties have been with us since the 1980's and are truly cherished as must haves for the garden.

We sell wholesale and mail order. Plants can be delivered by trolley or by box. On offer at the moment, we have lots of special collections for you to choose from, including last year's best sellers - 20 alpines as chosen by Stephen and 15 grasses as chosen by Hayley.

Your satisfaction is extremely important to us, we are here to help and advise 7 days a week, either by telephone or email.

For those of you wishing to make up your own alpine or grass collection, please request this week's list of available plants, which we will send by email. Either fill in our contact form or call us on 01775 640935.

Whilst we supply alpines and grasses for 52 weeks of the year, we also sell Christmas Trees in pots and as cut trees throughout November and December. Starting as seedlings on our nursery, our Nordmanii (non-drop), Norway Spruce and Blue Spruce are cared for all year round, ready for you to choose near Christmas.


We look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes,

Stephen, Hayley, Katie, Alan and Patsy
