These plants are all low growing with either a spreading habit or mat forming habit, making them excellent as ground cover.
All of our ground cover plant are grown hard on the nursery either in cold poly tunnels or outside during all weather conditions. They are grown as naturally and as organically as possible not using any harsh chemicals. This helps us encourage wild life on the nursery and allows the plants to grow as they would do in the garden.
So all our plants are subject to seasonal conditions and changes throughout the year. Therefore they may not always look or be as pristine as the picture shows usually taken in the growing season (spring/summer) when they have new growth.
Deciduous and semi evergreen plants during the dormant season (autumn/winter) will lose their leaves shooting new growth in the spring.
Full planting instructions will be sent with your orders.
