Outdoor Plants

We create unique outdoor plants for our unique customers. Our growing nurseries all specialize in particular areas, helping us make sure we supply our garden centres with a diverse choice of freshly delivered outdoor plants.  Our plants are all grown in the southeast and are fresher and better quality as they have fewer miles to travel to their destinations. We offer a wide variety of outdoor plants like Hedging plants, Winter, Spring, and Autumn plants and shrubs, perennial plants, and more!


Something also worth the visit is that we always make sure we have enough evergreen plants; plants that can survive every season and are always a smart choice for your garden! As well as our extensive collection of plants we aim to provide everything you would need for your garden. At all of our garden centres, you will find compost, weedkillers, insecticides, lawn care products, plant food, watering equipment, houseplants, fencing, stoneware, tubs and baskets, fruit & vegetables, and much more. Most popular are our Miracle-Gro Evergreen and compost products. All these products are produced with an added bio stimulant which works as a natural super food for your plants, ensuring they grow healthy and beautiful. Easy to apply; no dilution, no hassle.
