Welcome to the plant department.

Going outdoors in your garden can give you a much-needed dose of vitamin D by exposing you to natural light, improving your mood and energy levels.

Research has shown gardening can improve mental well-being and physical health, so much so that it is often called the ‘Natural Health Service’. Here are some ways gardening can help your mind, body, and soul this year...

Plants Department


With a wide range shapes and colours, its easy to see why Clematis are so popular. A versatile plant which will happily grow up walls and fences, in shade or in the sun, at home in borders and containers. Choose the right varieties and you can enjoy blooms nearly all year round.



Roses look beautiful in any garden and there's one to suit your every need. From patio roses to climbers, shrubs, ramblers, miniature, take your pick. Most make excellent cut flowers. As well a huge array of stunning colours to choose from, you can opt for large flowers (Grandiflora) or flower clusters (Floribunda) and if you prefer something less prickly there are even thornless varieties too.


Herbaceous Perennials

A herbaceous perennial is a non-woody plant which reaches its full height and flowers in a single year, dies back in autumn and then regrows in spring the following year. Many colourful garden border favourites fall into this category of plants including Delphiniums, Lupins, Yarrow, Aster, Sea Holly, Euphorbia, Geraniums and Iris, to name but a few.

This beautiful Red Hydrangea is exclusive to British Garden Centres and is available now, whilst stocks last. Check with your local British Garden Centre for availability.
