Best Time To Plant

You can now enjoy true year-round interest with vibrant flower colour, brightly coloured berries and stems, tactile bark and wonderfully fragrant flowers all for less than 1.25 per shrub simply brilliant value for money!

These 12 tried and tested garden winners will fill any gaps you might have in your existing beds and borders or allow you to plant a new one from scratch, with each individual shrub having the potential to fill 1m2 / circa 10ftsq. Once planted they will rapidly grow away and look tremendous from this year onwards, providing a stunning visual display and a degree of privacy and security for you, as well as a natural safe haven for a wide variety of wildlife. The berries will provide much needed winter food for wild birds and the shrubby structure will provide cover and protection for them too.

Varieties Included:
Symphoricarpos albus: Known as the 'Common Snowberry' for obvious reason! The berries provide much needed winter food for wildlife. Height 3-4ft.
Syringa vulgaris: The common Lilac produces fragrant lavender coloured blooms each May. Hardy and deciduous and great for hedging, it grows to 10-15ft tall.
Cornus alba: The 'Red-Barked Dogwood' provides fantastic autumn colour with its bright red vertical branches. In summer it leafs up and even has soft pink flowers in mid-summer. Height 3-4ft.
Potentilla fruticosa: An evergreen beauty, with masses of yellow saucer-shaped bloom throughout summer. Trim each March to make a perfect hedge. Height 3-4ft.
Ribes aureum: Part of the currant family and known as the 'Golden Currant or 'Clove Currant. The bright yellow blooms have a vanilla-clove aroma. The foliage has beautiful autumn colour. Height 3-4ft.
Spirea douglasii: Part of the rose family, it is often know as The Rose Spirea. Easy to grow with masses of pretty pink flowers in early summer. Perfect for small spaces - height 3ft
Forsythia intermedia 'Spectabilis': Literally one of the most spectacular early season shrubs because of its bright yellow bloom. Perfect for hedges and really easy to grow. Height 4-5 ft. although can be trimmed in to a tidy hedge.
Hypericum moserianum 'St John's Wort: Lush green foliage and pretty, bright yellow flowers all summer long. Perfect for a sunny or part-shaded position. Height 3-4ft.
Deutzia scabra: Also Known as the Fuzzy Deutzia, this native of Japan & China grows to around 8ft tall and smothers itself in pure white fragrant flowers in June.
Berberis thunbergii 'Atropurpurea': A great hedging plant because of its spiky branches, but also a beautiful garden plant. The yellow flowers appear in late spring and the purple foliage provides lovely autumn colour. Height 3-4ft.
Philadelphus coronarius: Commonly known as the 'Mock Orange' it will be clothed in a profusion of creamy-white flowers throughout June & July. The flowers are fabulously fragrant. Height 5-6ft.
Weigela rosea: A lovely garden shrub, with fabulous pink flower colour in May, June and July. Height 3-4ft.


'We ordered the collection of 12 shrubs back in March/April as we have a large garden which was just lawn. We had previously purchased 2 shrubs from a garden centre that cost more than the 12 we bought from you. We thought if half survived, it would be worth the money but all 12 have thrived and a few have over taken the ones from the garden centre. The Spirea has even flowered, the Ribes has grown about 24 in these few months. What a bargain for these shrubs, yes its worrying when they turn up all bare but if regularly watered, they soon spring to life.'

28-Jun-2014 -- Service rating : Ordered Hardy Shrub collection. Didn't arrive, so checked website to track order, nothing there so phoned Peter at you Garden to be told items out of stock and will arrange a refund, then phone went dead. Next day items arrived, although not altogether the correct items. Quality of items not good and will not be buying from them again. Wish I had loked at other people's reviews before ordering
Product : Supposed to be 12 shrubs. They doubled up on 2 varieties which are easy to take cutting from anyway but the more unusual shrubs were missing. I only placed the order because of the unusual shrubs they were going to supply

24-Feb-2014 + Service rating : Good service however was very concerned that approx 1week after ordering my card was used fraudulently! I had used several websites recently but yours was the only one that I had never used before! I'm not saying it came from you but you have to agree it makes you wonder which I'm afraid might put me off using you again! I have no way of knowing what the route of the issue was but dont quite frankly want my card cancelled again its a pain!
Product : Too early to tell if they will survive but most are shooting so good sign
Thank you again for your order. I appreciate your concerns however I can assure you that our site is 100% secure and compliant. If you need any more details please don't hesitate to email us on

11-Feb-2014 NA excellent service and great products No Comment
01-Feb-2014 + Service rating : Arrived quickly and well packaged.
Product : I had not got a bed ready to plant the shrubs in so I have put them temporarily in my veg plot and will transplant later. I purchased two of the shrub collections. Unfortunately I did not check the labels on the shrubs before heeling them in obscuring what they were. As I got to the end of planting I found that I had got two of one type in one of the packs when it should have been one each type so I don't know which one is missing unless I dig them all up again.Therefore a bit disappointed.
No Comment
31-Jan-2014 + Service rating : Products were delivered promptly. They were left over the side gate, however, there was no note left to this effect. I'm not sure how long the box had been there but the box was saturated.
Product : It would have been helpful to have had an instruction included that told me how to store the bare root shrubs until it will be possible to get out in the garden.
