Welcome to our Shrub Collection

Shrubs provide the backbone of a garden giving height and structure whether they are evergreen or deciduous. They can be used in borders or as individual specimens and careful selection can provide a garden with year round interest from bright spring foliage colours, Summer flowering, Autumn foliage tints and evergreen structure.

Shrubs come in all shapes and sizes from small varieties suitable for the front of a border or container use to huge flowering or foliage specimens which are grown individually or in groups.
