Pyllostachys bambusoides 'Albovariegata'

We are indebted to our buddy Ian of Connor Bamboo for this, one of those variegated plants that has to grow on you for a while!

Hydrangea seemanii

This evergreen Climbing Hydrangea had taken about 10 years to get to this size but it's proved itself to be completely cold hardy & a great garden plant, & we have liners available this year!

A bloody long name!

Back in March we were kindly given a few scions of  Notholithocarpus densiflorus f. attenuato dentatus.Another friend was able to get us a few N. densiflorus seedlings to use as rootstocks, but these were just self seeded & pulled up from under a large plant. We didn't have high hopes but we did get a few to take!

We have finally built up numbers enough to be able to offer this great climbing hydrangea relative for the first time this year.
