ARDENING BLOG: ENGLISH COUNTRY BLOG PLANTS

I know that if odour were visible, as colour is,
I'd see the summer garden in rainbow clouds'
~Robert Bridges, "Testament of Beauty"

Come and visit us and take a walk through our Jasmine arch that welcomes you to the Wonderful secret world of World's End Nurseries. We have some perennial treats in store for you, top garden plant favourites include:

Trachelospermum Jasminoides, known simply as Star Jasmine is a reliable, evergreen climber producing an array of fragrant, star shaped white flowers from May- August. We are fully stocked!

For those who love Digitalis come and get them! Commonly known as Foxgloves due to the flowers appearing like the 'fingers' of a glove;  which derives from the term ‘folks’ glove. It was believed that the ‘fairy folk’ used to wear the flowers as gloves. Their elegant tall stalks with evergreen foliage and an array of flowering bell shaped blooms running down the stems, often with spots in their ‘throats’ lends  a rich depth and whimsical beauty to any garden space.

Delphiniums are in –a herbaceous perennial with palmately lobed leaves, tall and upright with column stems. The impressive and distinctive blue and white bowl shaped flowers bloom in the Summer. A personal favourite here at World’s End Nurseries.

To add to this ethereal late arriving Summer flush we have Antirrhinum, also known as Snap Dragaons -a half hardy annual plant that has upright stems with spikes of showy tubular flowers that open when you squeeze them. Comes in an array of colours.

Finally lest we forget the vibrant Anemone are here, whose name derives from the Greek “Daughter of the Wind” thus they are given the wonderful name Windflower.

Happy Planting- We look forward to welcoming you to the Wonderful World of World’s End Nurseries.
