Agapanthus ‘Margaret’

Raspberry ‘Twotimer Sugana’

Digitalis ‘Surendipilty’

Cabbage ‘Winter jewel’

Gaura lindheimeeri ‘Ruby Ruby’

Acer circinatum ‘Burgundy jewel’

Is a new and evergreen cultivar. The stem can grow up to 60cm tall and supports a powder-blue flower-head. This cultivar provides two crops of large fruit each year. It grows well even in small spaces and shows good resistance to disease. Produces a strong rosette of mid-green. It then puts up a tall flower spike which features tubular flowers with waved petals. If it’s cut back immediately after the flowering season, it forms a multi-headed rosette the next year.  Ideal for over-wintering in a vegetable garden. This crop produces evenly sized, smooth, dark green leaves which eventually form loose heads. A resilient perennial with its stems that can reach 50cm tall. They produce delicate, dark pink blooms throughout the summer months. It grows best in full sun and well-drained soil. This burgundy colour is held mostly in summer in a moderately sunny position, where it then changes to a vibrant red or orange colour in autumn.
