December Conservatory & Greenhouse Tips

Buy your friends and family plants this Christmas for a change. We have a range of Christmas Special Offers – especially Winter flowering Camellias to choose from.

Many of your conservatory plants – especially evergreen ones – are much tougher than you may think and can readily survive a brief spell of minus 5°C.  These include Dicksonia, Trachelospermum, Pseudopanax, Leptospermum, Acca, Passiflora and Jasminum so do not worry unduly.  Bougainvillea and Sollya may well not be so fortunate!
