My Burncoose




May Monthly Inspiration

With no Chelsea flower show to enjoy this year it is time to introduce you to some of the new plants featured on our website which you would very probably have seen for yourselves on our stand at the show itself or on television highlights.

We had hoped to enter a couple of exciting brand new plants in the Plant of the Year show but you will now have to wait to see these at Chelsea, hopefully, in 2021.

Panicles of drooping deep red urn-shaped flowers adorn this medium sized woodland garden shrub in May.

This small growing, dome shaped, chestnut tree was a stunning feature in the 2019 Chelsea show gardens. It has large apricot coloured flowers with yellow markings in large panicles


Photo of METASEQUOIA glyptostroboides 'Amber Glow'
This is a stunning new form of the dawn redwood with yellowish leaves that have darker brown centres

Normally available from £12.50, however please leave your email to be contacted when it arrives back in stock.


A vigorous, lightly scented variety with startling bright blue flowers, and blue-green leaves with tints of bronze

Burncoose would like to thank all our old and many new customers who have supported us with literally thousands of internet orders during the COVID-19 lockdown. We have had to limit the number of orders which we can accept on a daily basis online simply to avoid being overwhelmed. Our packing shed staff have been worked off their feet and the couriers have also, thankfully, continued to make your deliveries. Order turnaround times may have been slower than usual and you may well have been frustrated at the time taken to answer your telephone calls as the office has staff in self-isolation.

Nevertheless we have continued to deliver your plants to the best of our ability while the nursery has obviously been shut to the public for the duration. A bright spot amid all the gloom!

When this is all over we will be acknowledging your support with a special offer to our COVID lockdown customers.
