This will be weekdays only, not weekends. Mail order is continuing as normal. However please allow extra time for the couriers to deliver, once despatched from us. Sorry to say that some depots are experiencing high volumes of traffic, also staff shortages.


Commonly known as Pearl bush


Genus of 4 species of deciduous shrubs found in woodland from central Asia to China and Korea.

A study resulted in the probability that all descended from one species, E. racemosa, whose range has been fragmented by habitat loss, the slight differences being caused by geographical separation.
