TY CWM NURSERY – HELEN WARRINGTON
We specialize in Carnivorous plants and unusual perennials but we also sell shrubs, climbers, bedding, fruit trees, soft fruit and veg plants. Always looking out for something a little different, last year we introduced our new Geranium pratense ‘Cloud nine’that won silver at the National plant show. We have won large gold and best in show 3 years in a row for our display at the R.W.A.S. spring show. The nursery is situated at a height of 600ft but also by the river so we catch a lot of frost which means our plants have to be tough to survive outside, although we are always tempted by those treasures that need a bit of winter protection!
BIG SKY PLANTS – VICKI WESTON
Big Sky Plants is a small nursery and smallholding located on the top of a mountain in Ceredigion specialising in hardy perennials – many cottage garden favourites but also rarer and unusual plants. The range is growing all the time, from the old favourites, for instance pinks, asters, crocosmia, hardy geraniums and alchemilla , to the more unusual with a good range of penstemons and hard to find shrubby salvias. Most of the plants are grown from seed, division or cuttings so they are well adapted to the west Wales climate.
THE WILD FLOWER NURSERY – LINDSEY JONES
We grow British wildflower plants at our nursery in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. That is why we are peat and pesticide free and aim to minimise the use of plastic wherever possible.
Plants are grown from locally collected seed, or sourced responsibly within the UK.
We grow wildflower plants for meadows, gardens, community projects, habitat creation, wildlife gardens and urban landscapes.
