All ornamental grasses deserve to be more widely grown as they add an extra dimension to any planting. This particular grass is no exception. As a mature specimen, it adds a textural/sculptural element to the border and it's difficult to resist the temptation to run your fingers through the foliage as you pass by.
Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
Typically sent out via Royal Mail's First Class signed for delivery service or United Parcels Service (UPS) next day delivery. Postage charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy, see full details here: Read ›
