Trevena Cross Plant of the Month for March
Each month we’ll bring you the plant that Graham rates number one!
With everything in the running, from the well-known old faithfuls, to brand new plant introductions, to the unexpected forgotten treasures, perhaps deserved of their time in the spotlight – Graham really is spoilt for choice.
After much deliberation, here’s Graham’s Plants of the Month for March (and early spring)...
Alpines, early bedding, tomato plants...and heathers still looking fab!
We're highlighting several plants/plant groups for March and early spring as lots of new life erupts all over the place!
Our bench of hardy, colourful winter heathers are still looking great, but on the cusp of spring, plenty more is now joining them. The alpine bench is also looking super colourful (small alpines just £2.00, 1L pots £3.50) and our first trolleys of early bedding packs (£2.99 each) are down from the nursery - ready for you to grow on at home and plant out in the garden when the weather warms up in a few weeks time.
First tomato plants are down from the nursery the last week or two of March - always a sign that spring has arrived! These will join the lettuce, salad leaves, broad beans, brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower... already finding a home in the grow your own greenhouse.
Oh and don't forget our lovely collection of recent exotic arrivals too... the wonderful Proteas, Leucodendrons, Leucospermums, Telopeas, Banksia etc stealing the limelight around the centre! Make great gifts - for you or someone else!
