to Devon Pond Plants My small nursery specialises in plants for ponds,
watersides and other damp places. I can send plants through regular
first class mail at the appropriate time of year or plants can
be collected from the nursery at any time by prior appointment.
The nursery is not open at regular times to the general public
but I would be pleased to accept visitors with prior notice. If
you do arrange a visit there is no charge and absolutely no obligation
to buy anything.
I am always happy to give free advice by email or telephone on
the suitability of plants for your particular situation. Many
websites offer completely unsuitable and invasive species, which
can be a nightmare to control, especially if they escape into
the wild environment. I offer an especially wide range of native
plants for wild areas or situations where escape into the general
environment is more likely. I can give the best advice if approached
before the pond is completed – many times I could have
helped to avoid common mistakes if asked sooner.
BEFORE PHONING PLEASE READ
THE FAQ’s ON THE INFORMATION
do not confuse my plants with "plug plants" commonly
offered, or indeed the shreds of plant material often sold
mail order. My plants are well established over wintered plants,
which are fully acclimatised to outdoor conditions, not forced
on under ideal greenhouse conditions when they can struggle
to grow, often taking another full season before flowering.
Plants are available in many sizes; my standard size for mail
order is a plant that would normally fill a one litre pot, de-potted
and with excess soil removed. (Plants can be root washed if requested).
Since damp soil is heavy this reduces the postage cost considerably.
These plants will grow away quickly and usually flower the same
year if purchased at least six weeks before the onset of the usual
flowering period. Alternatively a plant rooted in a 9cm pot (or
larger) can be posted on request, please note postage costs will
be considerably higher. A full range of potted sizes is available
at the nursery and large specimen plants can be purchased for use
in display gardens, shows etc.
For an exact description of what to expect, please see the About
Us page; “What will I get for my money”.
I also offer a service to trade, landscapers and private individuals
planning larger schemes. Detailed planting plans can be supplied
at a modest charge. Many such schemes have been carried out and
references from happy customers are available on request. I REGRET
THAT I AM UNABLE TO PRODUCE DETAILED PLANS DURING MY BUSIEST
PERIOD, EARLY MARCH TO MID MAY. p
