We stock over 30 different varieties of clematis in our climbing plant section. There is most definitely a clematis for everyone and most growing situations.  Raymond Evison clematis are dwarf climbers and are ideal for growing in patio pots or up a small obelisk in the middle of the border. Clematis montanas have small but numerous blooms and can grow to over 15ft tall making them ideal for cover walls and fence pannels. Clematis ‘Armandii’ are evergreen and slender growing which makes them perfect for growing up and around the front door.

Winter Jasmine


Evergreen, deciduous, pink, white, and even yellow. Jasmines are very versatile. Jasmines are particularly popular for adding a sweet smell to the garden. Trachelospermum Jasminoides is one of the most popular of the Jasmine types that we stock and for good reason. Trachelospermums are evergreen climbers that have sweet-scented blossoms in the summer and glossy green leaves turn flame-red in the autumn. They are low maintenance and drought tolerant.

Honeysuckle berries


Lonicera also known as Honeysuckle is a beautifully scented climber which is ideal for climbing up a trellis against walls, fences, and sheds. Sweetly scented, these climbers are fantastic for attracting pollinating wildlife to the garden. Ruby red berries appear after the flowers which are popular with black birds. They work perfectly in a cottage garden design but can equally fit well into a tropical garden scheme. They thrive in full sun and part shade.
