This Sunday, 2 Sept, we will be at the Sussex Prairies Unusual Plant and Art Fair. See for details.

There will be a rare collection of exciting nurseries, artists and crafts people coming together in the prairie garden bringing a great selection of unusual plants and beautiful pieces for you to buy.

A great chance to source some amazing plants and artifacts for you, your house and your garden!

.... Sounds good to me.  REMEMBER TO COME AND SEE OUR STALL!!!

For the first time ever, one daviesia pectinata and daviesia cordata put aside for RHS display plants.

daviesia pectinata - Thorny Bitter-pea
This shrub is native to Australia, so it's great that it's growing in my nursery in East Sussex. It will be red and orange when in bloom, hopefully growing to about 120cm in height. As it grows it will develop spines or sharp edges

As it is at the moment (just a baby)


daviesia cordata - also known as Bookleaf
Native to West Australia this will be a small woody shrub with large, bluish-green leaves, it will have orange-yellow to purplish-red flowers... but at the moment looks like this...

 I can't wait to see how these two progress and will keep you posted with new pics!!
