PGG visit to Arvensis Perennials

Arvensis Perennials is a trade-only nursery specialising in peat-free herbaceous perennials, grasses and ferns. They supply professional gardeners, garden designers and landscapers with a large range of high-quality plants.

Special Plants

Special Plants is a garden, nursery and online seed shop run by Derry Watkins near Bath. The site was purchased in 1996 as a derelict barn surrounded by muddy fields, and has since been converted into a thriving garden, home and business.

Derry is author of two books on greenhouse gardening and has introduced many plants from her plant collecting trips to South Africa and elsewhere. The result is a collection of unusual plants from all over the world, including an amazing range of hardy herbaceous and rockery plants as well as many tender perennials for terrace and conservatory.
