It’s that simple!

We couldn’t resist this lovely photo of Sue Blethen’s  Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’. Isn’t it gorgeous? Plant this in your garden, and the hummingbirds will flock to it.

We’ve already had lots of hummingbirds, butterflies and bees in the nursery sampling these. We weren’t fast enough to catch a picture of the hummingbirds, but if you do, please send us a photo! For more suggestions on wildlife friendly plants including those for shade, just stop by the nursery.

Remember, we’re open until 7pm (Mon-Sat) and to 6pm on Sunday during the summer!
