by | May 14, 2018 | News, Plantaria, Sustainability | 0 comments


The Warwickshire based family company, Hawkesmill Nurseries, have a number of varieties in their fine plant range which are now available in larger pots sizes.

For delivery this month and in the super new 3 litre pot sizes are Achillea, Anthriscus, Campanula and Digitalis, all of which are supplied with large lock-in labels and colour bed cards.

The RHS Award of Garden Merit winning Achillea ‘Moonshine’ has bright canary yellow flower spikes above mounds of silver-grey foliage and is an excellent cut flower for a cheerful display. The Anthriscus ‘Ravenswing’ is purple form of cow parsley which has stunning feathery bronze-purple foliage with wispy white flowers. This variety is very popular with garden designers and the gardening public alike.

Perfect for a classic border is our Campanula persicifolia ‘Takion Blue & White’. The flowers are a charming bell shape and as the compact growth only gets to 40 cm in height, this beauty is ideal for garden centre sales.? Whilst our Digitalis ‘Silver Fox’ is a handsome fellow indeed, boasting a new compact form?of foxglove with silver foliage and white flowers.
