Plant Catalogue

Welcome to the newly created Plant Catalogue.

I have started putting this catalogue together to help with the design of a ‘coastal area’ garden.
I needed a way of having to hand all the plants that I know, grow and possibly need to track down, when designing a garden. Given that my nursery is about 1 mile from South Milton Sands in Devon, most of the gardens I design are ‘coastal’ to some degree.
So the reason it’s here and not hidden away in some database on my laptop is because I recently realised that it could also be of help to my customers by providing them with a logically arranged list of plants to choose from when designing their own gardens.

It is a ‘work in progress’ with the priority on current customers and their gardens needs/situations, but I will be adding to it on a very regular basis until it is fairly comprehensive.

Firstly, I have divided the plants into 2 ‘coastal zones’, Zone 1 being fully exposed and Zone 2 having some protection.

Secondly, I have divided the plants into ‘type’ categories to help with locating the right kind of plants needed e.g. Trees, Shrubs etc.

Thirdly, I thought it was important that the main picture of each plant gave an instant, realistic picture of what the plant looks like in its entirety in a garden situation to give an instant idea of shape, colour and scale.

Finally, I have included the salient details. (Currently: ‘evergreen/herbaceous’, ‘full height’ – no doubt there will need to be more added!)

Please select from the menu on the left under ‘Plant Catalogue’ to narrow down the results into the categories you require.
