AGM denotes Award of Garden Merit. This is given to plants considered by the Royal Horticultural Society to be of outstanding excellence for garden decoration or use.
Initially most of the plants we offer are grown in 9cm pots. The pot size is shown as the code alongside the price. As we get more experienced with this method of selling we will be offering plants in 1, 2, and 3 litre pots as well.
General Information for Hydrangeas
The mop headed macrophylla and the lace caps with flat flower heads make very good coastal plants especially if grown in moisture retentive soil with some shade. The large showy heads give weeks of colour in summer and autumn. Flower colour depends on soil pH. Shallow chalk soils will needs lots of mulching and feeding. White Hydrangeas stay white while for others the genera rule is they will be pink shades on soils above neutral (alkaline) pH 7 and below (acid) will be shades of blue. Sizes of grown plants vary due to aspect and cultural conditions but are in the range of 1 - 2 metres. Hydrangeas are very good for flower arranging fresh or dried.
