If you are looking for a SHOW STOPPING Garden specimen .... MAGNOLIAS are hard to beat !!!!
We are big fans of these flamboyant, easy to grow beauties, and would love to see one in every garden in town. The Genus consists of a vast amount of Deciduous and Evergreen Trees, from Compact varieties (perfect for courtyards) to Full sized trees that will bring Colour, Flair and oftentimes, Scent to your garden. Magnolias are relatively easy to grow. They enjoy humus rich, well drained soil, and protection from strong wind and the hottest of Summer sun.
We have a fantastic range to choose from throughout the year. Naturally, the Deciduous varieties, really strut their stuff in late Winter into mid Spring putting on quite a show Breeders overseas and in Australia have brought us many new varieties such as Black Tulip, Felix, Genie, Vulcan, Cleopatra etc. which display their amazingly LARGE and BEAUTIFUL blooms on their bare stems every Spring. Alongside them, we have a terrific range of Soulangeana and Liliiflora hybrids which always provide a wonderful Springtime display.
If you are looking for an all year round feature plant.. you should definitely consider our range of Evergreen (Bull Bay) Magnolias. These stunning plants range from Compact to Full sized trees, with VERY attractive foliage and HUGE scented creamy white blooms during the warmer months. They are relatively pest and disease free and really look terrific in the garden. 'Little Gem', 'Kay Paris' 'Teddy Bear' are some of our favourites. Topping things off.. we stock a selection of Magnolia/ Michelia hybrids ( ie; Fairy Magnolias) for those of you looking for something a bit different.
