December Flowers and Christmas Greetings from Downside Nurseries

Downside Nurseries Conifers

Downside Nurseries Conifers from Swanborough Conifers, Pewsey

24 Oct 2019   We have just had a delivery from Swanborough Conifers.  Mark Harvey, the proprietor, is an acknowledged expert and will be one of the judges at the RHS AGM conifer trials at Wisley next year.  He has picked us out some unusual and interesting specimens as well as tried and tested garden favourites.  The Metasequoia and the Taxodium are dwarf varieties and entirely suitable for small gardens.

We will be making our usual winter display of these in the glasshouse by the car park. When you see them all together like this, you can appreciate the wide variety of colour and form they offer.  We’ve posted a few images below this list for you.
