Our New Website

We are proud to announce our newly redesigned Letsgoplanting website and hope that you will enjoy browsing through the pages and find pleasure in finding some new plants for your garden.

We wanted a design that is more modern, and that would also make it easier for you to find the plants that you are looking for.

It is now much easier to use across desktops, tablets and mobile devices.

You can easily search stock by using the botanical name or common name.

The site is now more secure so you can rest assured that your data and personal details will be kept safe. We now hold a SSL certificate.

Letsgoplanting has gone through several months of brainstorming to find the best way to design a good, customer friendly website and believe that now we have something to build upon.

You will find a range of shrubs, conifers, grasses and bamboo, not forgetting our herbaceous perennials and ferns that we offer. We aim to substantially increase the number of varieties available over the next twelve months and we are always happy to source difficult to find plants totally free of charge…all you have to do is ask!

We hope you enjoy the look and feel of the new Letsgoplanting website, please let us know what you think by emailing us at mail@letsgoplanting.co.uk

 

Fantastic new plant found on our nursery

On our nursery at West Buckland a few years ago, we noticed a yellow leaved sport on a Rubus Spectabilis Olympic Double specimen.
It looked so interesting because the leaf colour was very distinct from the parent plant and so we decided to propagate a few cuttings to see how it developed over a period of time.

We can now say that this was a terrific discovery….not only does this plant have the salmon pink/magenta double flowers of the parent but they are now appear with the soft golden-yellow backdrop of the leaves.

The shrub grows to about 1.2 metres in height with a spread of approx. 1.5 metres.

It prefers moist soil and dappled shade (not too deep)

We will be giving this plant a new name and will be running a competition for our customers in the near future with a large prize for the lucky person thinking of the best name….Watch this space!

We have included a few pictures of the plant below, so start thinking!

Some unusual plants

We all like to grow something out of the ordinary in our gardens, it gives a good talking point when chatting to friends, or sometimes it is just a case of pure brinkmanship!
