Let us introduce you to the real stars at Green Pastures…our plants!
Trees and Shrubs: Trees and shrubs form the skeleton of a garden and offer a low maintenance option to the busy gardener. Our trees mostly start off life in a field and are then lifted for us to pot up in the autumn and grow on ready for sale; a process which means we can offer trees at excellent value for money. Most of our shrubs are hand-picked when we visit our growers, ensuring first class quality and we always strive to include some unusual alternatives for the gardener who craves something a little different.
Bedding Plants: No matter what the time of year, instant colour awaits you at Green Pastures! From winter flowering pansies and violas, to primroses in the spring and geraniums in the summer; we can keep you patio blooming. All our bedding and basket plants are either home grown, or grown very locally to ensure we can offer some of the very best prices around.
Perennials: Perennials (the flowers which emerge year in year out) are an enormous favourite with the Green Pastures customers and spring and summer sees a particularly wide selection on offer. We supplement our home grown plants with those from a handful of carefully selected nursery growers in the region so we can offer a really exciting mix of irresistible varieties, including a number of grasses and hardy ferns.
Fruit: Our fruit trees and bushes really are excellent value. In the autumn and winter we can offer bare root trees and our containerised stock gives you the chance to still pick up a bargain at other times of year. In spring 2009 we introduced Goji berries into our range following the recent demand for this super healthy fruit; they’re prolific, very easy to grow and extremely good for you so why not give them a go?
Vegetables and Herbs: Our selection of mostly home grown vegetable and herb plants will keep the keen “Grown Your Own” and foodie enthusiasts well supplied through the year. Whilst our herbs are mostly grown in individual pots the majority of vegetables are grown in trays. All the gardeners favourites are catered for as well as more unusual vegetables such Kohl Rabi.
Roses: We don’t claim to have the biggest selection of roses around, but our roses offer excellent value and with nearly all of them originating from the fields of Norfolk and Suffolk, we can be sure they’ve been expertly grown by growers we can trust. Our selection changes throughout the year and includes the bomb proof but beautiful “Flower Carpet” ground cover roses, the “Wishes” series which make perfect gifts to celebrate wedding anniversaries, standard and patio standards (perfect for containers) and the celebrated New English Roses bred by David Austin.
Conifers: Our small but beautiful range of conifers proves that you don’t have to have flowers to have a beautiful garden. These unsung heroes can valiantly fulfil so many different functions are around the garden and we always choose colourful and interesting varieties. Our policy of visiting our nursery growers and choosing each individual plant ourselves pays handsome dividends when we’re looking for large specimens in perfect proportions.
Planted Containers: Are you looking for a stunning planted container but you’re unsure of how to go about putting it all together? Maybe you’re looking for a super gift for somebody special or do you simply just want somebody else to do the getting your hands dirty bit? Green Pastures has the answer, either with our range of ready planted containers all ready to go or alternatively you can take advantage of our bespoke planting service where we can put together exactly what you need, often while you wait!
