Carpeting Ground Covers

Carpeting ground covers are a fantastic alternative to lawns and soil covers such as gravel, pea straw or bark. They are the perfect companion to footpaths as they quickly fill in any exposed soil and create these stunning displays.

An uncovered soil in the garden is a magnet for weeds and the soil will dry out very quickly and get degraded by the sun, which will create issues for your plants. Using carpeting ground covers as living mulch is your best solution as they will protect your soil, keep the weeds at bay, provide a habitat for beneficial insects and build your soil up. The best part is that its an easy way to add interesting textures and colours with their attractive leaves and flowers.

We have put together a list of our top carpeting ground covers that can inspire you to add a magical touch to your garden.

Magical Rose Carpets

Carpet roses are an the most popular ground cover rose. They can produce an astonishing display of colourful blossoms in spring through to autumn. They’re extraordinarily low maintenance and have exceptional disease resistance.

Amazing Agapanthus!!

Agapanthus, also known as Lily of the Nile, means love’s flower, from the Greek word ‘agape’ which means love, and ‘anthos’ which means flower.They are characterized by their big orbs of trumpet like flowers with a gorgeous violet hue, although there are a couple of types that are white.

We have dozens of varieties for you to choose from.

Weeping Wonders!

Weeping trees are a stunning feature in almost any garden. They add interest to the landscape all year long with their long weeping branches that sway gracefully in the wind. They soothe the mind and evoke feelings of serenity!

weeping tree has branches or leaves that droop downward, creating a graceful profile. Most weeping trees do not have this habit normally and are a result of mutations. These unusual specimens are propagated for sale through grafting, where they are placed onto the rootstock of a standard species

Bare Rooted Fruit Trees

Bare Rooted Fruit Trees

🍒🍏Create a mini farm in your backyard! It’s time to get BARE FRUITED! 🍒🍏
🤔What does bare rooted mean?
Bare rooted simply means – No pot!
💁Is there an advantage to buying bare rooted plants?
Hell yeah, they are SO MUCH CHEAPER!
🌿Does this harm the plant?
Absolutely not, this has been practised for years and years and years. Deciduous plants fall asleep when it gets cold, so they aren’t under too much stress when they’re moved.
💝How do you keep them at the nursery?
In big garden bed filled with loose soil, or big pots all together.
🏡How do I take them home?
We wrap the roots of your plants in in a plastic wrap, we add a little soil and a little bit of water to keep the roots moist.
🚗Can I fit them in the car?
Yes you can! But we recommend bringing something to put under them, as it’s slightly muddy
