Herbaceous Perennials

Looking across the Nursery beds at blocks of herbaceous perennial plants in flower is a sight to behold. The popularity of this family of plants has grown over recent years offering colour throughout the garden for many months of the year.

Fordham Nursery grow an extensive range of herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses and ferns, including the familiar ones together with a few more unusual varieties.

Sizes and Choice

We offer a wide range of Herbaceous Perennials grown mainly in 2L pots. We are also able to source many more varieties if required (usually in 1 litre pots or P9 Liners).

The range of plants can vary from small rockery type plants up to large architectural ones giving the chance to create some dramatic finishes to the garden especially if planted en mass.
