Beautiful grass


Well packed and in great condition


East Lothian


Love this grass, very healthy and will buy more at some poin


I use it in containers with bedding plants. Other containers on its own






I have used before in country garden, but now in more modern surroundings this is ideal in my grass & gravel bed.




Probably not buy again. Habit is rather flat.


Good upright flower spikes, but leaves lie flat. Probably benefit from a haircut in spring even though it is evergreen

I wouldn't buy my plants from anyone else. Brilliant.


Crocus plants have made a once neglected garden look lovely.


Rural Lincolnshire


Lovely plant. would buy more


Another beautiful grass. Graceful and a nice addition to my mixed border. I love the movement and gentle sound that this adds amongst my other flowers and shrubs. Very pleased with the service from crocus. excellent plant quality, prompt delivery, well packaged healthy plants. Don't bombard you with marketing and have a stylish quite arty brochure a bit like a lovely glossy magazine. So crocus are a bit different than everyone else. great to deal with.

Beautiful Colour


This has got to be one of my favourite's, so easy to grow, mine is now a year old and have just re-potted into it's final grown up pot, the flowering stems are a stunning colour and so light and airy, mine is at least 60 to 70cm in flower, the green grass with the purple flower fronds are a lovely combination. I just brushed through to remove the dead grass, fully hardy and a plant that I would recommend. I was waiting to see how well this would do, I am now going to purchase more for the side of a gravel path, think this will look perfect in such a location.




Festuca Amethystina

4.7 7


I have a garden project underway and had planned to plant approx. 6 or 7 Festuca amythestina in a gravelled area sunny until late afternoon. I have been told that this plant is prone to rotting. could you confirm if this is the case and whether you think it is suitable for such a place in my garden In rural cheshire


Hello, I'm afraid I don't know if this plant is suitable for your garden, but one thing they do need is a freely draining soil, so if yours holds water for any length of time, then you may be better off with something else.
