Plant Sourcing from South Devon to Italy

Devon Garden Design Plant Sourcing

Plant sourcing can be great fun for the client too!  We are delighted arrange for our clients to accompany us on plant sourcing trips and we use a variety of local nurseries around Devon and Cornwall. There is something really therapeutic about seeing a tree, especially a field grown tree in the ground and selecting it to be lifted as a bare root specimen for the client’s garden.  The client will receive the tree over the winter period from Nov to Feb, and sometimes into Mar.

I have included an image of a Pittosporum Tobira 'Nana' , the Japanese mock orange, which I sourced recently from the South Hams. This plant is absolutely super as it gives a real bit of winter structure and in this case will create an evergreen feature for a patio planting arrangement.  You will never find a large specimen like this in your local nursery and sometimes if you want to get a strong statement piece or you need you garden to have instant impact, then plant sourcing is the option.
