What better way to brighten up a room or a shaded spot on the patio than
                        by adding a colourful streptocarpus or a lush growing begonia. The popularity
                        of houseplants continues to grow as everyone realises the benefits of having
                        a few plants to care for and to clean the air, absorb pollutants, let alone the
                        benefit to mental wellbeing.
                        Why bother with cut flowers? A potted flowering houseplant direct from our
                        nursery is a fantastic substitute, excellent value and will last in bloom for
                        months. (pages 53-55)
As always we have some new Streptocarpus and Begonias that we have bred. We have added a few
easy to grow Plectranthus this year, which are a relation to coleus, keep either as houseplants or
outdoors in the summer.
We are part of a decreasing number of ornamental plant nurseries in the UK who propagate all their
own stock, so when we say British Grown you know that all our plants have been propagated and
raised by us in our nursery in North Wales. Many of the plants have also been bred here and are unique
to us.

Achimenes (Hot Water Plant)
Frequently called the Hot Water Plant, although warm water is not necessary to get the rhizomes to sprout. They come originally from Central and
South America. Supplied as plants or rhizomes as available from February to the end of August. At the end of the growing season leave the compost
to dry out. Keep the rhizomes dry and frost free for the winter before planting again into fresh compost in the spring. The xAchimenantha,
Kohleria and some Achimenes grow best with some support.
