Alpines & Ground Cover

Our ground cover plants make an excellent way of reducing maintenance without compromising on colour and interest, we have varieties suitable for all garden situatons from dense shade to full sun. Planting distances are a matter of personal preference but as a rough guide - 4 plants per square metre is adequate if you are patient, 6 plants per square metre will give better coverage and 9-12 plants per square metre will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.

Most of our ground cover plants are grown in 1.5 litre (6 inch pots), some of the most popular ones are featured below.

  • Alchemilla
  • Bergenia
  • Also known as Ladys Mantle, the Alchemilla is a very easy and charming clump forming perennial with fresh green leaves that catch the rain and subtle frothy chartreuse flowers

  • A recurring plant in Gertude Jekylls gardens, Bergenia is a useful evergreen perennial, in winter and spring wiry stems erupt from the foliage with bright cerise pink flowers

  • Cotoneaster
  • Heuchera
  • Cotoneasters are versatile and easy to grow, we have the most popular hedging ground covering varieties Coral Beauty and Dammeri, grown in good sized 1.5 litre pots.

  • Heucheras are almost evergreen, especially in the milder winters of late, compact mounds of fresh ornamental foliage supports a succession of wiry flower stems during summer.

  • Periwinkle
  • Verbena
  • Slender stemmed ground covering plants thriving anywhere in sun or shade providing a mass of colourful flowers nestled in the evergreen foliage in spring, then intermittently until autumn.

  • A prolific and easily grown hardy perennial, tall upright stems carry flat clusters of Lavender purple flowers from June until Autumn. A very popular plant with garden designers.
