Selecting the correct plants is key to turning your garden vision into a reality. Depending on what your garden is like, where the plant will go and how much light, water & type of soil you have can influence the success of the plant. At Fron goch we have divised a system that helps you buy the right plant for the right area. So if your planting area is is in the shade, wet soil, sunny & dry or even coastal we will have plants that will inspire you. Not sure, our experts are here to help on hand to help create the perfect garden for you.
Just a small select example of some of the plants we stock.
Sunny & Dry Areas Calycinum, Anglesey Palm, Chamaerops, Humilis (or better known as 'Dwarf Fan Palm'), Genista & Cistus.
We are lucky to live by the coast but sometimes our gardens suffer. All of these plants are very tough and adapted to cope with extreme exposure and possible salt burn. Hebe, Arbutus, Olearia, Berberis, Cytistus, Elaeagnus, Phlomis & Spartum.
