Learn about Cypripedium  (Commonly known as Lady’s Slipper)

Some of the most beautiful orchids belong to this group. Cypripediums have always been regarded as among some of the best plants for the shadier parts of the garden. It is only recently that they have become readily available and this has led to a number of exciting new varieties being introduced over the years. We provide Cypripediums that are supplied in pots and as such are easier to get established.

Recommended varieties

Besides the old favourites, new varieties have burst on to the scene in the past 10 years. The most popular of these is Cypripedium reginae...

Begonias can be started off indoors in a light room, conservatory or greenhouse. The tubers need to be planted in trays or pots with the hollow side up and covered with no more than 1cm of soil or potting compost. The soil or potting compost should be kept moist but not too wet. After the threat of all frost has gone the tubers can be transplanted outside or planted directly into the soil. When planting outside ensure that the soil is light and free draining. If the soil is not free draining add some sand (drainage) or compost (provides aeration) to the soil before planting.
