Plants with Purpose, which specialises in unusual edibles and forest garden plants, is celebrating 15 years of growing
Plants with Purpose, which specialises in unusual edibles and forest garden plants, is celebrating 15 years of growing. Its 2016 catalogue is just out, with a selection of bonus offers for anyone who buys 15 plants in either 7cm or one-litre pots.
Additions to the catalogue include saskatoons and tea bushes. The range of native hedging and small trees has been extended to include hawthorns, sloes, sea buckthorn and elders. Basketry willows, rowans and geans (wild cherry) offer wildlife-friendly alternatives to regular fruit trees for the canopy layer of your forest garden. The company is also trialling the production of wild flower plugs to go beneath orchard trees, at the base of an edible hedgerow or in a lawn. Four collections of nine plug plants will be available for different types of site.
