Conifers at the Garden Centre

01/09/20 We have just received a new collection of conifers. They are all in 1 litre pots at £5.45 each.

The smaller conifers make an excellent central feature in a pot or mixed with heathers in a bank. The larger growing ones can feature in a mixed border or as a 'stand alone' plant. The toughest ones up here on Skye tend to be the Junipers, either the low growing ones that make good ground cover or the upright ones that stand up well to the wind and gales here!
