Malus domestica 'Katy' (syn. 'Katja')
This very attractive dessert apple was raised from a cross between two of our favourite British apples - James Grieve and Worcester Pearmain. It produces heavy crops of medium sized bright red fruits with a firm, finely textured flesh. Sweet and very juicy with a refreshing flavour, sometimes characterised with a hint of strawberry. Very popular with children but also an excellent variety for juicing as it produces beautiful pink juice. Easy to grow, very disease resistant and suitable for cooler areas.
Pollination: Group B.
Season: Sept - early Oct.
This new variety is extremely heavy cropping and ripens very late in the season. The berries are large and firm and if left to ripen on the bush fully have a rich flavour and lovely aroma. Beautiful red autumn foliage.
Plant size: 2 litre pot.
Available for delivery: all year.
Rheum hybridum 'Livingstone'
The world’s first autumn-cropping rhubarb! This British bred variety will crop twice a year - in spring and again in the autumn as unlike other varieties it does not require a period of summer dormancy. The succulent red stalks have an excellent flavour and can be harvested May/June and again September-November. Heavy cropping and disease resistant.
Plant size: 9cm pot.
Rosa canina (Dog Rose/Wild Rose)
A fast growing prickly shrub often used in an informal mixed hedge to form an impenetrable barrier. The arching stems produce a burst of pale pink flowers in May/June followed by a fantastic show of edible bright red hips that are good for rose-hip syrup or providing bird food in the winter. Plant 30-45cm (12-18in) apart. Ultimate height (untrimmed): 2.1m (7ft). Recommended hedge height: 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft). Average growth rate: 45cm (18in) per year.
Height on despatch: 45-60cm (18-24in).

Almost all new plants will benefit from rootgrow™ but there are a few exceptions: blueberries, cranberries, lingonberries, rhododendrons, azaleas, heathers & brassicas. It should be noted that using rootgrow™ on these plants will not harm them - it just won’t work.
