SOLAS – PLANTS
Our featured Plant of the week is our fantastic selection of Climbing roses, including: ‘New Dawn’ – ideal for light shade, ‘Peach Melba’ / ‘Kiss me Kate’ / ‘Jasmina’ – intense fragrance, and many more. They can be used on trellis, fences, walls, or even climbing on trees. Roses perform the best in sun or light shade and love heavy soil rich in organic matter. Our team of horticulturists is on hand with expert advice.
