Calluna- Our Plant of the Month

Starting from: £3.75 for a 12cm pot

Merry Harriers Plant team recommend planting these now to give your garden some all-year-round interest and colour.

The Calluna is a type of Heather that provides colourful evergreen foliage.

Both Bees and butterflies love this, so it is a great addition to any garden,

Calluna is great for ground cover and is also happy to grow over a wall. It grows best in a sunny position with acidic soil.

This is a great place to visit, fantastic restaurant, good food, great staff. The walk around the gardens will put a smile on your face and make you feel like a kid again. Great garden Center.

Lovely food and people! Some really nice items in the garden centre. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. A must for any Gnome lovers as they have a Gnome reserve!

We went for the gnomes but the garden centre and gift shops were great! We also ate in the restaurant 3 times on our five day holiday. The food was delicious and the staff were lovely. Would highly recommend a visit 😍

Went mainly to see the gnomes which used to be in the Gnome Reserve, now housed in the garden centre. Bought back happy memories from 30 years ago.
