Red Tara 6The Hedychium is a private collection and not a commercial business and therefore not open to the public daily.

An Open Day is normally in the late Summer and details are posted on the NCCPG website. It is normally the first Saturday in September.

If you would like to visit other than the Open Day then please contact me to arrange a visit.

Plant Sales

As the plants grow, the stock is divided and therefore some stock is available to purchase at time to time as it allows, supplied by either collection or mail order. All plants are named as they have been supplied to me. Checks are being carried out to try to make sure that they are named correctly.

If you wish to purchase any of the stock then please contact me to see what is available, either as rhizome or plant. Plants are often in 10, 30, 65 or 125 litre pots. Plant/Rhyzome prices will depend on availability and rarity of the plants. Please contact me with your requirements and I can check what is currently in stock.

PayPal-Standard-Logo is accepted. Contact me for details.

International Orders


Overseas orders can be considered depending on the importing country requirements and/or import permit requirements. As the Defra Plant Health Office that issues Phytosanitary Certificates is local to me, then export can be arranged quite quickly. This will add £70 plus postage and packaging to any order.

Open Days

Usually the 1st Saturday in September. Please contact me to confirm details.

This year’s Open Day will be on Saturday 7th September 2019

It will take place at PO20 7LQ,   just follow the signs. Email me for directions.

For those requiring large, orders please e-mail me before the event so I can gather your order before the day this allows me time to talk to other visitors or please to contact to arrange a visit on another day,so I can give you my full attention. Thankyou.
