We handle a lot of questions and queries by hand, but we’ve increasingly come to feel there’s a lot of value in having this information freely available online for visitors to browse at their own will.

During most gardeners’ seasonal plans, spring tends to be dominated by the search for exciting and colourful displays in the garden. Many plants flower attractively over the period, and there are a lot of interesting and varied possibilities for gardeners to weigh and compare when seeking plants with notable and overt spring interest.
Considering this, English Woodlands are putting their online presence to work spreading information on early flowering spring shrubs, while the season persists. The company has already published the first blog post in their new series, discussing the potential for spring interest. The post covers hardy variants of Magnolia, particularly M. Soulangeana and M. Stellata. These hardy species require minimal maintenance, and feature goblet-shaped deep pink flowers and large star-shaped flowers in deep white, respectively.
The company also recommends evergreen species, such as Viburnum tinus ‘Eve price’, with its considerable potential for long term interest. The plant grows well as hedging or a shrub border, and features pink buds throughout the winter, before flowering into small clusters of star-white flowers during the spring.
Finally, English Woodlands are recommending visitors consider Camellia japonica, as a shade loving evergreen with particularly large, deeply layered white, pink and cerise blooms. While the plant refuses to tolerate lime and chalk soils, upon neutral and acidic soils with good moisture retention it becomes a startling and sizeable shrub, with finely contrasting spring colour.
A representative from the company was available to comment on the new series. ‘We’ve always invited customers to contact us in the past, and we handle a lot of questions and queries by hand, but we’ve increasingly come to feel there’s a lot of value in having this information freely available online for visitors to browse at their own will. We intend to expand our advice series over the year, and consumers should be able to find suggestions for seasonal interest no matter the month.’
English Woodlands have been operating since 1919, still catering to landscapers and gardeners across the nation looking to buy shrubs, trees, and planting accessories. The company is constantly improving and updating their online compendium of advice and information, available now to any visitors of their site. They hope that their new advice series concerning early flowering spring shrubs will help even more customers achieve direction in the gardens during the season.
