UK Grower Focus
This month we focus on how Hawkesmill Nurseries are setting the market alight!
Growing Grasses With A Bang!
The Hawkesmill team excel in offering a wide selection of ornamental grasses. This is more prevalent now that they have the extra growing room with their substantial new glasshouse.
Their range of grasses include those such as the Pennisetum 'Fireworks', Pennisetum 'Hamelyn Gold' and the wonderful array of Carex's including 'Evergold', 'Feather Falls', 'Ice Dance' and 'Milk Chocolate'.
Pennisetum 'Fireworks' (above), is the perfect variety for the 'bonfire' season, with hues of the brightest pinks and purples. This multi-coloured fountain grass forms fluffy, bottlebrush flowers from mid-summer to autumn and makes the perfect display when contrasted with varieties such as Heucheras.
The stunning flower spikes are also ideal for drying and adding to flower arrangements .... for your very own indoor firework display!
Carex 'Feather Falls'
Wide Array of Carex Types
The wide array of Carex types also have their place in the garden at this time of year, with varieties such as the evergreen grass, Carex 'Milk Chocolate' showing a stunning amber tinge in the autumn.
Types such as Carex 'Ice Dance' display leaves of glossy green edged in white progressing to their show of auburn flower spikes in the spring.
Pennisetum 'Hamelyn Gold'
Hawkesmill's selection of this month's ornamental grasses is available now in leading garden centres.
