HOME & GARDEN
Avondale is a nursery that specialises in rare and unusual herbaceous perennials, bamboos, grasses and ferns. The display garden contains most of the plants, including over fifty varieties of Michaelmas daisy. Most varieties are available to buy in the nursery. For those not yet available, visitors can make a note of the plants they like and be sent a reminder the following year along with a newsletter.
If you are a garden club/society, you can arrange a Garden visit, which includes an informal introduction and ample opportunity for questions about the plants. Light refreshments can also be provided. The enthusiastic Brian Ellis is renowned for the talks that he gives on a variety of subjects, which can be customised for individual groups. www.avondalenursery.co.uk
