Ornamental Grasses are very much an integral part of Pinder Plants. At Beecroft we grow 9cm liners and finished plants for sale, in 2 and 3 litre pots. We’d like to think we have a good knowledge of grasses, as we have experience in propagating, growing and planting them out, as well as standing back and admiring them in all their glory.
Credit must go to fellow grass-enthusiasts Neil Lucas at Knoll Gardens and the author Roger Grounds, who helped to popularise them in the UK, as well as encouraging me to appreciate them.
We are able to supply a good range of grasses, mostly UK grown, but for large quantities we often have to look to specialist growers abroad.
