Sitting some 270 metres ( 850 feet in old money ) above sea-level, growing conditions here could be loosely described as being ‘testing’ but, the spin-off of this is that our slow-grown open-ground stock can be despatched almost anywhere and look forward to an easier life than it had enjoyed here at Weasdale. As a result, we have loyal knots of customers in some of the bleakest parts of the British Isles, who are united by a real sense of achievement in being able to grow anything at all in their locale. Of course we also despatch to customers in ‘ordinary’ parts of the country and, with the Plant Passport system in place, have also extended our service to EU European customers.
Our ‘shop-window’ for our customers is a 122 page (2013-14 season) A4-sized illustrated catalogue, which is packed with detailed information about the plants that we sell, their sizes, their prices and with line-drawings to indicate their form and ultimate size compared with, say, a house or pipe-smoking gardener. It is avalable free of charge to any UKaddress or £3.50 (£4.00 with credit card) to an address in The Rest Of The World but, for the latter, please bear in mind that we cannot export plants to the R.O.T.W.! For instant gratification, you may download a PDF version, free of charge, Weasdale Catalogue 2013. You can print off a catalogue request form elsewhere in this site and send it to us with your payment for despatch by return. You may choose to give one to friends with a Gift Voucher to spend up to a certain limit for a birthday or anniversary present, but please see the passage below aboutDespatch of Orders in case the date of arrival of such a present is critical.
Although not convinced that printed matter will ever be completely replaced by electronic media, (part of the joy of reading is the silence of it all and the tactile quality of different papers and.... I could go on, but wont) you may download our catalogue in these very web pages (go to "Downloads") or run your virtual shopping trolley through the stock, picking a Cotoneaster here and a Euonymus there until your garden or work-schedule is full.
