Potentillas on the move!

As many of you know we've held the national collection of shrubby potentillas in the Riverside Gardens for many a year now.  Ten years down the line and many of the collection were starting to get a little frail with age.
Fear not.  They will return.  We have spent the last two years repropagating the collection and they are now ready for planting.  However we felt they needed new homes to showcase their beauty.  Over the coming months we will be replanting the area with a new shrubarium to show the wide and varied uses and seasonal interest of shrubs in general, which will include some varieties of potentilla.  The vast majority of the remaining varieties will be located in new fresh beds in the picnic area and other areas of the Riverside Gardens


We're proud to be part of the National Gardens Scheme - look us up in the yellow book or through their website: http://www.ngs.org.uk/gen/default.aspx
