Our web promotion partners Shed Baron Ltd, have kindly allowed us at Crosby's Home of Colourful Plants, to include this information on their website. One of the most pleasurable things to do when you are kicking your heels or in need of inspiration, is visit one of the many beautiful gardens around the UK, which are open to the public. Most of these gardens are not only fascinating because of how they look in the here and now, but you can also discover their interesting histories and learn how they evolved. In Wales for instance there are a host of fine examples of stunningly designed gardens such as Portmeirion, Parc Glynliffon, Plas Newydd, Gwydir Castle, Bryn Cader Faner, Plas Tan-Y-Bwlch and Dinas Castle.

Plas Brondanw, in Snowdonia National Park was designed and built in 1550, by John ap Hywel, and when Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, of Pormeirion Village fame, inherited the gardens centuries later, they became his passion. He added an exceptionally well proportioned and attractive orangery in 1911 to 1912, with a view across the former estuary, although this project was staunched by the outbreak of the First World war.

Bedding Plant Propagation, Advanced Growing Techniques & Specialist Seed Production

The gardens at Plas Brondanw are designed to reflect the rugged and dynamic landscape of the area, and have been expertly fashioned to give spectacular framed views of the mountain from a number of points. Magnificent topiary columns line avenues which lead to a raised circular terrace called the Apollo Belvedere. High yew hedges, decorative walls and classical sculptures create charming shapes, while opposite this arrangement, three arched apertures line up with the mountainous Moel Hebog.

The garden was intended to consist mainly of foliage and greenery, rather than flowers and colour according to Sir Clough's granddaughter, a botanist in the area. Although when Russell Sharp was appointed Gardens Manager of both Plas Brondanw, and Pormeirion a number of years ago, he ensured that the sadly dilapidated nursery at Pormeirion was restored. This has allowed commercial plant production to thrive from this location.

Our international suppliers include Sakata of Japan, Ball Colegrave of California and the Dutch suppliers Florensis and Syngenta, and 85% of our own seed is sown by ourselves using a drum seeder and a natural seeder. Our plants are long lasting and healthy due to our practice of using the correct hardening off procedure in the most favourable conditions. We are extremely active in the area of updating and advancing our skills and knowledge, and keep abreast of all the latest developments. To this end, our committed staff regularly attend seminars and visit leading seed suppliers. On our four acres in Timperley Cheshire, we grow some of the highest quality bedding plants, pot plants, ornamentals. Due to an increase in demand we have had to extend our latest poly tunnel, incorporating automated vented sides and a 3m roof extension, allowing us to meet demand with lines like non-stop Begonias, Fuchsias, Geraniums and Rudbeakia.

Our service is wholly centred on the individual customer, and we aim to deliver each order within 48 hours, using the inter changeable Danish trolley system, Deliveries are carried out extremely efficiently using this procedure and a customer can receive their full order in a matter of minutes on arrival.
