Grasses make up one of the largest and most varies of all the plant families. They are found throughout the world, from swamps to deserts, at the poles as well as the tropics, coastal areas and near the top of mountains. They range from the important agricultural food crops such as barley, wheat and oats, through the various lawn grasses, to the ornamental varieties we offer for sale here.
Ornamental grasses have long been used in the garden for the year-long interest they provide, and enjoyed renewed popularity with the popularity prairie-style planting of the Dutch New Wave designers of the early 2000's. Whilst this natural form of using grasses and other perennials is still going strong, gardeners are using grasses more than ever in mixed borders to provide movement, form and colour that lasts throughout the growing season. With such a wide range available, there is a grass for virtually every garden situation. Use the filters on the left hand size to choose the required height, aspect or soil type.
