Plants for sale from The Paddocks
All our plants for sale are in 9 cm pots (unless otherwise noted).
We deliver plants – free of charge – to the ‘453 Church Community’ in Nottingham, but you can just come around and have a look and select yourself. Currently only cash is accepted.
- A note on plastic: While we try to reduce the use of plastic and only use recycled material for us, we feel we need to provide a sterile and clean environment for the plants we sell. Therefore all plants for sale come in sterile compost and new pots. If you don’t need your plastic posts, please do not throw them away, we are happy to pick them up or just place them at our gate.
Forget the random mix of forced Sweet Peas in Garden Centres and choose your favourite Sweet Peas by colour or strength of fragrance! £1 per pot or £2.50 for 3 pots.
At The Paddocks we grow over 20 different varieties of annual and perennial Sweet Peas (see table below). Please contact us for further details.
@The Paddocks we also offer a “Sweet Pea Service”, by creating displays in pots for people or planting them in your garden etc. You can provide the pot, or use one of ours with a deposit, and we’ll do the rest. The sweet pea pots can be delivered when plants start to come in flower and we’ll collect them when they are over. You have the all beauty and no mess or work.
