We are currently planning to put the first plants in stock at the beginning of February when the weather begins to warm. However, this depends on government guidance about non-essential mail-order businesses, and also on the couriers and postal services. We will keep you updated.

'Black Princess' is one of the most sought-after and highly-prized hardy waterlilies. It is a striking colour - as the plant matures the double-petalled blooms become a darker and darker red until they are almost totally black. Added to this, it is free-flowering and produces blooms all summer long. The foliage is also attractive, with new leaves opening a deep burgundy colour, making a really eye-catching and unusual plant.
