Come to the FCSBC shop. We have one of the best ranges of fruit trees, ornamental trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials in Swansea. We also have a great selection of indoor plants, not only do they improve the air quality in your house but perfect for livening up a room. We grow many herbs and in the summer we stock a variety of chillies, tomatoes and vegetables for you to enjoy home grown produce.
There is always someone on hand to give you good advice taking into account your aspect, soil and particular tastes. We propagate many of our plants from the Botanical Gardens either from seed collected at the end of summer or from plants lifted and divided from the borders. The majority of the stock is bought in from reputable suppliers, then grown on all potted up in peat free compost ready for sale. Many of the varieties are selected for their attractiveness to pollinators as we recognise the importance of supporting our beneficial insect population, please ask about our bee friendly plants
FCSBC have been selling annual wildflower seeds for four seasons. From our experience, they are not easy to grow in Swansea’s wet clay soil. To give yourself the best chance, please consider the following:
Don’t be too disappointed if your wildflowers don’t look like the verges and roundabouts in Swansea. The Council has machines to do the work that you are going to be doing by hand. If in doubt, sow in a large container but still follow the advice above.
But go on, give it a go! It is a very small price to pay for months of colour in your garden.
