The Woottens catalogue

Woottens 01

We have recently been tipped off about the beautiful Woottens catalogue by our friends over at A Little Bird, who raved about its beauty. If you are a gardener, then nothing beats quietly settling down with a glass of wine or cup of tea and working your way through a good catalogue. It’s our pornography really, which is a bit tragic but such is life. I suppose we really have to worry when we prefer reading the catalogue to actual sex, but I digress….

In a way, gardening is much like fashion designing; at the beginning of spring/new season everything is full of hope and optimism and it will always be the best season ever. Flowers will bloom as large as the pictures on the seed packets, vegetables will not get eaten by pests and everything will be wonderful. We are all currently in this embryonic/honeymoon period for the season and the Woottens catalogue makes you feel like you could have a Chelsea standard garden by May.

Michael Loftus is the man in charge at Woottens and he has mighty high standards apparently, certainly if the luscious photography is anything to go by his plants must all be winners. He explains a little about each type of plant and what they best need to succeed and then lists the ones Woottens has for this year. I am ordering Historic bearded Iris, Hardy chrysanthemums and Peleargoniums…well at the moment, doubtless I’ll add to the list after I’ve finished my glass of Pinot Grigio….

A joy and available from woottensplants.co.uk where there are even more photographs to choose from….

  • I was able to purchase the Woottens catalogue and it really did help me a lot. I used the catalogue to create a beautiful garden on my yard. In fact my neighbors used to admire the beauty of the garden. From this catalogue I was able to learn of what kind of plants I am going to put on my garden when season changed.
