Plants Areas

Plants Areas Selecting the correct plants is key to turning your garden vision into a reality.
Depending on what your garden is like, where the plant will go and how much light, water & type of soil you have can influence the success of the plant.
At Fron Goch we have devised a system that helps you buy the right plant for the right area.
For example, if your planting area is is in the shade, wet soil, sunny & dry or even a coastal area we will have plants that will inspire you.
If your not sure, our experts are here to help on hand to help create the perfect garden for you.

Just a small select example of some of the plants we stock.

SUNNY AND DRY AREAS
