Plant Shrubs Now, Enjoy them Forever!

Plant Shrubs Now, Enjoy Forever!

Choose the most suitable shrubs to plant now and you really will enjoy them forever more! Shrubs create gentle backdrops in the summer months, and then in winter take centre stage with their contrasting foliage. Now is a great time to plant shrubs, especially in containers. If you are planting shrubs in the ground, avoid planting them when the ground is waterlogged or frozen.

Take your pick from our selection of popular shrubs, at amazing value in our Early Bird Sale Shrub Bonanza! All now £5 (offer applies to selected 2 litre and 3 litre shrubs).

All of the shrubs listed below grow in most well-drained soils. We recommend planting in Coolings Rose, Tree & Shrub Compost and adding slow-release food.

If you live locally, one of our Coolings team members will deliver your Shrub Bonanza order straight to your door from just £3.99. See our delivery information here.
