CLUNY HOUSE GARDENS SEEDLIST 2020

Cluny House is a wooded garden that faces north-east, gets very little mid-day sun and tends to keep the moisture in the soil for a longer time than normal. None of our plants are protected during the winter and no herbicides or insecticides are used. Have fun choosing which seeds you want and remember that it is always worth trying something new. H = height, S = spread. Please note that MANY plants are poisonous and we would advise that all plant parts resulting from the seed on this list are treated with caution.

Please feel free to pass this seed list to other interested parties.      THANK YOU.
