For example, Mandy Plants are based in Norfolk, selling tender and hardy perennials. Primrose Bank Nursery, based near York, is run by husband-and-wife team, Terry and Sue Goodwill.

“They are regular exhibitors at all the big shows around Yorkshire including the Great Yorkshire Show and the Harrogate Flower Shows.

“They sell an interesting collection of hardy herbaceous perennials, small unusual shrubs and some alpines. Even closer to home are Middlemoor Plants are based in Hudswell – not a million miles from Kiplin. Another husband-and-wife team with Sharon in charge at the shows.

“They sell traditional and cottage garden favourites, hardy perennials and some plants in containers.”
