Ordered 60 Pearlwort plugs in mid-July as a low maintenance alternative to grass. Packaging and protection was excellent and plugs were in superb condition. I split each plug into 4 and planted directly into the soil which had been well prepared beforehand. The somewhat warmer summer meant more frequent watering to ensure the plugs settled into place. By next summer I anticipate the soil between the stepping stones in the garden to be completely filled with pearlwort. It is planted in direct sun and deeply shaded areas but all are growing and spreading well. Most of the plugs flowered and the spread has been quite amazing. Because of the layout, a lawnmower or strimmer would not fit so an alternative had to be found. Victoriana Nursery provided the perfect solution - a low maintenance grass alternative which also produces small white flowers. Everyone who sees it loves the look and the idea of no real maintenance. Victoriana Nursery has a range of unusual plants so I will definitely be after future purchases and spreading the word to those who are curious or are 'green fingered'. Great value for money. Keep the area weed free as the plants spread and weeds will be a thing of the past.

Pollinator FriendlyRHS Award of Garden Merit

An aromatic flavoured russet apple with a flushed appearance. The creamy white flesh of the fruits is both firm and juicy. Freshly picked fruits can be a little tart but they mellow with storage - and this is an excellent variety for storage.

Originally this was named 'Winter King', but was renamed in 1944 (perhaps as a tribute to Winston Churchill?).

  • Season of use October-April.
  • First introduced 1900, Berkshire.
  • Self-fertile - but pollination by another apple will maximise yield.
  • Grown on M26 rootstock for an ultimate (unpruned) height of 8-12ft (2.4-3.65m) but can easily be kept at a height of 6-8ft (1.8-2.4m). 

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
