Hello, I received my gooseberry bush and some Lily of the Valley plants this afternoon. I only placed the order over the weekend, your service is amazing and the plants arrived in good condition (not surprising given the packaging!!) they are already planted and watered well. I can't wait for November and the rest of my order, ever so glad I found your site. Look forward to buying from you again. Thanks, Anne p.s. your shredded paper as a mulch is inspired.

The most exciting new hybridberry for many years; a tayberry without spines.
'Buckingham' is virtually identical in every respect to the original Tayberry except for its spinelessness, and produces consistently high yields of dark red conical fruits that can be up to 2" (5cm) in length. Fruits are best eaten when they have matured past red to a purple colour.
Being later to flower, there is less chance of reduced fruit set / fruit damage in cold years - particularly useful fro Northern gardeners.
These were featured on the BBC Great British Garden Revival presented by Alys Fowler - who came to see us in the Summer to talk about all sorts of berries, and this just happened to be one of her favourites!
