Penlan Perennials opened in 1998 on an 14 acre smallholding in the Ceri Valley, near Newcastle Emlyn in West Wales. In 2010 the nursery relocated to a new site, just a few miles from its original location, in North Pembrokeshire. Plants are 'hard grown' outside in open stock beds, or in a netted shade tunnel so are ultra hardy, used to heavy winter rainfall and sub-zero temperatures. Our plants are raised in an environmentally friendly way, using peat-free compost with no chemical sprays or artificial fertilisers, and the nursery is now fully organic. Recycled materials are used for packaging and these can be recycled again by you. The photo below is a typical (1.5 litre) mail order plant sent out by us with a 30cm (1ft) ruler for comparison.
Finally ~ We always try to maintain the quality of plants and standard of service we feel you have a right to expect. The person you speak to on the phone or who answers your email is the same person that grows your plants, nurtures them, does the paperwork and dispatches your order!
