Camassia Season 2022

Camassia Season 2022

We are proud to be the National Collection Holder of Camassia

Our Potted Camassia Bulbs are now available to purchase until the end of February 2022.

If you’re new to growing Camassia or you want to increase the different varieties you already have you’ll be sure to find some here to delight & tempt you.

Camassia can be grown in full sun but we prefer to grow them in transient or dappled shade simply because the firework display of their starry-like blooms will last a little longer - full sun tends to put an end to the blooms way too quickly for our liking!

Camassia are hardy bulbous perennials & the best time to plant them in dry bulb form is September to November in reliably moist soil. If you miss out on ordering our Potted Camassia Bulbs now (available until the end of February 2022), our Camassia Bulb List for delivery Autumn 2022 will become available as of the 1st of April 2022.  

Oh, and slugs & snails don’t touch Camassia either! What’s not to love!

 

If you are lucky enough to live close to us in North Yorkshire, you are welcome to contact us to collect your order from our nursery, and save on postage & packaging. Do get in touch!
