Whatever the season, we have an abundance of garden shrubs for sale for you to choose from. Shrubs can add interest to a garden all year round. They form the foundation of many English gardens and are highly versatile. Shrubs can provide colour all year when other plants have died down or finished blooming. They are often favoured because they are easy to look after, with most requiring little to no maintenance.
At Beetham Nurseries, we have a wide selection of shrubs available throughout the year. Of course, as with most plants, shrub availability differs throughout the year, but no matter the season, you’ll find shrubs to provide interest and colour in your garden all year round. Some provide interesting flowers; some offer unique leaf colours, and others have colourful winter stems.

Shrubs for the Summer
In the summer months, you need a hardy shrub that can withstand the sun and not much water while producing flowers with plenty of nectar for bees and butterflies. Our favourite easy growing summer shrubs are Hydrangea, Hibiscus, Cotinus, Caryopteris, Potentilla and Buddleia.
With Autumn being known for its beautiful burgundy and yellow backdrop as the leaves start to fall, you can complement the season with a number of beautiful autumn shrubs. Acers and Euonymus Alatus, for example, will give you vivid displays of bright reds, yellows and oranges. Other favourites for providing a striking autumn colour scheme are Cotinus, Prunus, Leucothoe, Fothergilla, Hamamelis and Rhus shrubs.
Shrubs Suitable for the Winter
Winter is usually considered a time when there aren’t many plants and flowers blooming. This doesn’t have to be the case for your garden, though. There are many winter flowering shrubs or shrubs that offer a beautiful stem colour to keep your garden looking alive and interesting throughout the colder months. Our personal favourites are Skimmia Rubella, Corylopsis, Hamamelis, Euonymus, Cornus (coloured stem varieties), Aucuba, Eleagnus and Viburnum Tinus.
