Our Pulmonarias take centre stage


We were delighted that Vanessa was interviewed and widely quoted in this article about Pulmonarias in the Mail Online. Here is an extract from the article

“Jewels of January: Pulmonarias will give your garden a shot of colour till spring arrives – and provide nectar for the bees

  • Pulmonarias grow so freely; some regard them as little more than weeds
  • In medieval times it was believed they could be used to treat lung diseases
  • Other names for them include spotted dog and beggar’s basket

Vanessa Cook, whose beautiful garden and nursery at Stillingfleet Lodge in Yorkshire has an extensive collection of pulmonarias, says, ‘They are so easy to grow, they flower early and they grow happily in shade. I really don’t know why pulmonarias aren’t more popular. I think some people are put off because the leaves can get a bit mildewy, but all you do is cut off the affected leaves and the plant will look great again.'”

Pulmonaria at Stillingfleet

We have a large selection of pulmonarias for sale in our plant nursery, take a look at the catalogue of pulmonarias.

Although we are currently closed, you can email an order through to us at and arrange to collect the plants at a mutually convenient time.

As our plants are available on a collection only basis, it allows us to grow our plants in larger size pots than many nurseries; most are in 1 litre pots and any plants over 3′ are sold in at least a 2.5 litre pot.
