More Plant Belles off to America March 21, 2020 08:00
US update: Our Third shipment left us yesterday (March 20, 2020), this time by air freight, amid the (Coronavirus) uncertainty of air transport restrictions to the US. Safe journey...
Our second shipment of Plant Belles left for America, on a container ship, heading West for the US, in Autumn of 2018.
Assuming the container arrives safely (no pirates or icebergs), the Belles will be available in Spring 2019, from the Detroit Garden Works, Sylvan Lake, Michigan. Very proud.
Our first shipment arrived on US soil in 2016, after the a surreal meeting with the owner and buyer at DGW. Rob arrived at Plant Belles HQ (in a old banger of a car), in outback Mid Devon, unannounced and very unexpected, on a UK buying road trip. The rest is history!

Happy New year from Plant Belles. Whats Happening this new year?
We have a choice selection of shows to attend the year, some new and some old favorites. We will be back at Malvern this Spring (memories of our first ever show, back in 2009), and back at Chelsea (always very exciting and exhausting). New for 2017 will be Loseley Park, Nr Guildford (instead of Wisley) and we will be hobnobbing with the garden design royalty at the Gardens Illustrated festival in the Cotswolds (First show this year, March 25th).
Have a look at the list & links below, hope to see you there. Best wishes for 2017, J & A.

We have been busy beavering away to bring even the elusive George Belles & Belle Towers. Full details of the event and all its activities & tours etc. on the Kew website. I hope you can join us.
