Mires Beck Nursery

Mires Beck Nursery started over 20 years ago as a small nursery specialising in the production of wildflowers of Yorkshire provenance. Over the years the nursery has continued to grow steadily, developing the range of plants produced.



The Willows Garden Centre and Cafe

The Willows is a Garden Centre, Cafe and Deli in the Lincolnshire village of Glentham, near Market Rasen. Approx 13 miles from Caistor.

We visited the garden centre recently and were impressed by the condition of the plants and the general set up. All the staff are so helpful. The cafe is amazing, I love the furniture. The food was very nice and again the staff very helpful.

Well worth an afternoon out!

Hi, have Mrs Geoffrey Howard 3/4 years, 1st time flowering very sparse semi shade. Any info please.

Lauri Fox 29.10.2015 19.15

Hi Sue, Try moving it into the sun, this is one that does not really like part shade. Also plant 3to4 inches deep with a mulch on top.

Hello, I've just started to collect some seeds from my Lucifer, should I let them all dry out, & could I grow them on the windowsill early next year. Regards.

Richard Morton | Reply 19.09.2015 12.01

Hi, Fantastic website! What is the earliest hardy crocosmia? What is the earliest hardy small crocosmia?

Lauri Fox 19.09.2015 20.36

Hello, Thank You! The earliest on the market would be c.Lucifer. There is no early small crocosmia as they soon all follow rapidly to bloom. Lauri

Hi. I have been given some plants that I was told were crocosomia. The flowers are bright pink. Are there any pink crocosomia? Thank you.

lauri fox 13.09.2015 12.15

No there are no true pink ones, but if you can send a pic we can ID it for you.

Hi I like your site. Very interesting, but I would like to be able to turn off the music. I searched the home page to no avail.

Tim Badley 04.07.2015 20.32

Thank you very much Patrick.....

Hi Fiona......... Its not the roots that will be the problem, its the stacking of the corms(bulbs), they grow on top of each other..... but yes 12" should be ok
