Sedum 'Blue Pearl'  (Sunsparkler Series) (PBR) (stonecrop)

Sedum ‘Blue Pearl’ (Sunsparkler Series) (PBR) (stonecrop) was £7.99 now £6.99
Position: full sun Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil Rate of growth: average to fast-growing Flowering period: August to September Hardiness: fully hardy The colour of the fleshy foliage is reason enough to grow this drought-tolerant sun-lover, as it is a dusky shade of purple that intensifies as the summer progresses, providing a beautiful contrast to silvers and pinks. This plant is also valuable though for its long flowering season, producing small clusters of bright pink blooms, which are irrisistable to butterflies, bees and other pollinating insects. A great little plant for the front of the border or pot. Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Once established, sedums can have a tendency to flop leaving an open and unsightly centre, especially in fertile soil. One technique to help prevent this is the ‘Chelsea chop’. During the last week of May (Chelsea Flower Show week), cut one in every three stems back to the ground. This will produce plants that are less lush and flower slightly later.

Gladiolus Callianthus (60 bulbs)

Gladiolus Callianthus (60 bulbs) £5.9900
Voted summer flowering bulb of the year for 2014 ! Gladiolus Callianthus (acidanthera) is a beautiful and unusual gladioli with white flowers and purple centres. Growing to around 75cm in height, it will produce its beautiful fragrant blooms in August / September. Gladioli like a well-drained, moisture retentive soil in full sun and protected from strong winds. Good for borders and as cut flowers. Dual planting is recommended; one for the garden and one for cut flowers. For the best effect, plant in clusters of 5 or more. Gladioli need water during the growing period and mulching with compost will help conserve moisture. Staking can be necessary; after the buds are formed, place canes or stakes at about 5cm from the base of the stems to avoid damaging the corms. In very cold areas, lift after flowering and store frost free over winter. Planting some corms every few weeks from April to June will ensure flowers from summer to autumn.
