Artemisia absinthium 'Lambrook Silver' (Wormwood)

Artemisia absinthium ‘Lambrook Silver’ (Wormwood) was £6.99 now £3.99
Position: full sun Soil: well-drained, fertile soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: July-August Flower colour: greyish-yellow Hardiness: fully hardy Primarily grown for its attractive foliage, which is softly hairy and has a fern-like quality, this beautiful semi-evergreen perennial will also produce clusters of small, yellowish flowering from mid- to late summer. It is said to produce the most silvery foliage of all the cultivated wormwoods, so it makes a super accent in the border, mixing well with most shades of pinks, purples and plums. It makes an excellent edging plant for a sunny border, or if kept neatly clipped a useful addition to the parterre. To flourish happily, it will need a sheltered spot with plenty of sun and a freely draining soil. Garden care: Cut back stems to approximately 15cm in mid- mid-spring, and again after flowering to encourage fresh new foliage to grow. If grown just for its foliage, remove the emerging flowerstems as soon as they appear. Apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around base of the plant in autumn and avoide excessive winter wet.

Traditional long handled bulb planter

Traditional long handled bulb planter was £49.99 now £29.99
Unanimously voted ‘Best Tool for the Job’ by our gardening team, this is the toughest long-handled bulb planter we have found. It slices cleanly through the ground, and then removes the soil ‘plug’ leaving a hole that is ready for the bulb to be dropped into before being covered over again. The bulb planter has a generous 7cm diameter head, so it can be used for planting all sizes of bulbs, and it even has a measuring guide, which comes in handy if you want to plant at a certain depth. Finely crafted from stainless steel with an FSC ash handle, the entire planter measures 1m tall. Easy to use in even the toughest of soils.
