Cottage Garden Perennial collection (60 large plug plants)

Cottage Garden Perennial collection (60 large plug plants) was £24.99 now £19.99
Position: full sun Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil Rate of growth: average to fast-growing Flowering period: June to July Hardiness: fully hardy A great way to bulk up your perennial borders, these large plug plants are useful for adding height as well as colour. This collection contains 60 large plug plants – 20 of each of the following. Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 – 7 cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They can be grown on or planted straight out into the garden after the risk of frost has passed. Alcea ‘Chaters Double Mixed’ From rounded buds, many-petalled flowers open upwards from the base of the sturdy, upright stems. The blooms are attractive to bees and other beneficial insects and are particularly ornamental. Grows to 2.5m. Delphinium ‘Guardian Mixed’ Relatively compact in habit, these stout delphiniums are now widely grown by cut-flower specialists, because of their ability to bloom so quickly after being transplanted. They are however equally useful in the border, providing magnificent colums of colour for several weeks from early summer. Grows to 1.2m. Digitalis ‘Dalmatian Mixed’ A breakthrough in breeding has produced these new ‘Dalmatian’ foxgloves, which will usually flower in their first year. They form tidy clumps of foliage, but it is for the wonderful spires of thimble-like flowers that open upwards from the base of the spike in summer, that they are best-loved. Grows to 60cm. Please note that as we grow these for especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. See above for despatch dates for this particular plant. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.

Lily cloche

Lily cloche was £34.99 now £29.99
The shape of these cloches was inspired by the traditional lily cloche used in early Spring to protect tender young lily shoots that can be damaged by frost. The cloches are constructed from glass panels held in a tent shape over young plants by a brass frame work coated with an antique patina. They are perfect for use outdoors as they will age well creating a lovely but also useful detail in the garden. We offer this item in two sizes: Small: Height 29cm Length 40cm Width 28.5cm Large: Height 29cm Length 59.5cm Width 28.5cm
