So easy to grow, they will slowly establish into small clumps, increasing in flower number year after year – it is not uncommon to have upwards of 50 flowers in 5 years.

Million Bells Collection x 12 Jumbo Plug Plants

Million Bells Collection x 12 Jumbo Plug Plants £12.99
Million Bells was aptly named because it smothers itself in a gargantuan quantity of bright trumpet shaped blooms from late April until the first autumn frosts. It has a wonderful compact trailing habit and when in full flush the flower cover will obliterate any sign of the lush green foliage. In most cases the background colour of the gorgeous blooms is lifted by darker veins that accentuate the throat of the trumpet and create an entrancing image in changing light levels. We have found that they are at their best in window boxes and the edge of larger containers where they seem to hug the side of the planter they even look perfect gently tumbling over the edge of raised beds or low walls. We have selected 4 gorgeous bright colours to give the widest selection available these will look tremendous in a mixed basket but also make a great addition to any basket or patio display. If you like tidy planters with maximum flower power this is the perfect plant for you!

Asiatic Lilies mixed x 25 bulbs £9.99
Recent Lily breeding has created some huge and beautifully fragrant Oriental type Lilies, in their pinks and whites, their brighter, bolder and brighter Asiatic cousins seem to have been left out. Not any more… With their beautiful sunshine rays of colours in a range of bold ‘fruit salad shades’ in yellow, berry pink, orange and red, these vibrant and hot tropical colours really light up your hot summer garden. Short and strong enough to grow in pots, yet tall enough to cut armfuls of flowers each summer, they are versatile, and very hardy and easy. Plant en masse in large pots or in groups for maximum impact, or maybe just dot them round your garden to brighten up odd spots. Plant in Spring, and pick in Summer – and again year after year. Great value and easy to do Lilies.
