Polianthes tuberosa The Pearl (Tuberose) - pack x 10 size 12/14

Polianthes tuberosa The Pearl (Tuberose) – pack x 10 size 12/14 was £14.99 now £7.49
Commonly known as Tuberoses, these amazingly sweet-scented beauties will enchant you in summer, as their beautiful fragrance wafts gently on warm evening breezes. You can see why it is used so much as a base fragrance in leading perfumes !! Tuberoses make a really nice cut flower to scent a room with, or enjoy in pots too. Plant the bulbs indoors in spring to get a head start, and bring outside from May, growing in a warm, sunny spot. They flower in August and September, producing pretty creamy white double flowers, with an intoxicating strong fragrance, on stems about 60-80cm tall. Top tip for success is once flowered, remove this section of the bulbs, as it never flowers again, but leaving new side shoots to flower next year. Bring pots inside each winter for frost-free area, and dry back. Enjoy the allure of your own Tuberose fragrances wafting on evening breeze in your garden.

Tumbelina Petunia Fragrant Collection 12 plug plants was £14.99 now £7.99
Tumbelina Petunias are the original and still the best double, trailing, fragrant petunias.

The varieties in this collection have been chosen for their gorgeous heady perfume which will fill the air wherever you grow them.

They will flower from late May to the first frosts and require only occasional dead-heading to prolong displays. Bred in The UK near Cambridge, they have been rigorously trialled, tested and proven to grow brilliantly in this country in our variable Summers.

Bessera elegans (Coral drops) - pack of  25 bulbs

Bessera elegans (Coral drops) – pack of 25 bulbs was £9.99 now £6.99
This gorgeous little delight called Bessera elegans looks like a cross between an exotically coloured snowdrop and a fuchsia flower, but is known by it’s common name of ‘Coral Drops’. The corms are quite small, but this belies the truly spectacular displays that erupt from them in late Summer. Stems of up to 45cm tall will bear up to 20 individual flowers, each one a lovely coral red colour, with contrasting creamy centres, and often creamy stripes inside the petal – such an unusual colour combination. They work really well planted 7-10 bulbs per 25cm pot, grown in hot sun – we do not suggest growing in the soil in the UK. Feed them well in season with a balanced feed, and they will reward with spectacular displays. They will flower in August into September. They are frost-tender, so after flowering, let the stems die back, but move the pot inside and dry right back until following Spring, when they will grow away in even bigger clumps. They can tolerate a little cold down to -5C, but not Winter wet, and if you do this will reward you with many years of flowering. ‘Coral Drops’ are a delightful little Summer firecracker, and well worth growing for something unusual and rarely offered in the UK.
