Product Information

This incredibly colourful, strong-growing perennial collection will transform your garden this year into a wonderful wash of cottage-garden inspired colour. It will provide an amazing display of showy flowers, foliage and long-lasting structure to your garden with colour commencing in late May and continuing all summer long until late October – a brilliant display lasting 6 months!

Each of these fantastic plants has been carefully chosen to provide amazing displays from late May right through to late October, so you can really add colour, impact and structure to your garden all spring and summer long! You’ll get 12 different varieties that are bursting with vigour and vivid colour, delivered nursery-fresh straight to your door, ready to thrive in your garden for years to come.

When in full colour, they will attract all manner of beneficial insects in to your garden including butterflies, ladybirds and honey bees to your garden – perfect for nature lovers and fruit and veg gardeners where pollination is so important!

Main varieties Included (but not guaranteed): Achillea 'Summer Berries', Delphinium 'Pacific Giant Mix', Digitalis (Foxglove) 'Dalmation Mixed', Hollyhocks 'Chaters Double Mixed', Coreopsis 'Early Sunrise', Gaillardia 'Mesa Mix', Geum 'Lady Stratheden', Aquilegia 'Mrs Scott Elliot', Alchemilla mollis, Campanula 'Blue Bells', Verbena bonariensis, Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm'.

Due to their very hardy nature, these are perfect for gardeners with little experience or time, or anybody who wants something reliable that will flourish again and again. These can be grown in beds, borders, pots, or containers, and many of the bright blooms make excellent cut flowers that can be brought indoors too. Each one will die back in autumn, only to return with bigger, better displays the following spring!

Care Information

  • For most jumbo plug plant collections, the “mini Greenhouse” they are packed in will have a label on the outside, listing the individual varieties inside. We recommend writing your own labels out on receipt!
  • Give your plugs a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When you're ready to pot on, use a good quality, multi-purpose compost, and fill 3-4in pots (7-10cm).
  • Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or your finger, then holding each plug by its root ball, place it into the hole and gently firm the compost around it.
  • For great results, we recommend using our Windowsill Planters or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Grow on either on a bright windowsill or a greenhouse for 3-4 weeks before potting up into containers or into flower beds.
  • If planting directly into flower beds when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
