The Autumn Jewells collection has been carefully bred to be compact and bushy with masses of good-sized flowers, the perfect combination for today’s gardens, providing a bold splash of colour late into the autumn.

Forming a sturdy clump, these fully winter-hardy perennials perform brilliantly as a central feature in containers or in the middle of borders for reliable, no-fuss colour year on year.

They're loved by butterflies and bees, making them perfect for wildlife gardens.

Care Information

  • These fully-hardy perennials are perfect in both borders and pots.
  • Select a site with full to partial sun, preferable where there is shelter from midday sun.
  • Plant in moist but well-drained soil with added organic matter such as well-rotted compost or manure.
  • The best time to plant out young asters is in mid- to late spring when the danger of frost has passed.
  • Space asters 30cm (1ft) apart and give them plenty of water at the time of planting.
  • Add mulch after planting to keep soil cool and moist and to prevent weeds.
  • Cut back to the ground in early winter as plants begin to die back. Mulch after cutting back.
  • To maintain vigour, divide every 3 years.
