Product Information

Brighten up your garden with these beautiful Asters, flowering throughout summer and into autumn every year with gorgeous, semi-double, yellow-centred daisy blooms.

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.

Blooming over many weeks, asters make great cut flowers, being very long lasting in a vase, and in the garden will attract a whole host of beneficial pollinating insects.
They're loved by butterflies and bees, making them perfect for wildlife gardens.

Easy to grow and low maintenance, the short, compact and bushy plants will not require staking and you can more or less leave them to do their own thing!

This classic collection is supplied as 6 plug plants, two each of Sapphire, Rose Quartz and Purple Diamond. Growing to approx. 35cm x 30cm (14in x 12in) they'll return each year.

Sapphire - Delicate sprays of bright mid blue daisy-like flowers with a bold yellow central disc

Rose Quartz - masses of soft pink flowers with contrasting yellow centres

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.
