Sanguisorba officinalis 'Red Thunder'

Sanguisorba officinalis 'Red Thunder'

Burnet

Price: £6.50

Unusual maroon bobbles on tall, slender stems make a delicate addition to a border and add height and movement without swamping or blocking views of plants behind it. Use in a similar way as you would Verbena bonariensis. It looks great planted with grasses in a prairie style scheme and is really hardy and easy to grow. Delicate, lush green, fern-like foliage forms dense, low mounds. the tall flower spikes are sent up in summer and the dark red, tightly packed flower heads bloom from June to September.  Read More...

Small Scabious

Small Scabious

Scabiosa columbaria

Price: £4.95

Large, pale lilac-blue flower heads on slender stems with the characteristic pincushion centres that are loved by bumblebees and a wide variety of butterflies. So pretty in drifts in a meadow and due to its shorter, more compact habit, ideal for attracting wildlife in the front of a sunny border. Can be confused with Field Scabious as the flowers are very similar but, Small Scabious is shorter, more slender and less hairy. Height to 60cm (2ft). Hardy perennial. Flowers June - October.

White Campion

White Campion

Silene latifolia subsp. alba

Price: £4.95

Richly scented white flowers in loose clusters open in the afternoon and at night to attract pollinating moths from May - October. An erect native, hairy perennial of roadsides and wasteland that is perfect for naturalising in a meadow or planted in large clumps in a 'wild' cottage border. If planted with Red Campion, it will hybridise to produce Pink Campion. Its impressively long flowering period and delicious light scent make this a must-have for any wildflower garden. A short-lived perennial, living for only a few years but they will self-seed quite readily if allowed so this is not a problem. Dead-heading will prevent this. Happy in any soil in any situation in sun or part shade. Doesn't mind mowing once established. Read More...

Wild Columbine

Wild Columbine

Aquilegia vulgaris

Price: £4.95

The woodland version of the cottage garden favourite. Lacey foliage is grey/blue green and very decorative, sending up startling violet-blue nodding flowers with a distinctive hooked spur, on tall spikes from May to July. Unlike its cultivated cousins, the Wild Columbine is extremely drought tolerant and would prefer a well-drained spot in the garden. So pretty when naturalised under trees with red campions but, equally earns a place in any border for its brilliant blue flowers and real hardiness. A great plant for shade. Read More...

Wild Strawberry

Wild Strawberry

Fragaria vesca

Price: £2.50

The tiny scarlet fruits of the Wild Strawberry, which appear from May-July, have a far superior flavour to any other strawberry as though being small has somehow concentrated the stawberryness! They are excellent for decorating summer desserts and cakes and I always sprinkle a few in the champagne for summer barbecues. I always grow a few extra as they are brilliant for children, who will graze happily on them all day, keeping them away from my more valuable main crop! They are a plant of open woods and sunny banks in the wild and are extremely hardy. Give them a little bit of sun and a bit of room to spread about. Alternatively, why not try growing in a pot for easier picking! Read More...

Wild Thyme

Thymus praecox

This is our British native species of Thyme (and our namesake!). A charming evergreen groundcover with a creeping habit. Equally useful in the kitchen garden where its aromatic leaves are used in Mediterranean dishes and as an ornamental between paving stones or grown in a flowering lawn. Prefers a sunny, well-drained site and is drought tolerant once established. Whorls of pretty pale pink flowers smother the plant in summer and are adored by bees. Read More...

Yellow Pimpernel

Yellow Pimpernel

Lysimachia nemorum

Price: £3.00

A cousin of the more well known annual, Scarlet Pimpernel, this hardy perennial is an absolute gem for growing on heavy clay soil in shade. Its bright yellow star-like flowers track the sun across the sky and bring a glimmer of sunshine to that tricky part of the garden where nothing will grow. An incredibly long flowering period ( May - September ) and its leafy evergreen, mat-forming habit, make this an excellent ground-cover choice. And proves, in our book, that small really can be beautiful. Incredibly easygoing and trouble-free. Dislikes too much lime. Read More...
