PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Hesperis matronalis
Sweet rocket
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period Late Spring - early Summer
Height 24-36in/.60-90cm
Light preference Sun

Sowing time/depth Autumn or Spring,
This sweet-scented, short-lived perennial attracts bees and other pollinating insects and is therefore perfect for naturalising in a wildlife-friendly garden. The loose heads of small flowers range in colour from almost white, through pale lilac to mauve. A perfect plant for the informal cottage garden. Also a good cut flower.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Best sown direct in autumn or spring, but can also be raised in pots or modules for planting out later.
