Welcome to the Norfolk Cottage Garden Seeds & Plants Shop This is an alphabetical listing of the Annuals Biennials cottage garden plants you selected.


 
IMPORTANT NOTE:
At times, especially during the summer, plants may be cut back or pinched out if they are too far advanced to ship whole. This encourages annuals and biennials to produce extra flowering stems, so no bad thing! Perennials will establish well for next year, but may or may not flower this year, depending on species. In some instances top growth may be woody or sparce (e.g. Anthemis tinctoria), but don't worry, the plants are perfectly healthy and will soon produce fresh foliage! Please contact me if you would like to enquire about specific plants.

Lathyrus sativus var. azureus NCG 032 Lathyrus sativus var. azureus
Indian Vetch, Chickling Pea, Grass Pea

Sold out for now

My favourite sweet pea, despite the fact that is has no scent. Rumoured to originate here in the UK from seeds found by Harold Carter, the Egyptologist, in Tutankhamun's tomb, the small flowers are a delicate clear sky-blue, with pink centres. A small plant by sweet pea standards, it looks…

Lavandula multifida NCG 657 Lavandula multifida
Seed 1 packet - 100 seeds approx

£2.95

 
Fernleaf lavender, Oregano-scented Lavender

A fast growing lavender with finely divided grey-green foliage and delicate, deep-purple flowers spikes. A very pretty filler for any sunny spot in the garden. Happily self-seeds. I have classified it as a half-annual because although some sources say it is perennial, in my experience it does not survive UK…

Linum grandiflorum var. rubrum NCG 344 Linum grandiflorum var. rubrum
Seed 1 packet

£1.95

 
Scarlet flax

Like the more familiar blue and white variety, Linum usitatissimum, Scarlet flax produces a profusion of small flowers with a satiny finish, but - as is obvious from the name - they are a rich red. A very worthwhile annual to grow.

Common Flax, Linseed

The delicate flowers of this dainty plant are sky-blue or white, on fine, grey-blue foliage - a delight to see en masse! Ours appeared from nowhere in my hot bed (flax is grown in the fields nearby, so the seeds were, no doubt, brought in by birds). Despite the fact…

Lunaria annua NCG 035 Lunaria annua
Seed 1 packet

£1.95

 
Honesty, Money Plant

An old cottage garden favourite, the seedheads of which are often to be seen in dried floral arrangements. Carefully rub the seed pod (silicles) casings off the dried stems to reveal moon-shine like membranes that give this plant its Latin name. A trouble-free plant that will establish itself happily and…

White-flowered honesty

A white-flowered variation on the old cottage garden favourite, the seedheads of which are often to be seen in dried floral arrangements. Carefully rub the seed pod (silicles) casings off the dried stems to reveal moon-shine like membranes that give this plant its Latin name. A trouble-free plant that will…

Lychnis coronaria atrosanguinea NCG 051 Lychnis coronaria atrosanguinea
Seed 1 packet

£1.95

 
Rose Campion

Contrasting strongly with the soft, grey-green, downy leaves, the mass of vibrant magenta blooms on this popular cottage garden plant will really hit you between the eyes! I have found that if stems are cut right back after the first flush of flowers in spring, the plants will bloom again…

Tomato 'Black Cherry'

This tomato variety produces masses of small, deep, purplish-red to mahoganiy-brown, sweet and juicy fruits. Perfect for the simplest of tomato salads - just slice or quarter and sprinkle on balsamic vinegar, a pinch of salt, plenty of freshly ground pepper and perhaps a little finely sliced red onion scattered…

Tomato 'Brandywine Black' (Heirloom)

New - heirloom variety!

Like other beefsteak tomatoes, this heirloom variety produces large, frequently irregular-shaped fruits, but is unusual in that it has potato-leaved foliage. The tomatoes can vary somewhat in colour, usually a rosy hue, sometimes green-shouldered, but they are renowned for their exceptional flavour.

NOTE: These are externally sourced, organic…

Seed 1 packet - 20 seeds

£1.95

 
Tomato 'Sun Gold'

The small, golden yellow fruits are sweet and juicy. It's just as well that they fruit prolifically, because it is difficult to pass by the greeenhouse in summer without snacking!

Welsh Poppy

This beautiful wild flower has clear yellow flowers - often with crinkled petals - and bright green foliage that lights up dark areas. Ours found their place under the apple trees.

Mimulus, Monkey Flower, mixed

A colourful all-rounder!

A very useful plant for front of borders, baskets and other containers. The flowers are mostly yellow and red, but occasonally orange or cream. Although strictly speaking a perennial, best treated as an annual. For best results, ensure that the plants receive adequate water supplies, and cut back after flowering…

Mina Lobata, Spanish Flag

Recently re-classified as a member of the Ipomoea genus (Ipomoea versicolor) and sometimes referred to as Quamoclit lobata, but still more widely recognised as Mina lobata... whatever you prefer to call it, this stunning half-hardy annual climbing plant is a must! Attractive foliage is followed by spikes of flowers that…

Nasturtium peregrinum NCG 528 Nasturtium peregrinum
Canary creeper

Currently unavailable

This pretty annual climber will happily scramble over fences and trellis, though you may wish to provide some string to help it on its way. The pretty, fringed, yellow flowers appear in profusion during the summer and the lobed, pale-green foliage is also very attractive. Good for hiding eyesores!

A profusion of blooms no more than an inch across, coloured deep purple - almost black - with white edges. A lovely statement at the front of the border or tumbling from hanging baskets and planters.

Shoo-fly plant, Apple of Peru, Peruvian bluebell

Looking very similar to Chinese Lanterns (Physalis alkekengi), but with green/black lanterns rather than the familiar bright orange, and striking black stems, this plant is an annual and although it does seed itself around it is easier to control than Physalis (which multiplies by underground runners and has a tendency…

Seed 1 packet

Flowering tobacco, Jasmine tobacco

The queen of flowering tobacco plants! Taller and more robust than more modern varieties, the tall stems bear masses of pendulous, star-shaped blooms, starting greenish white, fading to cream and then white. Their wonderful fragrance wafts through the garden in the evenings. Highly recommended.

Nicotiana alata Ex. 'Lime Green' AGM NCG 365 Nicotiana alata Ex. 'Lime Green' AGM
Tobacco plant, lime green

Currently unavailable

A most unusual take on the familiar tobacco plant, this variety produces masses of rich, acid-green flowers. Mine are planted in a fairly shady area where they do very well, adding a touch of brightness throughout the summer and well into autumn. A good cut flower if you can bear…
