Welcome to the Norfolk Cottage Garden Seeds & Plants Shop This is an alphabetical listing of the Plants 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.

Indian Pokeweed, Inkberry, Pidgeonberry

Although invariably referred to as American pokeweed (P. americana), the variety seen in UK gardens is almost certainly Indian pokeweed (P. asinosa Syn. esculenta). Both look very similar, but P. acinosa has vertical upright inflorescences, whilst P. americana has lax flower stems, single spherical fruits rather than clusters - and…
