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!

Not just any campion! Low-growing hummocks of furry leaves from which starry flowers in shades of pink raise their heads. Needs some TLC, but much recommended.
This tall, striking aster is exquisite... the picture does not really do it justice. It produces masses of deep-purple, single flowers about 3.5cm in diameter from late summer and well into autumn. It is loved by pollinating insects. Also a good cut flower. Much recommended! I cannot guarantee that seed,…
A lovely woodland plant with a rosette of light-green round, lobed foliage and slender stems bearing insignificant, but nonetheless attractive, downward-pointing bell-shaped flowers down their length, sometimes creamy yellow, sometimes tinged with pink.
Deep pink flower spikes with purple bracts from early summer to autumn, on erect stems rise above crinkled rich green basal foliage. Cut back after first flush to encourage new blooms. Although it prefers moist, free-draining soil, this plant is drought tolerant.
This sweetly vanilla-scented cottage garden plant has masses of small, white to pale-pink flowers on strong, straight stems clothed in attractive, finely divided, bronze foliage. Much loved by bees and other pollinating insects. Highly recommended.
A tall, sculptural plant that ticks all the boxes! The clusters of small, purple flowers, which are borne on the end of strong, branching stems, are a magnet for butterflies, bees and hoverflies. Grow en masse for best effect. Although a perennial, this plant tends to be short-lived, but it…
In summer, spikes of small, pale-blue flowers with striking purple veining appear above rosettes of attractive, glossy foliage. Best grown near the front of the border, where its intricate markings can be best appreciated!
A lovely front of border plant in shades of pale blue and occasionally white. Very easy to grow and flowers for months. Plants can become leggy but this is easily remedied; cut them back to within 3-4 inches of the ground and they will soon regenerate to produce compact plants…
