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

Astrantia major 'Primadonna' NCG 350 Astrantia major 'Primadonna'

Currently unavailable

This astrantia has deep, purple-red blooms. These seeds were sourced externally and I am sure the picture provided had been badly doctored! So I have further edited it to give a better impression of the colour to be expected. I will take my own pictures when my sown seeds produce…

Clustered bellflower, Dane's blood

Clusters of deep-blue bell-shaped flowers on straight stems from early summer. A very pretty plant, but spreads by underground runners and can be rather invasive, so position carefully.

Note: Bare-rooted plants, when on offer, may look a little untidy, particularly early in the year. Don't worry - they will establish…

A tall, stately campanula, pale blue/lilac or white. Makes a dynamic statement at the back of the border and is also lovely cut flower if you can bear to remove it from the garden! Masses of blooms on stems up to 2m high. Much in demand by visitors to the…

A typical cottage garden plant, this campanula, with its papery, nodding white bells on tall, straight stems above low-growing foliage, is perfect for the middle of the border and is particularly effective if planted en masse.

Bellflower 'Kent Belle'

Nodding heads of deep-violet narrow, tubular flowers adorn this attractive campanula. Will probably not always come true from seed, but my experience with another campanula with similarly shaped flowers (Campanula takesimana) is that collected seeds are are likely to produce plants with blooms of a similar shape and habit, though…

This very attractive grass, 12 inches high and 12-18 inches in diameter, forms a soft tussock of very narrow, chestnut-red leaves in spring.

This wildflower has been a popular garden plant for generations. Rich blue with a reddish-purple centre, it makes a good cut flower for smaller arrangements and posies.
