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

Common Yarrow, Milfoil

A plant of many names! It has variously been called, Devil's Nettle, Hundred-leaved Grass, Lace Plant, Milfoil, Nose Pepper, Nosebleed, Sanguinarya and Soldier's Woundwort (to name just a few), some clearly referring to its medicinal properties, others to its appearance. Whilst many cultivars are available, this wild flower is white…

Sneezewort 'The Pearl'

'The Pearl' produces sprays of small, white, double flowers on wiry stems about 24 inches/60cm high, with narrow, toothed leaves. A spreading plant which is not too difficult to control in lighter soils. The blooms tend to last longer if the plant is sited in part shade, but full sunlight…

Autumn Snowflake

Very special - plants now available!

Little white nodding bells on slender, red stems appear from late summer above bright-green, grass-like foliage. This is an attractive and unusual plant for the front of the border.

Alcea rosea 'Summer Carnival' NCG 303 Alcea rosea 'Summer Carnival'
Hollyhock, 'Summer Carnival'

Currently unavailable

Beautiful full, double blooms in a variety of colours make this a must-have for the cottage garden! These are very tall plants and some support is recommended. Cut back after first flowers are almost spent to encourage new, albeit shorter, flower spikes. Will often flower in the first year if…

Although strictly speaking a perennial, this very popular cottage…

Alchemilla alpina NCG 585 Alchemilla alpina
Alpine lady's mantle

Sold out for now

My favourite alchemilla - the delicate, deeply cut, silver edged leaves of this small plant are altogether more refined than those of other varieties. Lovely at the front of the border and useful in containers. Sprays of tiny yellow-green flowers on wiry stems appear in spring and summer.

Allium vineale NCG 401 Allium vineale
Crow garlic

Currently unavailable

Although crow garlic is often considered a weed (the bulbils produced at the tip of the stems fall to the ground and can cause it to spread rather too eagerly!), if you don't have space to grow proper garlic but would like to add a hint of fresh garlic to…

Alstroemeria Ligtu Hybrids NCG 610 Alstroemeria Ligtu Hybrids
Seed 1 packet - 12 seeds

Anemopsis californica NCG 296 Anemopsis californica
Lizard Tail, Yerba Mansa

Currently unavailable

A spring-flowering plant, having a cone of inflorescences surrounded by 4-9 white bracts which look like petals. This plant needs moisture and should always have its feet in water, so is a good choice as a marginal pond plant. It has many uses, ranging from herbal to crafts (for instance,…

Mayweed, Golden Marguerite, Dyer's Chamomile

With its masses of creamy-yellow daisy-like flowers on wiry stems with finely divided aromatic foliage, this drought-tolerant plant is a bright and cheerful choice for dry areas, although it will be happy in most soils. Cut back hard in the autumn to encourage strong new shoots in the spring. The…

Granny's Bonnet - White

There is a large clump of the single white variety of this familiar and much loved cottage garden plant established behind the pond, and it often self seeds true, so I am confident that the seeds on offer will produce white plants, though there could be some cross-pollination. The foliage…

Italian arum 'Marmoratum', Variegated Cuckoopint, Lords-and-Ladies

Beautiful plant for shade!

The boldly marbled, arrow-shaped leaves appear in autumn and last right through most of the year. Seedlings may look unpromising at first, but as the plants grow the leaves develop their beautiful markings. Plant under trees to light up dark areas. When plants are on offer they are usually self…

Goatsbeard, Goat's Beard

Resembling an astilbe, but larger and more vigorous, this stunning plant gives a wonderful display of creamy-white, feathery flower plumes in late spring to early summer. The flowers retain their freshness longer in more shady areas, but the plant will also perform well in full sun. Well deserving of the…

Masterwort 'Sunningdale Variegated'

Wonderful spring foliage!

This lovely astrantia produces masses of the usual pincushion blooms, which are pink with green tinges. But it really comes into its own in early spring, when the young foliage has strong white and green variegation. The white changes to cream and then yellow as the season progresses, and eventually…

Masterwort 'Shaggy' (a.k.a. 'Margery Fish')

This astrantia form, with its white pincushion blooms, which are tinted green, is happy in shade and is said to repel slugs, so try planting near hostas. Makes a very good cut flower which lasts well and also can usually be successfully dried for winter arrangements. Although harvested from plants…

Sold out for now

A variation on one of the most recognisable and popular cottage garden plants, 'Sunset Buff' produces double (and perhaps the occasional single) flowers in soft, peachy tones with red backs.
