Welcome to the Norfolk Cottage Garden Seeds & Plants Shop This is an alphabetical listing of the Red Pink 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
King Tutankhamun's pea, 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…

Seed 1 packet - 50 seeds approx.

£2.25

 
Pheasant Berry

The stems of this most unusual-looking plant resemble bamboo and are a feature in the winter garden. However, they should be cut back hard in spring to encourage new, bushy growth. The flowers are small, appearing as nodding bunches surrounded by dark-maroon bracts, followed by reddish-brown berries which are not…

Perennial Toadflax

Very pretty!

This delightful plant with its tall spikes of tiny purple or pink flowers resembling miniature snapdragons, which appear from a basal clump of fine, grey-green leaves, is attractive not only to right-minded humans, but to wildlife... it is much loved by butterflies and bees. It flowers from June right through…

Perennial Toadflax. Ex. Pink

Although this pretty plant has both purple and pink varieties, and seeds are available on this website as a mix collected from both colours of plant, I am offering here seed collected only from pink plants. I cannot guarantee that all will come true, but it is likely that more…

Seed 1 x packet (500 seeds approx.)

£1.95

 
Annual toadflax 'Flamenco'

This versatile little annual, which is native to North Africa, but easy to grow in our climate, should be better known! The blooms, which are a striking fuchsia-red with bright yellow lips - looking rather like miniature snapdragons - keep coming for many months in summer. Seldom exceeding 12 in/30…

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.

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…

Lychnis arkwrightii NCG 818 Lychnis arkwrightii
Lychnis Vesuvius

Sold out

A dynamic plant that deserves to be better known! Red-orange flowers appear from June and continue flowering right through until early autumn, above beautiful bronze-green foliage. It has a bushy, dwarf habit, making it good plant for containers. If sown early, under cover, it should flower in the first year.

New - highly recommended!

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…

Burgundy Gooseneck Loosestrife

This short-lived perennial is more usually grown as a biennial, and can be permitted to gently self-seed. The flower spikes are similar in shape to the more widely-known Lysimachia clethroides, but instead of white, the blooms are a rich burgundy colour, contrasting well with small, slightly crinkly, grey-green leaves. Attractive…
