Welcome to the Norfolk Cottage Garden Seeds & Plants Shop This is an alphabetical listing of the Red Pink cottage garden plants you selected.

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.

Littleleaf Lilac

A diminutive version of the familiar lilac, with small leaves and loose, sweetly-scented clusters of tiny, purple-pink flowers in spring. More often than not, flowers continue to appear throughout the summer and into early autumn. Although best sited in full sun, it will generally cope well with part shade. More info...
