With the combination of fine sunshine followed by generous amounts of rainfall over the last week or two, the garden is now beginning to come alive, what I do notice on my travels is the lack of herbacious perennials flowering in many back gardens. Bulbs such as the Daffoldils, Muscari, Primroses and Bluebelles seem to be prominent in most gardens right now but I would like you to consider adding a few others to your borders to fill the gap between now and the bedding season, which coincides with the beginning of the dramatic herbaceous season June-sept.
Here is a list of my top 10
in no particular order;
Doronicum orientale, Camassia Leichtinii, Dicentra Spectablilis, Primula Dendriculata, Matteuccia struthiopteris (Ostrich Heather fern), Pulmoniaria Blue Ensign, Primula Veris (Cowslip) and Pulsitilla Vulgaris (Rubra ), Iberis Sempervivens (Perennial Candytuft) and Aubretia (Purple cascade).
They are good to buy and plant now.
So go to it!
