With this blessed damp period, it is ideal time to plant perennials. The only question is which ones. having planted up many gardens in the last 12 years of running this business, I have like any gardener, developed a group of signature perennials, which for me are best value for long season of flowering, ease of cultivation, ease of division or self seeding and actually combone beautifully together.
Aster Frikartii Monch
Hellenium satins early
Anthemis tinctora EBuxton
rudbekia Fulgida goldstrum
others in contention
Sedum Spectablile autumn joy
Salvia Nemorosa May night
geranium Johnsons blue
And last and not least…a filler annual guarenteed to provide wow factor from its pure white blooms which if you deadhead regularly will flower from June to Sept the stunning Cosmos Bipinnatus sonata mix white…only 2′ but reliable and a worth planting en mass flowing throught the others.
also buy at least three of each of the top 5 buying 5 works better, they will bed down flower well this year and apart from the verbena which will self seed if left, all will gain mass and be dividable after only one or two years.if you want to see them in action have a look at somoe of my photographs from Chantry Road and Russell road jobs on the website..
Let me know how you get on. I love recieving feedback!
