    Acidanthera murielae (syn. Gladiolus murielae)

    The Victorians loved Acidanthera murielae (a cousin of the gladiolus) for cut flowers and it's easy to see why. It has a wonderful scent and lasts brilliantly in the vase. It has become my staple autumn flower for cutting, that I couldn't be without. One of the best statuesque and scented flowers…

    Agapanthus inapertus subsp. pendulus 'Graskop'

    Incredible for its dark, almost black buds, held upright and rising about a foot above the foliage. As the flowers open, they become more pendulous and turn a dark violet purple. This is often regarded as a florist's variety but is an easy garden plant, performing best in a sunny, well-drained…

    Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Sterling Silver'

    An invaluable true-blue soft cloud of a plant, brilliant for coming into flower as much in the garden goes over. Use it as you might spring-flowering rosemary - on the edge of a terrace, around some steps or by a door. It's aromatic too.

    Clematis 'Taiga'

    A spectacular, showy clematis which looks like a passion flower, but is hardier and easier to grow. I love this for picking too, it's stem ends seared and then its flowers floated in a large shallow bowl.

    In a container on your garden table or terrace this will do well as a summer plant, or year-round as an evergreen houseplant. Its flowers are the most magnificent shade of blue, shaped like butterflies.

    Crimson Perennial Pot Collection

    The calyx of this wonderful salvia matches the heart of the scented pelargonium leaves to crown a low maintenance pot for all of summer and autumn. We loved this pairing so much we redid it last summer adding in trailing Thunbergia 'African Sunset' in alternate pots; a great success too.

    Diascia personata

    This is the diascia which won me over to this family with simple, open-faced, mini, almost foxglove-like spires. This variety is reilably perennial if given frost protection and flowers for six months. We now use it in our borders as well as pots - hugely recommended.

    Gaillardia 'Apricot Honey'

    More compact than other gaillardias but almost lovelier for it, arching gracefully from the middle of a summer border with large, soft apricot flowers. It's also very good in a large container with its neat, upright bushy habit and long-flowering season.
