    Achillea millefolium 'Lilac Beauty'

    The whole achillea family are taking the floristry world by storm. They are loved for their open, airy plateaux, more substantial than umbellifers, but serving a similar role in the garden and vase.

    Agapanthus 'Twister'

    Bi-colour agapanthus can sometimes be less hardy that single-colour forms, but not this one, as it is deciduous so is more suited to our winters. It produces masses of open trumpet flowers in white and pale blue and, like all agapanthus, is ideal for a hot, dry summer bed as it doesn't need lots of…

    Agastache 'Black Adder'

    The whole agastache, or hyssop family are massively on the up in garden fashion and rightly so. They flower for months, are highly aromatic, have delicious edible flowers and with this variety, as it goes over, cut it right back for beautiful fresh domes of foliage into winter.

    Clematis 'Petit Faucon'

    This is a non-clinging variety that will happily scramble up through shrubs and hedgerows. Use the deep indigo flowers for vases as this one is really good for cutting.

    Dark and Rich Alstroemeria Collection

    I was bowled over by these in our alstroe trials last summer and autumn. If pulled (like rhubarb), not cut, they just keep on flowering and then last 3 weeks in the vase. We love to hate alstroes, but you can't say that about this rich and exotic, hot off the breeding bench trio. This collection…

    From the very long-flowering, highly scented new 'Cocktail' series of dianthus that we trialled and were impressed by at Perch Hill last year.

    Dianthus barbatus 'Green Wicky'

    The whopping, spiky football-like heads of this petalless sweet William make this one of my favourite foliage plants. Along with Dianthus 'Green Trick', this makes a great evergreen pot filler for winter and spring. With green domes twice the size of 'Green Trick' it's a tip-top cut flower too.

    Echinacea 'Supreme Cantaloupe'

    It's how this echinacea fades that makes it exceptionally lovely - these double, gymkhana-rosette style echinaceas are some of my new favourite things. We now have lots in our perennial cutting garden, where they thrive without overcrowding and have a vase life of over 2 weeks.

    Echinacea x hybrida 'Sombrero Hot Coral'

    An incredible crowd-pleaser whose flowers open coral and then deepen to vermillion. Plant right at the front of a border, or in a perennial pot and keep picking for the house too. It lasts 2-3 weeks in a vase.
