The most popular variety of agapanthus (African Blue Lily), with the deepest-blue bells on blue-black stems – glamorous and dramatic.
A beautiful and delicately scented iris, which will add a stately elegance to a sunny border.
Huge heads in a purist white with elegant, long-lasting seed pods too. An unusual variety with extra large and many-petalled heads.
Marvellous spring-flowering, ground-carpeting beauty for a dappled shady corner. Spreads steadily.
No summer border is complete without its fair share of delphiniums – the most statuesque towering spires for any garden.
One of the most scented flowers in my garden. It flowers from spring to mid-summer and is one of my favourite things to put – a few short stems – by my bed, to fill the whole room with its incredible fragrance. Easy to grow and unmissable.
A super-tough, long-flowering variety that is resistant to droughts and avoided by rabbits and slugs.
A rare form of acanthus with pure white flowers on silvery-green spires. Extremely elegant, bright and ghostly and invaluable for thriving in a north facing border.
