Josie, our head gardener’s favourite rose in a beautiful copper brown and it flowers until October.
Opens purple and then fades to a smoky blue with satin petals and a soft scent.
A classic China rose which flowers on and off for six months. It’s name comes from the Latin for changing – opening pink and fading to apricot. A top border filler favourite at Perch Hill.
Have you got some steps, paths or walls you want softening with curtains of daisies? That's exactly what this wonderful plant is for.
The deepest, loveliest blue in our forget-me-not trials this spring. Sear the stem end for 10 seconds and it lasts 10 days in a vase.
An excellent rose for a pot, with white pom-pom shaped flowers. It's a repeat flowerer – you can have blooms from June to October.
The leaves of Cyclamen coum are almost as handsome and invaluable as the flowers – brilliant for carpeting under shrubs and trees and exceptionally long-lived. They will gradually self-sow and naturalise, looking good in your garden for decades.
Flowering right the way through from December to April, this highly scented variety is my favourite pretty and delicate winter and spring flowering viola for a window ledge or outdoor doorstep pots.
A super-tough, long-flowering variety that is resistant to droughts and avoided by rabbits and slugs.
A species rose with brilliant, geranium-red flowers. It produces especially large hips which are as fantastic, if not more so, than the flowers themselves.
