Description

This was a huge success for us at Perch Hill providing oodles of colour and a valuable nectar source for pollinators. The pops of colour from the armeria were wonderful. And many of the plants included are perennial so go from strength to strength.

Care Tips

Remove weeds, otherwise just leave the meadow to grow. Cut annually in late winter/early spring to let light in and encourage self-sowing.
