Description

Perch Hill was built on the dream of having my own cutting garden, being able to pick armfuls of flowers from just outside my door. This type of garden was traditionally based around annuals and their ability to rebloom. With modern herbaceous perennials however, it’s a win-win. The varieties grouped together here are reliable repeat bloomers and yet don’t need resowing and replanting year after year. As perennials, they just reappear for easy, time-saving vases. Choose a sunny site and incorporate plenty of organic matter before planting.​

This collection contains 3 x 9cm pots each of:
  • Echinacea purpurea 'Green Twister' - Border middle (75cm/30in)
  • Alstroemeria 'Peaches and Cream' - Border middle to back (90cm/36in)
  • Dianthus barbatus 'Green Wicky' - Border front (45cm/18in)
  • Phlox paniculata 'Blue Paradise' - Border middle (75cm/30in)
  • Scabiosa caucasica 'Fama Deep Blue - Border front to middle (60cm/24in)
  • Verbena bonariensis - Border back (1.8m/6ft)

Care Tips

After planting, water generously for 1-2 weeks so the plants get well established.
