Description

I’ll never forget the day Jonathan Buckley and I took this photograph — in a coppiced clearing, deep in a wood in Kent, wild Granny’s bonnets as far as you could see. I’ve grown it in the oast garden here ever since and in the dappled shaded areas of our wildflower meadow.

Care Tips

Deadhead regularly to extend flowering and encourage further blooms. Also deadhead if you do not wish to self-seed.
