    Potsize - 1L

    Acanthus dioscoridis var. perringii. A short really spiky acanthus for growing in a spot that is warm and dry. Full sun will bring the best flowering when the highly unusual short spikes of hooded flowers can best be appreciated. Differs from Acanthus dioscoridis in the divided nature of the leaves. Flowers pale to deeper pink covered by pink veined hoods. 40cm. A good alternative to the larger species where space is limited.

    Potsize - 1L

    Alstroemeria 'Andez Rose'. 'PERUVIAN LILY. Just like the Alstroemerias you'd buy from the florist but available to pick from your own garden over an amazingly long period. Unlike the old-fashioned Ligtu hybrids, these Alstroemerias are compact, up to 1m, form super non-invasive clumpswhich just seem to go on and on providing flower stems up until the frosts.. They are probably triploid, hence the vigour and do not seed. They want a sunny position in rich well drained ground. Hardy to -10oC, perhaps lower if given a winter mulch to protect the roots. 'Andez Rose' is a rosy pink with the inner petals shaded yellow and cream flecked with brown. The reverses are rosy-red, as are the stamens.

    Potsize - 1L

    Aster 'Lye End Beauty' falls somewhere in-between 'Harrington's Pink' and 'Alma Potschke' in the colour stakes. The narrow petals are a rich, but not strident cerise on their inner surface and a silvery pink on the reverse. With a dark ruff of narrow bracts and rose tinted stems it was certainly well named. Like most novae-angliae types it is relatively tall with long straight stems which may need staking. Grow it well back in the border where it can hide away all summer, revealing its full glory in Autumn as those in front fade and are cut back. A chance seedling which occurred at Lye end in Woking in the 1950's along with several others that are named after the garden. 130-175cm

  • Campanula latiloba ‘Hidcote Amethyst’ Campanula latiloba 'Hidcote Amethyst'

    Potsize - 1L

    Campanula latiloba 'Hidcote Amethyst'. The colour of the flowers of this Campnaula are hard to describe meaningfully They are not the violet of a typical amethyst at all, but likewise not a typical pink. Possibly they are a faded rose with a hint of lavender. No matter; whatever they score on the RHS colour chart there's no doubt they are subtle and lovely. The flowering stems are a bolt upright stem, studded with outward facing saucer-stars like a floral tribute to the PO Tower. When happy it will quickly spread to form a healthy mat of pale apple-green Evergreen foliage. Survives best in a soil that is light and doesn't sit wet in the WInter. Grows well on alkaline soils; sun or shade. 60cm in flower.

    This plant, which still thrives in unimproved wet ground around us in Dorset, causes hot debate in the family when it comes to attributing common names. My Father, a born and bred Dorset farmer, insists they are cuckoo flowers, while my Mother, born on Dartmoor in Devon, calls them Milkmaids. What ever pet name you give them, even if it is Lady's Smock, they are beautiful. evergreen, Spring flowering plants for moist or wet conditions in sun or partial shade. Flore Pleno is a double form with fully double lilac coloured roses. This form sets no seed but can spread by vegetative means in sufficiently moist conditions. In fact meadows of the double form have been reported throughout Europe, although I have never seen a double flowered Cardamine growing in the wild myself. The double form has been recorded since the 1650's. Shorter than the species.

    Cyclamen coum is the other cyclamen commonly grown out of doors in Britain. It is a little fussier than Cyclamen hederifolium but essentially requires quick drainage, good winter light with a little shade in the hottest part of the day come Spring and shelter from cold drying winds. It is very hardy but dislikes freezing or wet winds. Its marbled kidney-shaped leaves appear in September and persist until late Spring when higher temperatures and sunlight force the into a protective dormancy. The flowers are more dumpy and rounded than typical cyclamen flowers and come in a range of colours from white through pink to deep magenta, always with a darker blotch at the mouth of the paler eyes. They liven up the Winter garden, appearing as they do from Christmas onwards, being remarkably cold tolerant. Excellent for naturalising in sunny banks at the foot of trees, even conifers providing the branches don't come too close to the ground. They only require good drainage, some shelter and a little shade in late Spring which can be provided by deciduous shrubs and tress or even herbaceous plants or bulbs. Discount of 25p for 3-9 plants, 30p for 10 or more Our plants have been grown from seed collected around the garden and are therefore various shades and have varied leaf patterns. They are not wild collected
