    PAPAVER SOMNIFERUM SUMMER BLAZE 20 X PACKET

    A huge, 20 x packet for sprinkling around a larger garden. Huge papery flowers in shades of red, mauve and pink open in a blazing fanfare in June and July. These flowers usually do best if just sown broadcast where the flowers are needed, simply sprinkle seeds around very thinly, either in early spring, or the previous summer or autumn. This is one of the fastest ways to make a dazzling splash in an open spot, and after the petals have fallen the attractive dried seed-heads can be collected on long stems for long-lasting decorations in the house! Packet contains approx 20x the amount of a standard portion for this variety. ... Learn More

    PARTHENON F1

    This reliable and succulent F1 variety does not need insect pollination to set its crop of dark green, slightly speckled cylindrical fruit. This makes it ideal for growing in polytunnels as well as outside when the weather is so unpredictable. The first fruit set very early in the season and should be picked regularly to encourage further production. ... Learn More

    PETUNIA AXILLARIS

    Extremely rare, and only recently having been "re-discovered" after being thought to be extinct in the wild, this gorgeous, almost constant-flowering plant, forms a strong, vigorous, hemispherical mound of blooms, and it can, if desired, also tastefully twirl itself around taller neighbours, even turning into a climber at times! One of the world's most fragrant flowers, at night it comes into its own when it produces copious quantities of vanilla & licorice perfume! It is a true perennial plant, and one of the ancestors of modern Petunias, harking back to 1823 when a brave explorer plucked it from the mouth of the Rio de la Plata in South America, but alas, it was soon lost again! Its astonishing sweet scent makes it an essential part of the evening garden, or grown in a large pot indoors, and given room to expand, either upwards or cascading, it will fill the house with perfume every night! In the wild it is pollinated by hawkmoths and other nocturnal insects, and amazingly it shrugs off rain storms outside with no marking or dissolving as most petunias are prone to do. ... Learn More

    PRIMULA VERTICILLATA

    Beautiful, jagged-edged grey leaves are thickly dusted with farina, which also coats the flower stems, each carrying whorls of bright yellow flowers. This spectacular and rarely-encountered beauty can be grown in a dry, protected spot outdoors, but it truly does make an amazing spectacle indoors or in an alpine house, where it can stand considerable heat and drying, even on a hot window sill as in the illustration here. It can be very thirsty, but it rewards constant drinks, and occasional feeding with an endless display of fragrant flowers as it blooms on and off for much of the year apart from mid-winter! In the wild the Sphondylia section of primulas come from surprisingly hot places, like Saudia Arabia, Yemen, the Sinai peninsula and Ethiopia, where they inhabit shady, damp places and often grow on wet, north facing, limestone cliffs. Botanically, they are related to, and indeed the flowers bear some resemblance, to the beautiful, and much harder-to-grow Dionysia species. Old plants can grow to a very large size and reward being re-potted yearly. ... Learn More

    SEQUOIADENDRON GIGANTEUM

    The giant of the forest - these mighty trees grow spectacularly huge in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, and are believed to be among the oldest living organisms on the planet, and certainly the tallest! An interesting challenge for any keen horticulturalist to see how a seedling could be nurtured - consider planting one for your grandchildren (or possibly great-grandchildren!). ... Learn More

    SORGHUM NIGRUM

    This is the more attracrtive black seeded form of this ornamental and globally-important grass. One of the few grains that can be used as a wheat substitute in gluten-free recipes and products, this is an important food crop in Africa, Central America, and South Asia, and is the "fifth-most important cereal crop grown in the world". Sorghum is one of Africa’s greatest contributions to the world’s agricultural diversity, and is a traditional crop in warmer countries. Adaptable and drought tolerant, sorghum provides grain, sweet syrup, animal fodder, or sometimes, more than one crop from a single planting! ... Learn More

    VERONICASTRUM VIRGINICUM 'ALBUM'

    This majestic perennial boasts striking slender spires of delicate, pure snowy-white flowers above dense green foliage. Flowering from June until August, this is an eye-catching addition to the cottage garden or can be dotted through a large herbaceous border to good effect, and is happy in full sun or partial shade. Especially impressive in a dark corner! ... Learn More
