  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A great way to bulk up your perennial borders, these large plug plants are useful for adding height as well as colour.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5-7cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners with a greenhouse, where plants can be grown on until they are ready to plant out once all chance of frost has passed.

    This collection contains 60 large plug plants - 20 of each of the following:

  • Alcea 'Chaters Double Mixed' From rounded buds, many-petalled flowers open upwards from the base of the sturdy, upright stems. The blooms are attractive to bees and other beneficial insects and are particularly ornamental. Grows to 2.5m.

  • Delphinium 'Guardian Mixed' Relatively compact in habit, these stout delphiniums are now widely grown by cut-flower specialists, because of their ability to bloom so quickly after being transplanted. They are however equally useful in the border, providing magnificent columns of colour for several weeks from early summer. Grows to 1.2m.

  • Digitalis 'Dalmatian Mixed' A breakthrough in breeding has produced these new 'Dalmatian' foxgloves, which will usually flower in their first year. They form tidy clumps of foliage, but it is for the wonderful spires of thimble-like flowers that open upwards from the base of the spike in summer, that they are best-loved. Grows to 60cm.

    Please note that as we grow these especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. See above for despatch dates for this particular plant. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.

will your perennial collection flower in its first year


Hello there Yes given the right conditions you should have some flowers this year, but it will be the following years, once the perennials establish and fill out that you will have more of a display.

Plant up summer containers

After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
