Hardy Perennials

Hardy Perennials

Colourful and adaptable plants for almost every situation

Herbaceous perennials (coming back year after year) are incredibly varied in shape, size and colour and can be used to add colour to borders. They can be planted together in herbaceous borders or used with shrubs, roses and bulbs in mixed planting schemes. Some will also thrive in pots and containers. Many perennials are particularly good for attracting butterflies, bees and many other beneficial insects to the garden.

We grow over 300 different perennials each year, including a few unusual varieties, some brand new varieties, as well as the well-known favourites.
