Never before has there been such a spectacular range of colours of fully double to semi-double Rudbeckia, with large 3-4in blooms. Shades of golden yellow, orange, bronze and mahogany make up this stunning blend that resembles the attractive colour spectrum of an Indian Sunset. Vigorous, free branching plants, with strong stems, which flower over a long period from mid summer to early autumn. Cherokee Sunset® is outstanding for adding height, colour and interest to beds, borders and large containers. Also makes an impressive cut flower. T&M are proud to be the first UK packet seed company to have an All American Selection Winning variety from its own breeding programme. This prestigious award is presented to varieties that have outstanding garden performance, quality blooms, a unique colour range and that show a significant improvement over existing varieties of the species.

Dianthus 'Odessa Amy'

Carnation, Pink

  • Mini carnations ideal for small spaces!
  • 30 blooms or more at any one time!!
  • Bright colours and a spicy fragrance

This tough garden variety is one of the best performers we've seen in both field and container trials. These compact carnation plants make up for their lack of height with an impressive display of perfumed blooms. Carnation 'Odessa Amy' really puts on a heavy flowering display, expect 30 blooms on each plant at any one time. Not only does it bring vivid colours to your patio and table top containers, you'll also be rewarded with a warm spicy fragrance - something that is missing from many other modern bred varieties in the search for stronger colours. The short stature of 'Odessa Amy' makes it a perfect choice for adding colour to the front of borders, and this cute carnation won't look out of place in rock garden plantings either. Height 20cm (8"). Spread 25cm (10").


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Curcuma Collection

Curcuma alismatifolia, Siam Tulip, Ornamental Turmeric

  • Rare summer flowering bulb
  • Be one of the first to grow these exotic Thai flowers in the UK
  • Perfect summer patio pot plant and winter houseplant.

Add a touch of Thailand to your summer patio or conservatory! You may have seen these exotic flowers in luxury tropical bouquets, but it's unlikely you've seen them growing in a garden setting here in the UK. We've managed to secure a limited stock of these unusual summer flowering bulbs, so you can be one of the first UK gardeners to add them to your displays for real wow factor on the patio this summer. Despite their exotic looks, curcuma tubers are no more difficult to grow than frost tender begonias and dahlias. Start them into growth in early spring on a warm windowsill or in the greenhouse for months of summer colour on the patio from their alien-like, waxy flowerheads. Each flower spike is a work of art and is perfectly shown off above the ornamental pleated foliage. All varieties in our mix are winter temperature hardy, but we’ve given them a half-hardy rating because they won't cope outside during a wet winter. If you can keep them dry, then by all means leave them outside during the colder months to go into a dormant phase, but we think you'll get more from these luxurious Siam tulips if you bring them in before the first autumn frost and let them bloom through winter on a warm windowsill. Curcuma ‘Anna Pink’ will add a flash of hot pink to your displays. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread 30cm (12").

Dianthus 'Blackjack'

Carnation

New modern cut-flower quality carnation plants packing the heavenly scent of antique varieties! Modern breeding work has seen the unmistakable scent of carnations all but disappear in the search for longer, cut flower-quality stems. Fortunately Carnation 'Blackjack' bucks that trend. Not only does it offer a unique colour combination, the near black blooms also bring punchy clove-like fragrance to the garden. A perfect border carnation, it also performs well in containers. Originally planned for the commercial cut flower market, you won't be disappointed by the endless supply of fresh stems either! Keep the colour and scent in the garden or use Dianthus 'Blackjack' as your very own cut flower carnation. Height and spread: 50cm (20").


Culinary note: Use the clove like tasting petals for adding to cakes, either for flavour or decorating, suitable for soups, salads and sauces too. For more details about edible flowers click here.
