Perennial & Biennial Plants


In this range you'll find an impressive selection of perennial plants and biennial plants, which are perfect for beginners and experienced gardeners alike. Also known as herbaceous plants, perennial plants live for 2 or more years and flower every year. Biennial plants live for up to 2 years, flowering profusely in their second year before setting seed and dying. Both are great for beds and spring displays and there are many delightful plants to choose from. Use the selections in the left menu to select the right plants for your garden.

Geranium 'Skyrocket® Mixed'

Pelargonium

 Customer Rating

Wow - a new climbing geranium, growing 1.8m (6') in a season! Five of the brightest colours you've ever seen, set against fresh-green foliage. The extra long stems are smothered with rainbows of colour that make a surprisingly good cut flower! Geranium 'Skyrocket®' Mixed also makes a superb trailing specimen too – just perfect for window boxes and patio pots.

Precise German breeding has developed these top quality plants, so they are guaranteed to give a superb performance. Colours include: white, scarlet, dark red, orange and pink. Height: 1.8m (6'). Spread: 60cm (24”).


Although technically perennial, Pelargoniums are only half hardy and therefore normally treated as annuals in the UK. However, with care, they may be overwintered in a frost free greenhouse.

To make the most of your displays, try our exclusive Tower Pot™, specially designed to enable plants to climb easily.

Foxglove 'Illumination Pink'

Digitalis

 Customer Rating
  • Winner of Plant of the Year 2012 - RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Best new product at the Anglian Business Awards, Best new product at the Garden Retail awards
  • T&M's own breeding

Thought to be an impossible hybridisation, this is the most spectacular foxglove you will have ever seen! Parentage from the little-known Isoplexis (Canary Island Foxglove) gives this exciting new Digitalis its fabulous tropical colouring. Being completely sterile Foxglove ‘Illumination’ won’t set seed, giving it an incredibly long flowering period. Unlike most foxgloves which are generally biennial, this half-hardy semi-evergreen is a true perennial so you will be able to enjoy its flowers for years to come. The exotic looking blooms are densely packed on sturdy stems, with many side branches, making a striking addition to summer borders. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").
