Perennial & Biennial Seeds


Biennials live for 2 years, whereas perennials live for longer. As a general rule, biennial and perennial seeds should be sown in spring, but some can be sown in autumn as well. Many varieties will self-seed after flowering, giving you even more plants!

Echinacea purpurea 'Double Decker'

A very unusual purple-red flowered variety that produces predominantly single flowers in the first growing season, followed by a high percentage of these visually stunning 'twin' flowers in the second season, with the chance that some may even be fully double. These intriguing flowers grace tall, strong stems and make superb long lasting border perennials, attracting many beneficial insects to your garden.

Echinacea purpurea 'Magnus'

Coneflower

 Customer Rating
An outstanding selection of the 'Cone Flower', distinguished by the warm bright colour of its exceptionally large flowers. The slender elegance and formality of its petals give it a style that will add class to larger flower arrangements. In the border it is no less valuable on account of its robust strong stems and general vigour which give 'Magnus' good wind and weather resistance. Flower in their first season from an early sowing. Flowers mid summer to winter. Height 1m (36 inches).

Knautia macedonica

Macedonian Scabious, Scabiosa rumelica

One of the finest perennials for the border we have seen. It has a very long season of flowering lasting well into the autumn and early winter.

Makes a large, neat, rounded bushy plant producing many flowers which are excellent for cutting. Easy to grow and undemanding. Flowers summer/autumn. Height 90-120cm (3-4ft).
