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!
Polyanthus 'Large Flowered Mixed'
PrimulaOne of the most beautiful of all spring-flowering plnats. Vigourous in habit, it produces a profusion of large blooms in a delightful range of colours from white through to cream and yellow to orange and crimson.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Try the sweet tasting petals on top of salads or even pancakes, crystallise them for use as cake decorations too. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
Myosotis sylvatica 'Royal Blue Improved'
A very early and free flowering variety bearing deep indigo-blue flowers to provide masses of colour in the garden in spring.More info
Primrose 'Jupiter White'
PrimulaA sturdy compact primrose for spring containers and tidy bedding displays. The stocky plants are the perfect companions to taller spring flowering bulbs such as daffodils and tulips, the fresh white blooms with sparkling central red eye make the ideal canvas for the taller spring blooms. Sow though late spring and summer for planting out in autumn. Guaranteed to bring a smile on the dullest of late winter days. Height and spread: 20cm (8in). More info
