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!

Commelina dianthifolia

Bird-bill Day Flower, Widow's Tears

 Customer Rating

A very rare plant indeed. This is one of the few plants with such intense blue flowers and that will also perform well in the garden. Flowering in its first year with 2.5cm (1in) gentian blue flowers, it then produces tubers and springs back to life the following year with an unceasing display of blooms. Wonderful in containers, rock gardens and the border (regardless of soil conditions). Hardy down to -8/-10C. Flowers summer. Height 15-30cm (6-12in.)

Heteropappus meyendorfii 'Blue Knoll'

Seed of this amazing new garden plant can be sown early in the year* and by the same autumn will be completely smothered in hundreds and thousands of shiny, light reflecting flowers, forming perfect mounds (or knolls) 30cm (12in) high and 45cm (18in) across. During a season when little else is in flower, they are a perfect fit for a change in containers or will brighten up the border, looking like blue charm chrysanthemums. No matter what the weather conditions - torrential rain, snow or frost they continue to look far and away the best, brightest plant in the garden, even right through November. *Sow during January/February to flower in October/November. Sow September/October to flower following September/October. More info

Dianthus caryophyllus 'Trailing Carnations Mixed'

Fabulous geranium which looks just as good in bud as in full flower.

Petals have shocking pink undersides with pure white uppers, attractively 'dusted' with pink in the centre and on the edges.

Sarracenia species 'New Hybrids Mixed'

Pitcher Plant

Seemingly innocent, the leaves of the pitcher plant have evolved into water-filled funnels that hide a sinister purpose. These intriguing carnivorous plants devour insects to improve their diet and counter poor nitrogen levels in the soils of their natural habitats. Lured by the promise of sweet nectar-like secretions on the lip of each pitcher, their victims are met by a slippery footing and tumble to a watery death deep within each funnel. Endlessly fascinating, Sarracenia species 'New Hybrids Mixed' make a captivating talking point for the greenhouse, conservatory or a windowsill indoors. Plants will be mature enough to catch insects after 2 - 3 years. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (8"). More info
