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!
Dianthus plumarius 'Sweetness Mixed'
A true breakthrough! First year flowering from July to September from an early (February) sowing, producing heavily scented pinks. Dwarf, bushy, spreading plants; ideal for cottage or perennial borders. Easy to maintain - simply trim spent blooms with shears at the end of the season.
Prunella grandiflora 'Freelander Blue'
Self-heal, Large Self-healCustomer Rating
Originating in the mountainous regions of Europe, this vigorous and hardy perennial has been very successfully bred and selected from the wild form. Its lovely flower spikes of deep violet-blue blooms make a great choice for the front of borders and will serve as excellent ground cover as well.
Often known as 'self heal' - the foliage was used to stop bleeding in medieval times - this charming plant will attract bees and butterflies to the garden.More info
Viola x williamsiana 'Floral Powers Mixed' F1 Hybrid
This delightful mixture of very bushy and free-flowering plants is proving to be one of the best viola introductions in recent years. Out-flowering all other varieties, Viola Floral Powers Mixed has large blooms and, as its name suggests, fabulous 'flower power'. Early to bloom in a wonderful range of colours and performing well in borders, containers and baskets.
