Cerinthe major 'Purpurascens' - Part of the Alan Titchmarsh Collection
This unusual little plant is one of my garden favourites; and you can always track it down in the garden by listening for the sound of buzzing bees. It's easy to grow too; at home in most soils and producing sprays of electric-blue, metallic blooms, which 'drip' with purple florets. Cerinthe major 'Purpurascens' is a real stunner. And if you want to impress your neighbours, this will certainly give them something to talk about. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").
Alan Titchmarsh says...
"One of my all time favourites - every garden should have one of these!"
Dianthus 'Dwarf Doris' - Part of the Alan Titchmarsh Collection
Pinks are great garden basics, but they can often get a bit leggy and out of control. Not so with 'Dwarf Doris', an exclusive new selection which grows like a neat little cushion, with so many blooms you can't see the foliage. And the fragrance? Imagine cloves covered with sugar; sweet yet spicy. A foolproof border plant that's neat and easy to grow - with the added bonus of a fabulous scent. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 25cm (10").
