English cottage garden flowers are increasingly sought after by florists and floral designers, but with our fabulous 'Scoop' Collection you can grow your own slender-stemmed scabious in the garden at home. The unique brightly-coloured, pincushion-shaped blooms sit on slim, but sturdy stems making them ideal for planting in borders in the garden, but also perfect for vases or bouquets.

This scabious collection is made up of four stunning varieties – 'Marshmallow Scoop', 'Blackberry Scoop', 'Vanilla Scoop' and 'Cherry Vanilla Scoop' – and yes, they look as delicious as they sound! Plant them separately or together; wherever you position your scabious plants, they'll look a treat. And don't forget that as with all scabious, the pretty pincushion flower heads are a favourite treat of butterflies and bees too!
