A quick-growing annual climber with cascades of flowers, starting flame red-red at the tip and fading to cream. These will look spectacular for three to four months, beating most clematis hands down. It is beautiful climbing over arches and frames in my garden.
Poppy Falling In Love£2.75
Ethereal, delicate and truly lovely mix of poppies - singles, doubles, whites, pinks, mauves and smokey-greys and the odd red. Sow it straight into a sunny spot in your garden and sit back and watch the display.
Salvia Deep Blue£2.99
The most intense blue of almost any garden plant, these velvety salvia flowers are irresistible and the bees and butterflies think much the same.
Lupin Cruickshankii Blue Javelin£2.99
Beautiful, blue and yellow lupin flowers, with a delicious scent. This flower is long and hard and with its stems seared in boiling water for 10 seconds, makes a lovely single stem cut flower.
Sr/Wl-Marigold (French X African) Sunburst Mixed£2.99
The classic plant to use to edge your vegetable garden paths, to draw in the pollinators. It ups your harvest and attracts the good bugs - the ladybirds and lacewings - to help protect against many vegetable garden pests.
Sunflower Vanilla Ice£2.55
This pretty, smaller than usual sunflower is hugely prolific and long-flowering and is loved by butterflies and bees. The creamy white flowers are great for endless hand-tied bunches and flower arrangements.
Luxurious, orange flowers, with petals of plush velvet. This Mexican sunflower remains one of my favourite summer and autumn flowers for the garden and for picking - and as soon as the sun is out, it's always busy with butterflies and bees.
Sr/Wl-Viola Comedy Mixed F2£2.75
Flowering for months at a stretch, this jolly mix of small-flowered pansies is always a Mecca for early pollinators and perfect for scattering over salad and decorating ice-cubes.
Zinnia Sprite Mixed£2.75
This is a beautifully delicate and small flowered zinnia, yet a robust and floriferous variety which is easy and reliable to grow in the UK climate.
Gaura The Bride£2.99
Wonderful, long, elegant spikes of pink buds opening to white which flower longer - from May until November - than any other plant in my garden. This short-lived perennial plant for the front of a border is great as a light and airy cut flower for a bedside table.
Gorgeous lemon-yellow blooms to fill your garden with colour and scale through summer and autumn. Pick lots for piling into jugs and vases inside too.
