Blue Poppy – a taste of the Himalaya

It may have been a cooler start to the growing season than we would like, but it is good planting-out weather. If you fancy something a little different for your garden how about a Himalayan Blue Poppy? Just coming into bud are our Meconopsis sheldonii ‘Slieve Donard’ (AGM) – the best perennial Meconopsis for English gardens. It produces stunning blue flowers with contrasting yellow stamens upon upright stems, and they really make a statement. These are ready to send to you as flowering size plants in 1 litre pots.

Our ever popular Harvington Hellebores® continue to be available as plugs, with more stock in pots coming online in July.

How was your spring garden? If you feel that you need to add some fresh interest, now is the time to pre-order your Erythronium bulbs. Once planted in the warm summer soil, they will root down in the autumn and glossy green foliage will emerge next February with stunning flowers opening in April. We have a fabulous range to select from, and can start sending these to you from July (all lovingly packaged using recyclable materials, as always!).

Or what about our range of Trillium rhizomes? Our rhizomes are at least 4 years old and given the right situation and soil they should flower after 1 year of planting again during April and May. Trilliums are very special woodland plants that enjoy being in dappled shade. The varieties we offer make great garden plants.

Happy gardening everyone!
