Cheerful Summer Border

Cheerful Summer Border
Want to enjoy a colourful, cheerful border or patio/decking in the summer? Plant various hardy perennials all through one another to create a modern border in a spectacular mix of colours. Enjoy it all summer through!

The perfect mix of perennials

Our gardening specialists have put together a ‘ready made’ pack for a border, in a mix of purple, white and yellow. Of course attention has also been paid to flowering times, heights and flower shapes. The purple and white flowers on common yarrow, white coneflower, sage and stachys add accent to any garden or patio, together with bright daylily and yellow camomile. Whether planted in the garden border or potted up in pretty planters, they will all bring a spectacular show of flowers!

Pretty flowers, all summer long!

The first flowers among these cheerful perennials appear in June and the colourful blooms on all these perfectly matched garden plants will be around to admire until the end of summer. The varieties chosen by our gardening specialists especially for this border pack are all long flowering and will all attract bees and butterflies besides.

A generously filled flower box in every garden

Plant this cheerful mix of garden plants in full sun or light shade. These plants bring colour to smaller gardens too, or indeed a patio or decking! These garden plants will all thrive in large planters and tubs. To make it look as natural as possible, use planters in natural materials where possible, like reed baskets, or wooden planters. Perhaps you have some old, mossy terracotta pots? They will look just lovely filled with this bright and modern mix of garden plants!

You will find the following plants in this border:
Achillea millefolium 'Lilac Beauty', Anthemis x hybrida 'E.C. Buxton', Echinacea purpurea 'Alba', Hemerocallis 'Stella d'Or', Salvia nemorosa 'Mainacht', Stachys monieri 'Hummelo'.
