Perennials are those fabulous plants you see and just fall in love with. Perennials add colour, structure and form to your garden beds. They change with the seasons bringing changing beauty to your surrounds.

There are a range of perennials on offer from evergreen (year round interest), semi evergreen (will remain evergreen in warmer climates, though don’t grow much through winter) and herbaceous (have a rest period during the year, usually winter where they die down to just a crown in dormancy before remerging in spring). Each type has major advantages in your garden beds. They are easy to use and each comes with detailed, easy to apply growing instructions.

African Daisy

Robust, well branched cultivars, these African Daisies will grow to form handsome, rounded sub shrubs adorned with flowers from spring to autumn. Their compact habit lends well in pots and sunny borders, providing a nice pop of reliable, easy colour where you need it. They are dry tolerant, long blooming and so simple to care for.
