Adding perennials to your garden enables you to create stunning shows throughout the seasons. There is an almost endless supply of form, and colour to choose from, and one for almost every situation.

It is beat to plant your perennials in autumn and spring to give them time to settle in to the garden before the extremes of summer and winter. Water them in well, and keep the water up to them until they establish. As they settle in, they will become less needy and you can just relax and enjoy them.
