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

It is best to plant your perennials in autumn and spring to give them time to settle into 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, then you can just relax and enjoy them.
