Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)
A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.
Height: 15-25cm
Flowers: May to October
Geeklet: Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into your summer baskets and patio pots?

Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea)
A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with pink and purple flowers on spikes.
Height: 60-150cm
Flowers: June to September
Toxicity: Poisonous if eaten
Geeklet: Foxgloves are a really good ‘bridging plant’ as they bloom late May-June, a period when the bulbs have finished and the summer perennials are yet to be at their best!

Red clover (Trifolium pratense)
Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
Height: 10-45cm
Flowers: May to September
Geeklet: The trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!

Viper's Bugloss (Echium vulgare)
A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with incredibly blue flowers emerging from pink buds.
Height: 30-90cm
Flowers: June to September
Geeklet: If you’re looking to do something a little different with your echium, why not try growing a low blue hedge with it, or scatter it amongst paving slabs to soften the landscape and add a punch of colour.

Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare)
Aromatic perennial with dark purple buds and pinkish purple flowers.
Height: 30-60cm
Flowers: April to November
Geeklet: The Wild Marjoram is not only a wildflower, but can also double up as a pretty damn tasty pizza topping, along with your very best sweet tomatoes!

 

Please note, warm sun and water are required for sprouts to form. November scattered seed balls are unlikely to sprout until the Spring.
