Late Spring Flower Power
Tere is a time in the garden
when the spring varieties start
to fade, but it may still be a little
too cold to plant out late summer
bedding just yet. Tere is that
awkward in between stage where
many people are not sure what to
plant for colour and interest.
Tese pages include varieties that
are perfect for this inbetween
time and will add fantastic colour
to the garden from the very
beginning of the summer season
in late April/Early May.

Lobularia Lobularia
Snow Princess
Tese Lobularia are like no
others that have come
before them. Tey
outperform seed
raised varieties by
Being sterile,
they are extremely
vigorous, and because they
put no energy into setting seed
they have an incredibly long bloom
Tey create a great hanging basket or window box and are a perfect fller
in combinations. In addition they have a delicious honey scent, and
we have even found them to be hardy in our trials in very well drained
situations in the garden.
Primavera Princess has variegated foliage that is proving to be very on
trend at the moment, and Princess in Purple produces airy clouds of
fowers to create a purple haze in a pot or basket. Snow Princess is a
multi award-winning variety for its garden performance.

series with such a range of vibrant colours to be produced from cuttings
rather than seed.
Tis means that they will not produce
seeds as readily as some of the more
traditional seed grown varieties. Tis
leads to plants with far greater vigour
and fower power so you can enjoy
the wonderful colours right through
the summer.
Te upright varieties have the best
scent - ideal for tubs. Te semi
trailing types are excellent for baskets
as well as pots, tubs and raised beds.
