Product Description

This wonderful collection of low growing, groundcover perennials is perfect for planting at the front of borders and beneath taller garden plants to completely fill your garden. Not only do they provide year-round foliage interest, and they flower too, and keep weeds at bay by gradually spreading to carpet the ground.

They are all evergreen and flower in blue, pink, yellow and white during spring and summer and are recommended by the RHS as ‘Plants for Pollinators’, attractive bees and butterflies with their long flowering season.

Simply plant them about 60 cm (2 ft) apart so that they have room to grow and give them a trim after they’ve finished flowering or in spring to keep their foliage dense and in shape.

Supplied as 12 plug plants, ready to be potted on or planted out into your garden. You’ll receive 2 each of the following:

Ajuga ‘Burgundy Glow’ – Wonderful green and cream variegated foliage splashed with deep burgundy and spires of dainty, intense blue flowers from April until June. It will form a carpet of groundcover reaching a height of 15 cm (6 in) and spread of 90 cm (3 ft), if prefers partial shade.

Armeria ‘Morning Star Rose’ – Narrow, grass like leaves and a profusion of bright pink flowers in May and June. Reaching a height of 15 cm (6 in) and spread of 25 cm (10 in), preferring full sun.

Lysimachia ‘Goldilocks’ - Also known as the ‘Golden Creeping Jenny’, with striking, rounded golden foliage and small yellow flowers from June until October. It holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit Growing in sun or partial shade to 10 cm (4 in) height but trailing to 1 m (3 ft).

Iberis ‘Tahoe’ - A low, spreading perennial with mounds of lance shaped, glossy dark green leaves which give rise to short, dense clusters of small, fragrant white flowers from April until June. Growing to 30 cm (1 ft) in height and spreading 60 cm (2 ft) and preferring full sun.

Vinca minor ‘Colada’ – The white periwinkle with glossy foliage and low, spreading shoots dotted with white flowers from April until September. It will grow in sun or full shade, reaching 15 cm (6 in) in height and spreading 1 m (3 ft).

Top Tips

  • Deadhead to encourage more flowers.

Care Guide

  • Give your plugs a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When you're ready to pot on, use a good quality, multi-purpose compost, and fill 3-4in pots (7-10cm).
  • Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or your finger, then holding each plug by its root ball, place it into the hole and gently firm the compost around it.
  • For great results, we recommend using our Windowsill Planters or 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry as they don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Grow on either on a bright windowsill or a greenhouse for 3-4 weeks before potting up into containers or into flower beds.
  • If planting directly into flower beds when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
  • Plant 60cm (2ft apart), and they will fill gaps after their second season.
  • Deadhead when flowers fade to encourage more blooms.
  • Trim back after flowering has finished in autumn or in spring.
