June

Anne….. Primula pulverulenta – I just love the colour of this shade loving primula. It does very well for me in deep shade, lighting it up with it’s extraordinary depth of vivid magenta. It loves the damp round our little pond behind the office and seeds happily in the bark path.

Brenda….. Cephalaria gigantea – Yellow scabious is a plant I have grown since my early gardening days and is definitely one I would not be without. Initially grown from seed bought from a bee keeping stand. Tall, elegant and airy it looks good with Verbena bonariensis, that is if you can get the Verbena to stay put!

Microseris ringens ‘Girandole’  – Yes I know the flowers look like a ragwort or dandelion flower but I just love the bright yellow against the dark green shiny serrated edged foliage. Seeds and spreads so makes good ground cover. Mine seems happy in dryish semi-shade. Flowers from June to September.
