Plant collections

Choosing plants for a border can be an exciting experience. But equally it can be confusing, especially when there are so many plants and reasons for choosing a certain variety. These collections are designed to make your selection easier.

You can either order a complete collection, or use them as a source of inpsiration. Each collection contains 12 different varietes for a border with well-drained soil and a reasonably sunny situation. The collections are designed for a border approximately 1.2m (4ft) long x 1m (3ft) wide. If you have a bigger border, simply multiply the number of plants.
