Election coverage brought to you by Blossoms on the Go

Tip for February:

Hope everyone had lovely valentine Day and that your week is going well so far.

We are busy getting ready for all the lovely perennials and shrubs that are starting to arrive
here in the garden centre so if its long lasting and colour you want check out the Erysimum
one of my personal favourites. They are also commonly known as the wallflowers they have
a lovely scent and the flowers are long lasting throughout the year. Another favourite is the
Primula which give a fantastic show of colour, and this is just some of what’s to arrive, so
don’t forget to call in and see what’s on offer this week.

This week we have some questions about ground cover plants and rockery plant.

Rockeries are dry with limited soil and plant that will adapt to this I have listed some below.
You can create quite a nice colourful space the campanula is a favourite with is purple
flowers the Armeria is another comes in two colours white and pink and can self-seed which
can be lovely if it’s a wild effect you would like. Dianthus flashing lights is another fab one
with its red flowers .There is a lot of choice available when it comes to creating a rockery.

I have put together a list of the most popular ones below, a sample of the wide range
available throughout the year. Ajuga repens, Saxifraga, Campanula, Aubrietia, Armeria,
Cotoneaster, Geranium, Pachysandras, Cerastium tomentosum .

Ground cover plants are ones which we prefer to give cover and spread over an area.

The choice again is varied some of which are the Heather they give a lovely coverage when
group planted lots of colours to choose from.

Campanula is a lovely purple flowering perennial nice ground cover and come in white and a
light purple. Cotoneaster Repens is an evergreen shrub with lovely red berries in the autumn
/winter. Geraniums come in many colours and some are scented they can give a nice
colourful spread .

These are just a few of many which are available throughout the year .

I hope everyone is enjoying their time in the garden and all it has to offer.
