Perennials

The real heart-stopping, breathtaking beauty of a garden comes from that most easy-going of all the plant groups: the perennials, generous, free-flowering plants which die down each winter only to bubble up again from spring, peaking in midsummer with a fireworks display of flowers.

Pack your garden with perennials from the huge selection in our garden centre and you'll have something in flower for every week of the year. Here are a few tips to help you choose:

Visit the garden centre often as we have different perennials in stock according to the season. Choose whatever takes your fancy each month for really long-lasting display.

Cut perennials back after flowering and they'll often give you a second flush of flowers. You'll find secateurs for the job in our garden centre.

Plant the right plant in the right place: there are perennials for every spot in your garden, whether it's shady, sunny, dry or damp. Ask our garden centre staff for help if you're not sure which to choose.

Plant in threes or fives for greatest impact: drifts or groups of the same plant really catch your eye and demand to be noticed.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Cornamagh for more information and advice about growing perennials.
