Cottage Garden flowers, flowers for beautiful bouquets. Plants that grow year after year.

What I am talking about are are all the gorgeous Cottage Garden plants. The ones that can make great additions to a bouquet, add superb colour and structure and the butterflies and bees adore. Plants like Chrysanthemum, Echinacea, Salvia, Asters, Yarrow, Shasta daisies, Dahlias and others.All of these plants go into some form of dormancy during the Winter, Echinacea with its almost tuberous root system goes fully dormant , Dahlias which are tubers and are fully dormant, Salvias need a good trim back, as do Asters, Yarrow and Daisies.From now on is a great time to start planning what you’d like your garden to look like during late Spring through to Autumn. I will be dividing and potting on most of these listed plants over the next few weeks. I have just divided a gorgeous Yellow Kniphofia or Poker called ” Candlelight. ( native to Africa). I have a red hot poker variety that is flowering right now and another which flowers in late spring to summer.I have recently divided Purple and white Asters (see picture). I already have most of these plants for sale here on this site but will begin to list them individually for sale.All of these plants can be mailed across Australia except NT, WA and TAS.
