For a little extra “zing”ia (stay with me) in your garden give these a go. With double petals in bunches of bright colours they will give your day an extra “zing” (ok I’ll stop). At 80cm tall and living for around a year, the pastel and mid tones of pink, purple and orange are sure to delight (unlike the puns).
SWEET PEA - Nope it’s not a nickname this time (how would that fit in an envelope?) it’s one of the world's most beloved fragrant flowers. Easy peasy to grow up a light frame and enjoy the scent at head height. Comes in devine lilac (not the grandma colour, the stylish one) and sweetheart pinks and purples. Lives for less than a year but forever in your memory.
SUNFLOWER - Like a teddy bear this sun ower just looks so CUDDLY!!!* Huge fluffy spheres of deep golden flowers. Cut for your vase and enjoy them!! They can flower for two months getting up to 1.5m tall. *cuddling flowers not recommended.
DAHLIA - Bold. Loud. Colourful. You and these Dahlia’s have a bit in common right? Well even if you don’t, release your attention seeking alter ego with these bright Dahlias. They will live for a little less than a year but at 60cm tall with punches of yellow, red, orange, white and pink are sure to convince you to live a little wilder. Go on, wear that purple with the red!
