Peren ials are always popular, particularly if they have a long flowering season. They go on and on, year after year causing little trouble and effort. It's no accident that roses are the most popular flowering plants. Most will flower throughout srllfr if dead headed regularly. more > Diversions 610  Home Style 613 LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB? see page 287 Home Style Recipe Angling Reviews

One of the most popular is the tree mallow (Lavatera olbia). This has tall, arching branches covered in pale pink flowers giving a lovely display all sqllfr. It can grow up to 6ft and should be cut back around this time of year. Another favourite is Catmint (Nepeta) which makes a super clump of blue/purple stems in the s{llfr. It looks particularly good if grown under roses or other taller plants. more > Diversions 610 Home Style 613 Home Style Recipe Angling Reviews

Now is the time to cut them back hard for the new growth to shoot up. Hydrangeas make reliable long season flowering shrubs. Pink or blue flower colour will depend on your soil type. Many of the hebes have a long flowering season. These are evergreen shrubs that can range from 6ft to 10ft or more - they're very tough.
