Meet our Plant Of The Month, the Salvia.
With a wide variety to choose from, these spires of flowers can grace any garden! From the larger, more established plants, we have a number of smaller plant pots, with younger plants, making it an excellent value for money purchase!
And now, for something new.
Our newest addition to our range of Salvias is the Naomy Tree, a soft pink salvia with larger flowers than most commonly found varieties, the Salvia Naomy is a romantic and subtle bloom that flowers profusely from June to September.
Its soft colours and gentle sage scented leaves are ideal for creating a calming colour scheme in the garden to reduce stress. Plant with soft pastel blues and whites for a gentle and peaceful summer display of colour .
Salvias are a great group of plants for attracting pollinators into the garden, bees and butterflies love them!
There are many different types of Salvias, some hardy and some not so hardy. Choose from shrub-like Salvias, such as the popular ‘Hot lips’; its red and white dainty flowers cover the plant and provide a nectar source for bees, or perhaps try one of the herbaceous types like Salvia ‘Caradonna’ with upright spikes of rich blue during early summer.
A second flush of flowers can be encouraged by cutting the plant back after flowering. Salvias love the sunshine and free draining soil and many thrive in pots. Hardy Salvias should survive the winter in the garden, and less hardy types can be moved under cover for the winter.
