  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to May

    Please note: These are sold as bare-root plants, which have recently been dug up from the ground. Therefore, they will look a bit wilted and sad when they arrive, however field grown plants are usually stronger, and they will soon pick when they are either planted out in the border or patio pot.

    Wallflowers are really popular plants for the spring garden because they are incredibly floriferous and put on a dazzling show. As they are biennials, they should be planted in autumn so they can get settled in during the winter and do their best the following spring. They are often used in bedding displays and will make wonderful partners for tulips and other spring-flowering bulbs.

    In each collection you will receive 10 bare root plants of each of the following -

  • 'Primrose Dame'Opening soft lemon before quickly turning a pale buttery shade, the flowers of this wallflower provide a soothing backdrop for strong purples and plums, as well as strengthening predominantly white and creamy bedding dispalys. A firm favourite in the spring garden, they are very easy to grow and the flowers also have a spicy scent.

  • 'Purple Shades'Impressive plants for the spring garden, wallflowers produce an abundance of flowers - this one in a most spectacular shade of red. For a wow-factor colour scheme, team it with rich purples and near-black tulips, or if you like acid brights, lime greens and oranges. You will want to plant more than you need, as they make excellent cut flowers and they have a wonderful clove-like perfume.

  • 'Fire King'These dazzling orange-red wallflowers will provide a stunning display in early spring. Wallflowers perform best in full sun where their bright, fragrant flowers will shine. They look particularly effective in a large patio container or at the front of a sunny fertile, well-drained border, underplanted with red or yellow tulips.

    These are sold as bare-root plants, which have recently been dug up from the ground. Therefore, they usually look a bit wilted and sad, however field grown plants are usually stronger and they will soon perk up very quickly when they are planted out in the garden or patio pot.

  • Garden care: Provide cloche protection where frosts are very severe or prolonged.

    Please note that these wallflowers should be planted out as soon as they arrive!
