    • Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)
      A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.
      Height: 15-25cm
      Flowers: May to October
      Geeklet: Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into your summer baskets and patio pots?
    • Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea)
      A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with pink and purple flowers on spikes.
      Height: 60-150cm
      Flowers: June to September
      Toxicity: Poisonous if eaten
      Geeklet: Foxgloves are a really good ‘bridging plant’ as they bloom late May-June, a period when the bulbs have finished and the summer perennials are yet to be at their best!
    • Red clover (Trifolium pratense)
      Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
      Height: 10-45cm
      Flowers: May to September
      Geeklet: The trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!
    • Viper's Bugloss (Echium vulgare)
      A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with incredibly blue flowers emerging from pink buds.
      Height: 30-90cm
      Flowers: June to September
      Geeklet: If you’re looking to do something a little different with your echium, why not try growing a low blue hedge with it, or scatter it amongst paving slabs to soften the landscape and add a punch of colour.
    • Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare)
      Aromatic perennial with dark purple buds and pinkish purple flowers.
      Height: 30-60cm
      Flowers: April to November
      Geeklet: The Wild Marjoram is not only a wildflower, but can also double up as a pretty damn tasty pizza topping, along with your very best sweet tomatoes!
