Chelsea Flower Seeds Mix

Three packets of seeds to give your garden the Chelsea look. Anchusa, Geum and Orlaya are a stunning combination of early flowering plants. They are all beautiful in garden borders and containers and they are all excellent for wildlife.

Anchusa Dropmore is one of the best early flowering perennials of all. If you've ever been to Chelsea Flower Show or seen it on the TV you'll have seen Anchusa in many of the show gardens as it's so stunning and flowers from May onwards. This lovely plant produces masses of upright stems with vibrant blue flowers from May to July or August if you're lucky. The intense blue tubular flowers of Anchusa Dropmore each have five petals and are full of nectar which bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects love. It's brilliant a splash of early colour and for wildlife gardens too.



Orlaya is commonly known as the White Lace Flower. It has flat heads of pure white blooms made up of clusters of florets surrounded by larger rays. Foliage is green and finely dissected so the plants look delicate and frothy. In fact they are quite tough and will cope with most gardens as long as you plant them in a sunny place. This lovely hardy annual plant is brilliant for adding a lighter touch to your planting schemes or cut flower beds. Orlaya' is especially lovely in bunches of mixed flowers. It’s easy to grow and good for pollinating insects too. Sow in spring for flowers this summer and sow again in autumn for early flowers next year.

Geum 'Lady Stratheden' is a popular fast growing perennial with arching stems topped by large semi-double golden yellow flowers. Cut back after the first flush of blooms to encourage new growth and your plants will go on flowering all summer long. Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit for reliability and excellent garden performance.
