This week's flowers
This will be the last week of tulips, but the more meadowy flowers are ready to follow on.
Iceland poppies (fantastic long lasting cut flowers) in vibrant oranges and yellows; Purple sensation globe alliums; and the first perennials. Two of my favourites are cirsium purpureum -like a burgundy thistle - and black leaved cow parsley "ravenswing". They look fantastic in a bunch with alliums and columbines.
I have potted up a dozen or so seedlings of the cow parsley which will be on sale in the next couple of weeks.
