Perennial has launched a new Chelsea Plant Collection to celebrate taking part in the 2014 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Garden designer Jo Thompson has selected five hardy perennials from the Great Pavilion exhibit she designed for Perennial, giving a flavour of her Chelsea planting scheme to try at home.

The collection is available to buy online, thanks to a new partnership between Perennial and Coblands Nurseries.

Coblands has also supplied many of the plants for the Chelsea exhibit.

The Perennial exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show marks the 175th anniversary of the charity, which has a £175,000 fundraising campaign this year to mark 175 years.

The two litre plants cost £41 for the collection and are:

  • Anthriscus sylvestris ‘Ravenswing’
  • Artemisia ‘Powis Castle’
  • Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’
  • Astrantia major ‘Roma’
  • Geum ‘Totally Tangerine’

I will not be importing oaks this season. Will you?

I find myself in a difficult situation. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be present to hear details of imminent changes to regulations concerning Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and oak trees. I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.

Opinion... Better targets to tackle pollution

Lobby groups jumping onto fashionable campaigns, often to promote their own interests, can do much more harm than good. Take, for example, the move against black polythene plant pots and containers.
