Useful tips:

Take cuttings of the leafy stems in the summer and pop the cuttings up into plant pots filled with a potting on compost like John Innes No.2. This increases the numbers of new plants you have at your disposal and is a great way to make savings while enjoying a rich flower garden.

In October cut down the stems to ground level and keep the roots of your plants warm and active with a surrounding layer of mulch on the soil surface.

    Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
