Our 'Seaside Collection' is ideal for coastal gardens as well as those living far from the sea but would like to bring the seaside to their back garden. The combination of dancing leaves, silvery blue foliage and bright flowers adds colour, texture and movement. Drought tolerant and low maintenance perennials, they are ideal for a sunny, well drained area .
The amazing Osteospermum 'Tresco Purple' flowers over a long period through summer and autumn. A fabulous plant for the border or large pots, it is also loved by pollinators.
The silvery blue grasses are not only perfect to create a seaside look, they are also ideal for making an area feel larger and bringing tranquility. All evergreen, the grasses range in height from 30cm to 75cm.
Adding gravel, shells, pebbles or a seaside mulch will not only suppress weeds but will also add to the seaside garden feel as will deck chairs, paths lined with rope and natural decorations made from wood.
It won't be long before you'll be able to close your eyes hearing the sounds of seagulls, feeling the urge to scoop ice cream into a cone and don a handkerchief on your head :-)
