Watch as he plants three choice sedum varieties – 'Matrona', 'Herbstfreude' (or 'Autumn Joy') andH. telephium 'Purple Emperor' – with tips on how to prepare the soil so they thrive.
These delicate flowering plants with grass-like foliage create a striking focal point in the border. Buy a collection of three for £15, or buy three packs for the price of two with the nine-plant collection for just £30.
