Followed your advice Bunny, worked a treat fingers crossed got 3 new purple ones all for free. Might not have to ever grow them from seed again

Need help with different types of plants

I have a similar bed that I've been trying to plant up. Apart from Spring bulbs, I have found that my Lupins do ok as well as Aqueligias. Had some success with the perennial geraniums. Still looking for suitable plants that will flower in the Summer though as the bed can look a little bare at that time of year
