50 Essential Perennials Every Garden Must Have!

Essential Perennials - Mountfitchet Garden Club

This was the title of our June meeting talk by Mr Paul Harrison talk.

His garden, of over an acre, is filled with perennials that suit all positions – sun, shade, damp, dry and anything in between. Before the slide-show began members were given a list of the plants to be shown, with both the colloquial and Latin name, so that personal “Wish Lists” could be made.

A list of helpful contacts and suppliers, where some of the more unusual seeds/plant could be obtained, was also given. As each plant was shown, advice was given on position, size, type of soil, whether happy in a pot or open ground, whether easy to grow or whether they should be nurtured,

A selection of plants was available for members to purchase.
