Dandelion

A golden blaze in the May meadows and banks. Basal rosettes of leaves deeply lobed or toothed (dent de lion), flowers are composed of bright yellow ray – florets. This plant can be found growing in temperate regions of the world, in lawns, on roadsides, on disturbed banks and shores of water ways, and other areas with moist soils. T. officinale is considered a weed, especially in lawns and along roadsides, but not by us!

Ragged Robin OUT OF STOCK AT PRESENT – COMING SOON – A SUITABLE REPLACEMENT PLANT WILL BE SENT IF ORDERING NOW

A lovely perennial with dainty pink flowers with ragged petals. Looks terrific in a wetland meadow with meadow buttercup. Found along roads and in wet meadows and pastures. In Britain it has declined in numbers because of modern farming techniques and draining of wet-lands and is no longer common. This is a tough and reliable but well behaved perennial for the damp border, bog garden, edge of a pond or damp wildflower meadow.
