Perennials are generally a really easy group of plants to grow. There’s a huge variety of choice ranging from ground hugging to head-high clumps. There are perennials for sun or shade as well as all different soil types, ranging from wet to dry. They will fill flower borders with leaves and flowers from early spring right through to late autumn.
Their other great advantage is that, at this time of the year, a lot of them grow really quickly, giving much needed impact. This brings interest whilst waiting for the slower-growing plants to catch up. So, if you’re planning a new border or need a section of the garden to look good quickly, here’s a selection of different height plants to fill the border.
