  • Lets talk about them



    Often overlooked by gardeners in search of something more exciting, the unpretentious Lady's Mantle is extremely useful for both its foliage and its flowers. The lovely pleated leaves that are soft grey-green with scalloped margins. 


    The blossoms of Alchemilla mollis are just as extraordinary as the foliage; they consist of airy clouds of tiny, delicate flowers of a priceless chartreuse colour. This most valuable cooling green-yellow is a superb companion to almost all colours, especially violets, blues, whites and best of all, pinks. They also soften the harsher oranges and yellows
