  • Lets talk about them



    This is such an understated flower - but absolutely invaluable! Hard to describe but simple mini umbel like flowers, with a really delicate sweet scent. Flowers all summer long,  incredibly easy to grow and low maintenace. fabulous filler in any bouquet, a real airy wispy element, it’s not to be overlooked.

  • Notes From The Garden




    A true cut and come again. Candytuft will throw at least 5+ new stems from where make your first harvest - so many sure you cut really deep. I personally prefer to sow a 2nd succession of Giant Candytuft as the summer the progesses the new stems start to get quiet spindly.
