FREE TALK* – ‘Fireworks among the foliage’ with Tom Attwood of Halecat Nursery, Witherslack
Tom will showcase some of the key plants he uses in broader planting schemes to inject the intensity of colour that only some perennials can deliver. Tom likes to think of these flowers as ‘fireworks’ sitting above and amongst the foliage, and stems of their neighbouring plants. This talk will focus on those hardy perennials who flower for months, rather than weeks, in a Cumbrian garden.
