Herbaceous perennials are available in hundreds of varieties and are the kind of plant which suit all gardens, large or small. The Latin ‘perennis’ translates to ‘many years’ and relates to their ability to grow back year after year.


F Bradley and Sons have a wide range of herbaceous perennials available. These plants flower annually between autumn and spring, often attracting bees and beautiful butterflies to their blooms. Herbaceous perennials can be used as fillers between shrubs, planted between trees to cover the ground and grown in containers. Alternatively, they flourish perfectly well when planted on their own.


Herbaceous perennials live for two or more years. They are soft stemmed, not woody, and very easy plants to take care of. Trimming these plants after flowering autumn improves their appearance and ability to flower. Cutting them back completely restores a sense of order to the garden but eliminates attention in the winter such as form and structure. After cutting back herbaceous perennials, you should mulch and fertilise to encourage flowering and continued growth.


These plants add colour and texture to your garden every summer and pair well with evergreen plants. If you would like to find out more about herbaceous perennials in Knaresborough and the range available at F Bradley and Sons, please contact us.
