Plant this Se­dums (right) are bril­liant plants for sunny spots in the gar­den, flow­er­ing from late sum­mer right through to first frosts: great for the bees, and drought tol­er­ant, too. The fleshy fo­liage comes in a range of shades. Height and spread varies, but ex­pect a max­i­mum of 60cm x 60cm.

Sow this If thoughts of win­ter have got you down, sow sweet pea a seeds for sum­mer 2019. These hardy rdy plants will grow steadily through win­ter on a shel­tered pa­tio or in a cold frame, ready to trans­plant in spring. ‘Earl Grey’ has pe­tals streaked in mauve and pur­ple against white. Read this Lush new book Flower Colour Guide, by New York florists Dar­roch and Michael Put­nam, shows off 400 flow­ers along­side sug­gested colour schemes and care guides. It’s the per­fect source for plan­ning next year’s gar­den re­vamp.
