Bergenia

Bergenia species are adaptable plants that are relatively hardy and are able to cope with poor soil conditions. They thrive in sun or shade with humus-rich soil. Planting in partial shade with cool moist conditions will develop lush foliage, whereas full sun will encourage flower production at the expense of the leaves. They require little care other than removal of spent flowers and dead foliage to keep them looking neat and tidy. Propagate by division after flowering.

How to: Cut back Aquilegia

Aquilegia - also known as Columbine, or Granny's Bonnets, a staple plant of cottage style planting, and a generous self-seeder. There's nothing quite like a mass of them to create the pretty, frothy effect so sought-after in informal planting, but left to their own devices, they can take over your borders and can become quite a nuisance.

Diascia - About 50 species of annuals and perennials from southern Africa make up this genus in the foxglove (Scrophulariaceae) family. These plants fill an important niche in rockeries, containers, and perennial borders. Perennial Border, Outdoor Garden, Plants, Garden, Front Garden, Foxglove, Perennials, Plant Finder, Light Well

Diascia

Easily grown in a sunny position with light well-drained soil, the perennials require a climate with a fairly mild winter, but the annuals thrive almost anywhere. In general, the plants in this genus are tolerant of light to moderate frosts. Routine deadheading will extend the flowering season. Water well during dry periods. The perennials sometimes self-layer or they can be propagated from cuttings. Raise the annual forms from seed.

 In pots, feed annually in late winter using a slow release fertiliser described as "suitable for natives”, or any low phosphorus variety.
