Better known as Thrift, the Armeria are tough little plants that thrive in coastal areas and do well in most sunny spots.
As you can see, they are also butterfly-friendly. Available in 1 litre pots at £3.29. Available pink, white and red.
While we are in the A section we will also give a mention to the Aubretia. Pictured are Kitte Blue in 1 litre pots for £3.29, still in flower. Our other Aubretias are beginning to come to the end of their flowering period but can still be planted out for future years: red, pink and pale blue - £4.50 each.
We pick out some of the current highlights at the Katie's Garden nursery.
