LAY OF THE LAND
They say the best things come in small packages. Our family run garden centre located in the Yorkshire Dales town of Settle is no exception. Founded in spring 2012 by the Lay family, our little ‘pocket’ garden centre sells beautiful plants, pots, gifts and all sorts of other gardening related wares the discerning gardener might need. We also have a café / coffee shop with great coffee... (and other tasty delights too).
Salvias are aromatic, often long flowering, often brightly or unusually coloured, and usually attractive to pollinators. They are diverse in habit, hardiness, form and leaf size, but they all share common traits. As garden plants they are pretty unfussy – about the only thing they don’t like is excessive wet, especially in winter. They are often easy to propagate, so even the tenderer ones can be overwintered with care. They are often very striking, and they come in such an array of size and form that there will be one for almost every place in the garden. They are good, for instance, as underplanting for shrub roses, as the aromatic nature of their leaves will deter aphids, and the shrubby types, such as ‘Hot Lips’, ‘Nachtvlinder’ or ‘Joy’, will form a dense undercover. This has the benefit of preventing blackspot spores, which may have overwintered on decayed leaves on the surface of the soil, from splashing back up on to the foliage of the roses in heavy rain.
Salvia make great pot plants, focal points, feature plants and the supporting cast; witness the great curled silver leaves of Salvia argentea, the statuesque ‘Amistad’, the long flowering and tough Caradonna. They attract bees and other pollinators, and many have herbal or culinary uses too. Plant some salvia in your garden – you won’t regret it!
