Every year we always look forward to the start of Spring, waiting in anticipation of the first deliveries of bedding plants to arrive, flush with colour and smelling glorious.
As Gardeners we will need to start adapting to our change in weather and climate, which will in turn change our plant choices and most importantly the growing season. Choosing more drought tolerant plants will enable our gardens to bloom through hot summers and they will be more hardy when it comes to the wet winters too.
A good way to identify a drought tolerant plant is the colour of their leaves. The majority have sliver or grey green as these light colours, as it reflects the harsh rays of the sun.

What is the difference between perennials, annuals and biennial plants?
Perennial plants typically die off in the winter and produce new growth in the Spring, lasting around three years or more. Every year at Polhill we have an extensive collection of Herbaceous Perennials in our plant department, which gives customers plenty of choice and variety to pick the right plant for their garden!
Annuals, as the name suggests, bloom only once a year. Sadly once you have enjoyed the beautifully colour and fragrance from your favourite annual, it will die off completely.
However, if you’re lucky, plants such as Cosmos for example may leave some seeds behind! This won’t always be the case though. Biennial plants such as Dianthus (known as Sweet William) and Hollyhocks will bloom in the first year as well as the second.
