Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants - Ready to Reveal their Frilly Knickers!

Following the cancellation of this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants are going ahead with the planned launch of their new star ‘bloomer’ – Anemone Frilly Knickers, to coincide with what would have been the first day of the Show on 6 July, 2020!

Anemone Frilly Knickers is a beautiful new mutation from Anemone Dreaming Swan. Its delicate flowers appear fully double when in bud, opening to semi-double, ruffle edged, frilly petals, which inspired nursery owners, Rosy and Rob Hardy, to give the plant its fun and frivolous name!

Anemone Frilly Knickers has abundant soft white blooms, flushed with pale violet, with a striking deeper violet reverse on the petals.

This easy to grow perennial is set to be a popular addition to any sunny or semi shady border, providing strong and sturdy growth, with a prolonged flowering season, from June through to October.

Commenting Rosy Hardy said, “We were really looking forward to RHS Hampton Court as we had the honour of being featured as Master Grower this year. We were also looking forward to introducing Anemone Frilly Knickers to visitors to the Show, as we know is going to be a big favourite with gardeners as it is very easy to grow and has such attractive and long flowering blooms. Although we obviously won’t be able to sell our Frilly Knickers at the Show this time, we are still able to offer to gardeners, as we have plenty of plants in stock for both orders online and direct from the Nursery.”

Anemone Frilly Knickers is available in 1 litre pots, costing £7.50, from Hardy’s Cottage Plant’s Nursery in FreeFolk, Hampshire or online at www.hardysplants.co.uk
