Plant of the week: Aster Autumn Jewels
Asters are a hardy perennial which are popular due to their colourful daisy like flowers which appear from the end of summer and throughout Autumn!
The Autumn Jewel series are a compact dwarf variety (35cmx35cm) which are perfect for containers, pots and garden borders. They are also loved by both bees and butterflies as well as other pollinators!
Quick fact: The Autumn Jewel series has been bred specifically for its compact shape and for flowering earlier than other Aster varieties
Asters are low maintenance but prefer to be placed in full to partial sun whilst being planted into moist soil conditions.
