ITV Love Your Garden presenter Katie Rushworths top 3 picks for June Astrantia

ASTRANTIA

Why? I love these plants, they're so graceful and delicate and are a must have for your year round garden.

Where? Astrantia will flourish in the middle of a shady border with its colourful blooms. Plant in groups of three to create a stunning spectacle in your garden.

When? Once the first flush of flowers have finished in early June, cut the plant back to its foliage. This encourages new growth which will flower until late summer.


HEBE

Why? This enchanting evergreen shrub will create interest and colour in your garden all year round due to its beautiful blooms and shiny foliage.

Where? As Hebes are so versatile, they can be planted almost anywhere. They will grow in both sunny and shady areas, in containers, borders or rockeries

When? If you have any dull spots in your garden, then a Hebe is perfect. They will have your garden looking richer all through the summer months and well into October.

SALVIA

Why? Growing salvia is a must when creating a year round garden. Their blooms are long-lasting and attract butterflies and other pollinators, which are always good for the garden.

Where? Salvias grow to around 2ft high so are ideal for the middle of a sun-soaked border. Its colourful blooms will bring vibrancy and variety to your garden.

When? Salvias start flowering in June and will last until the first frosts of autumn making them tremendously good value. They are a must for your garden.
