Salvias Unpicked

June 2020

Explore our in depth guide to a most versatile plant that your garden can not be without. Covering hardy annuals, tender perrienals and hardy types, these widely planted, colourful jewels are not to be overlooked.

Salvias are incredibly versatile in the garden and provide either a perennial foil or a pop of annual colour to your borders. They are exceptional in wildlife gardens as they are perfect for pollinators, adding a platform for bees and hoverflies and overlaying a calming buzz to your natural soundtrack.

Because they are so loved by pollinators, Salvias planted alongside a vegetable garden can introduce important pollinators, and for some plants such as roses, peonies and members of the asteraceae family, they can protect from fungal diseases.
