🌺Plant of the Week🌺
The Plant of the week this week is:
Veronica Longifolia 'First Glory'
Upright, long lasting blue flower spikes are carried from early to late summer, above a compact mound of bright green foliage. It's height and spread is 40cm. It likes full sun/partial shade. It is a hardy plant and attracts bees and butterflies. A must for your garden!
Barry's Tip- to make the flowering period longer, take the flowers off as soon as you see any seed pods forming. As soon as the plant shows signs of finishing flowering altogether, chop back to 3 - 4 inches tall and there is a good possibility that you will have a second flowering from mid September onwards.
