Helenium

Jeff demonstrates how to plant Helenium for a terrific, bright addition to the summer border.

Helenium are very colourful plants, making them incredibly attractive to birds and bees. Their bright shades and popularity with wildlife will add tonnes of character to your garden. An abundance of huge daisy like flowers, with bright petals surrounding an inner disc, are produced throughout summer into early Autumn. These great plants will be most effective in a sunny border location, but they can be grown in shaded areas and are suitable for containers. They are available in a range of shades and will make a wonderful addition to any garden.
