Some of the beauties included are the Tulip, which flowers at this time of year, the Tritoma which is better known as the Red Hot Poker, the Sunflower whose oily seeds we are told are enjoyed by chickens, the Snapdragon, the scented Stock, Sweet William, Polyanthus which was formerly known as “bunch-primrose” we are told, the stunning Peony, spring-flowering Pansy and Daffodil, easy to grow Nasturtium, cottage garden favourites the Lupin and Hollyhock, purple Iris, the Foxglove which the card tells us is the source of the drug digitalis, the quickly spreading Forget-Me-Not, plus the stunning Dahlia and Chrysanthemum, the fragrant Cabbage Rose and the later flowering Aster which puts on a show in September and October. Incidentally the back of the Lupin card tells us it will grow in poor soil as it has the power of utilizing nitrogen from the air to enrich the ground in which it grows making it suitable for any garden. This series is also issued by G Phillips.
