Description

Our Perennial Drought Tolerant Collection is a hand-picked selection of garden-ready perennials, meticulously chosen by our expert growers to thrive in dry conditions. Cultivated at our Herefordshire nursery, each plant is selected for its ability to withstand drought while providing beauty and colour to your garden. As a testament to our commitment to quality, all our perennials are grown on-site, ensuring they have excellent breeding, are well-established and ready to flourish without constant watering. Perennial Drought Tolerant Collections can support gardeners in their pledge for water conservation and typically require less maintenance, making them ideal for busy gardeners or for the gardens hard-to-reach areas. Additionally, these plants often have deeper root systems, allowing them to access water and nutrients more efficiently, thereby reducing the need for fertilisers and soil amendments. Drought-tolerant plants can contribute to a more sustainable garden ecosystem by attracting pollinators and supporting local wildlife, environmental matters which are a core value at Golden Valley Plants. With a diverse range of species to choose from, our collection offers gardeners the opportunity to create impactful garden landscapes that thrive even in challenging conditions, while also promoting environmental stewardship. Whether you're looking to conserve water, minimise maintenance, or support biodiversity, our Drought Tolerant Collection provides perfectly hardy garden-ready plants. Each hand-picked selection offers a variety of colours, textures, and forms, ensuring a visually appealing garden that flourishes year after year with minimal effort. Please note that the selection chosen will vary throughout the seasons to ensure you are always provided with a point of interest and our healthiest plants that are perfectly garden ready.

Planting Conditions

When planting your Perennial Drought Tolerant Collection, we highly recommend prioritising the use of well-drained soil to prevent waterlogging, a common issue in arid climates. Choosing a sunny location is suggested as most drought-tolerant plants thrive in full sun. Ensure proper spacing between your collection of plants to allow for optimal root growth and air circulation. Incorporating organic matter into the soil will improve moisture retention and fertility. Mulching helps conserve soil moisture and suppress weed growth. These measures create an ideal environment for your Drought Tolerant Collection to establish and flourish, showcasing their resilience and beauty in your garden despite dry conditions.

Watering & Feeding

For the Perennial Drought Tolerant Collection, we recommend adopting a conservative watering approach, providing deep but infrequent watering to encourage deep root growth and drought resistance. Water newly planted specimens regularly to establish their root systems as they establish, then gradually reduce watering frequency as they mature. During prolonged dry spells, monitor soil moisture levels and water as needed to prevent wilting. Fertilise sparingly, as drought-tolerant plants generally have lower nutrient requirements. Apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in Spring to support healthy growth. With minimal watering and modest feeding, this collection will thrive even in challenging dry conditions.

General Care

Maintain the health of your Perennial Drought Tolerant Collection with minimal care and occasional pruning. We highly recommend deadheading spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and remove any diseased or damaged foliage promptly to prevent the spread of pests or diseases. In late Winter or early Spring, prune back any dead or leggy growth to promote new growth and maintain a tidy appearance. Monitor for signs of stress, such as wilting or yellowing leaves, and adjust watering accordingly. With regular monitoring and light pruning, your collection will remain vibrant and resilient year after year.
