With bright green scalloped edged leaves that sit under clusters of delicate lime green flowers, Irish silk is a hardy perennial that will fill your garden with colour and volume. Flowering from July to August, this Alchemilla will bring late summer colour to your garden whilst attracting wildlife and pollinators. Preferring heavy, well-drained soil and dappled shade this plant is best placed at the front of your borders where it will form a wonderful blanket of colour but is suitable for well drained containers or rock gardens. Free growing and eager to spread, you should plant with plenty of room to spread and cut back the foliage in late summer to encourage new leaves and flowers.

Plants not for consumption

Right Packaging

As an online plant store, we recognise the need to protect the environment and have thought very carefully about the packaging we use and where we buy it from to make sure your plants turn up in good condition with the least impact on the environment.

When it comes to packaging, our philosophy takes the following into account:

Sustainability - all of the packaging we used can be fully reused, recycled or composted. And, in the unfortunate event that it does make its way to landfill, it will biodegrade, leaving nothing but humus behind.

The right packaging for the job - we want our plants to arrive in perfect condition so we have designed packaging that holds your plants safely and securely inside the box, meaning they turn up in great condition.

What's our packaging made from?

Our outer packaging is made from corrugated cardboard. This cardboard can withstand the weight of your plants and is not susceptible to moisture so will remain strong and stable until your plants are delivered and you’re ready to unpack them. Not only that, it will keep your plants safe and undamaged in transit.

As well as being perfect for keeping your plants safe, corrugated cardboard is easy to recycle and is in keeping with our commitment to ensure we use the more environmentally friendly packaging as possible.

Packaging sustainability

We have chosen to partner with a packaging supplier that has the same environmental values as us. All packaging uses 85% recycled material and is 100% recyclable and compostable. This commitment to the environment is backed up by a Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation and ISO 14001 accreditation for their environmental management system.
