Cozy Companions - We are not perennial growers, but we have been using all types of plant material in our gardens with bulbs and have recommended doing so for over 20 years! We have friends who grow plants in the U.S. and have offered them to us for our catalogue. Most will take a season or two to get established.  We find it easy to plug them in with planted bulbs to form shoes and socks, carpets and plant combinations. We're sure you'll enjoy them in your garden, especially when you see how they extend and expand your blooming season! Deep plugs (2 1/4" x ~ 4") unless otherwise noted.
