New in July at Hilltop Garden Centre

Hello from the Hilltop team! At Hilltop Garden Centre, we’re more than just a place to buy plants — we’re a community dedicated to making your garden, home, and life bloom brighter. We’ve been specialising in quality plants and friendly customer service for over 75 years, and we're thrilled to share what’s new in store this July. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting out we have something for everyone, so let’s dive into the exciting new arrivals at Hilltop Garden Centre in Clacton on Sea.

Perovskia Atriplicifolia: A Summer Must-Have

Perovskia Atriplicifolia, also known as Russian Sage, is a gorgeous perennial shrub that truly shines towards the end of summer and into early autumn. This strong and sturdy variety is drought-resistant and incredibly hardy, making it a perfect addition to any garden. While it can thrive in partial shade, Perovskia Atriplicifolia performs best in full sun, where its silvery foliage and lavender-blue flowers can be fully appreciated. To get the best from your Russian Sage, plant it up using our fantastic Rocket Gro Organic Compost, available in-store for just £13 for two bags.

Why You Need It: Perovskia Atriplicifolia is perfect for adding height and texture to your garden borders. Its aromatic foliage and long-lasting blooms make it a standout choice for summer and autumn gardens. Plus, it’s low-maintenance, so you can enjoy its beauty without too much effort.

Alstroemeria: The Peruvian Lily

Next up, we have the delightful Alstroemeria, also known as the Peruvian Lily or Dwarf Peruvian Lilly. These long-flowering summer perennials are a popular addition to garden borders and look fantastic in patio pots, such as our glazed outdoor pots with saucers that are on offer this month. With their vibrant blooms and lush foliage, Alstroemeria brings an exotic feel to your planting.

Why You Need It: Alstroemeria is not only beautiful but also versatile. Whether you plant them in your garden beds or in containers or pots, they provide continuous colour throughout the summer. They’re also great for cut flowers, so you can enjoy fresh flowers indoors as well!
