Perennials to Grow in the Autumn

The aim of planting some perennials is to get them to germinate, by providing them with a period of stratification (cold conditions required for germination).

Sowing seeds in autumn mimics a process called stratification, which happens naturally in nature – the seeds fall to the ground, and a period of cold weather triggers them to germinate in spring.

This method will also allow us to get a head start on growing our perennials.

Thompson and Morgan have produced a comprehensive list of seeds that can be sown in September and October and even November. So lets get planting.
