A rarity nowadays, hedgehogs are a valuable gardener's friend, eating slugs, snails and insects.

If you live in an area where they could be present, encourage them to stay by giving them a home in a remote part of the garden.

Reliable and easy to grow, Penstemons are one of the most valuable plants for late summer colour.

Native to North America, hundreds of hybrids have been developed since the early 19th century. With so many varieties available in shades of pink, mauve, lilac or white, there's now a Penstemon for every occasion.

Being easy to grow, any fertile free-draining soil will allow them to flourish when situated in full sun or light shade. They respond well to dead heading too, which is a great way to extend their colour.

Once flowering has finished, prune off the top third and leave the remaining foliage to provide winter protection. When new shoots appear, and once the worst of winter has passed, trim back any old stems as necessary to allow the fresh shoots to develop. Its also the best time to apply a balanced, general-purpose fertiliser to ensure a good show for the year ahead.
