Grasses are the ultimate architectural plant, adding see-through effects, gentle rustling, autumn colour and winter shapes. They also tolerate a range of conditions, from gravel gardens to solid lumpy clay.
They can be used in borders as individual eye-catchers, large or small, or repeated in drifts to create a natural look, with paths ambling through and between. Some can even be grown in containers, to help soften formal designs.
This range of grasses are able to be used right across the garden. Some give colourful low spread among feature plants, others add enormous striking clumps with wonderful flowering spikes, and others provide extraordinary height.
These four seed packets are individually listed and can be purchased separately or as part of the collection.

Stipa tenuissima 'Pony Tails'.
Wonderfully impressive with its evergreen base clump of fine leaves topped, in summer, with an array of flowering spikes, which turn from silvery green to gold.
Lagurus ovatus 'Hares-tail Grass'.
Lagurus ovatus is probably the most appealing of all the ornamental grasses. The name ‘Hare’s Tail’ perfectly accurately describes the creamy-white flower heads, which are hare's tail-shaped, fur-like and soft to the touch.
Festuca glauca 'Blue Fescue Grass'.
Dainty diminutive Festuca glauca makes a tight mound of steely blue, needle-like blades and is one of the most tactile of the evergreen grasses. They look terrific planted in a silver-blue swathe among taller grasses, the colour is so unexpected it can't help but catch the eye.
Hordeum jubatum 'Squirrel Tail Grass'.
It carries silky, greyish panicles in early and mid summer, which develop a reddish or purple tinge at the tips. Fantastic in massed groups, or around taller, more stately plants. The ultimate architectural plant, adding see-through effects, gentle rustling, autumn colour and winter shapes.
