Monarda 'Cambridge Scarlet'

Bergamot

£4.95

Striking and unusual, rich scarlet-red blooms with beautiful, reddish-brown bracts appear in terminal whorls from July to September. This is a popular, aromatic perennial forming a bushy clump of attractive, mid-green leaves which smell of basil and mint and are used to fragrance Earl Grey tea.

It is quite vigorous once established and looks lovely when planted 'en masse' in bold groups next to Black Eyed Susan. Attracting bees and butterflies to the garden, it's strong, bold colour also makes it excellent for offsetting a group of purple-flowering perennials.

Winner of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, it will die back to the ground in winter before bursting back into life again during the spring.

  • Eventual Spread 10cm to 50cm
  • Position Full sun
  • Growth Average

Did You Know?

We grow and keep the majority of our plants outside on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands, over 650 feet above sea level ensuring a hardy plant that starts off well when planted in your garden.

Some leaves on evergreen plants can be damaged in winter but in spring, new leaves will readily replace those damaged. This is quite normal on many evergreen varieties and is preferable to plants grown with excessive protection that show cold shock once planted out and establish less satisfactorily initially.

Many perennials go ‘dormant’ which, in some cases, means that there is little or no top growth apparent between November and March. If you order perennials whilst they are dormant, they may not be visible above the soil level when purchased but will burst into life in spring.

Delivery

 

We want to make the delivery of your order an easy and hassle-free experience. Our couriers are the only ones we’ve found that handle plants with as much tender loving care as we do. It’s normally easier to leave it to us to sort out the finer delivery details, but if you’d like to know the progress of your order please log into your account, or feel free to email us at sales@jacksonsnurseries.co.uk

 

Delivery Cost

Our flat rate charge for plants ordered online or over the telephone is £7.99. This covers most mainland England, Wales and Scotland destinations (See Delivery Area below for exclusions).

Bulb Delivery

Bulb Only Orders: Postage and packaging is £4.99 per order where bulbs are purchased without any other items. Orders upto 2kg will be delivered by Royal Mail and will require a signature. Orders over 2kg will be made by Fedex and can be left in a safe place if you indicate for us to do so during checkout. We aim to deliver Bulb Only orders within 5-7 days although this can take longer during busy periods or when items are out of stock. We will notify you by email on the day your bulbs are dispatched, the email will indicate who will deliver your order. For Royal Mail deliveries please allow up to 14 days from the date of notification for your order to arrive, if your bulbs still have not arrived by this time then please contact us.

 

When bulbs are purchased with other products (excluding Rowlinson products) will be covered by the standard £7.99 delivery charge.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Our larger specimen conifers and bamboos will require a pallet delivery, priced from £30. Pallet orders will need to be signed for and the access must be suitable for a large vehicle access minimum 3 metres wide and 4.5 meters high. Delivery can only be made to addresses where clear access can be gained (e.g. pallets of plants cannot be delivered to upper floor flats or premises where restricted access does not allow delivery vehicles). Most orders that require delivery via pallet will be flagged up during checkout. We reserve the right to send out your order on a pallet if it is a significant volume of items or weight above our standard carriers limits. We can only ship items on a pallet up to 2 metres tall, if the plants you have ordered are above this then where applicable will be cut to the required height.
