Hi I'm looking for a plant for the front of the border that will flower a long time throughout summer.

Any ideas please.

    I wouldn't put TT at the front. It gets big and sprawling
    It's one for the middle

    Dianthus.  Gazania if it's sunny

    I have Totally Tangerine @corby008 and love it too. I’ve also divided it and now have 3 😊

    Aspect, type of soil, other planting nearby - all these have an effect on the choices  :)

    Scabiosa? Is three months long enough?
    Nemesia. They seem to flower for months and months. There are some gorgeous colours - from pinks and purples to oranges, yellows and rich reds. I have only grown them in pots though, so I am not sure what their spreading habit is. Mine have survived the winter but they are very easy to take cuttings from.

    Welsh poppies will go all summer long if you deadhead them. Small, window box dahlias if you don't have a slug problem. Short cat mint.
