    I'm growing Candytuft but think it's an annual variety, I didn't realise you could get Perennial varieties too...will have a look at the link.  I love Candytuft, so pretty image

    The perennial one is pretty tough, flowers fairly early in the year. It's seeded itself in cracks in the paving of my terrace, so pretty. My daughter gave me the original plant over 15 years ago.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
