Bedding Plants

Seasonal Bedding Plants

Bedding plants are a beautiful addition to any garden design. They add texture and vibrant colors to window boxes, patio pots, hanging baskets, and borders.

Summer Bedding Plants

The summer season is the ideal time for bedding plants as they offer a wide range of flowering options. These plants can be planted once the danger of frost has passed, typically around April. Summer annual plants will bloom from April until September or October. Bedding plants look fantastic in hanging baskets, window boxes, patio pots, and the border.

You can choose from a variety of summer plants, such as Begonia, Bidens, Bacopa, Calabrichoa, Cosmos, Coleus, Dianthus, Felicia, Lobelia, Petunias, Marigolds, Surfinias, and more. Bedding plants can fill gaps between perennial plants in the border.

To ensure maximum blooms from your bedding, plant them in good quality peat-free compost and add some slow-release fertiliser. In the hot summer months, it is essential to keep the plants well-watered. Regular deadheading of the plants will encourage better blooming them to bloom longer.

If you fancy planting a hanging basket this year, the RHS has a good guide.

Spring Plants

During the spring, you will witness a profusion of spring flowering plants such as Primula, Violas, Pansies, Tulips, Aubretia, Daffodils, and Cyclamen. If you missed planting bulbs during autumn, you can find a range of options that have already started growing and can be transplanted.

Autumn and Winter plants

As your summer plants begin to fade, and the weather cools down, we will have a selection of plants that can replace summer flowers and last through the cold weather. Winter Pansies, Violas, Cyclamen, and Heathers are hardy and long-lasting. Autumn is the best time to plant bare-root wall flowers for spring flowers.
