Spring, summer, autumn and winter, bedding plants can be used all year round in pots, containers, baskets and borders. Not only are they are easy to grow but they are also a very cost effective way to add instant impact and colour to any garden. Whatever the season, there is always a great range of plants to choose from in our garden centre.

Bedding plants describe a style of planting rather than specific plants. They comprise of:

Biennials: Plants which complete their life cycle over two seasons.

Tender Perennials: Plants which live at least 3 years but require frost protection during cold months.

Half-Hardy Annuals: Plants which complete their life cycle in one season and can only be planted out after all risk of frost has passed.

Hardy Annuals: Plants which usually sown directly in the ground and will stand frost.


Please ask the staff in our garden centre for more information and advice about using bedding plants in your garden.
