On this page you will find information about bedding plants, Spring flowering bulbs and festive stock
Living for just one year (though some can be protected over Winter e.g. Pelargoniums), these plants are suitable for baskets, pots, window boxes...or teapots, boots and colanders! A strict, old-school-style symmetrical pattern is not compulsory; experiment with bedding plants by mixing them with herbaceous perennials - grasses look fantastic with Cosmos. They can also be used as gap fillers, to replace early flowering herbaceous, or to cover the bare ankles of taller plants.
We buy our plants from two family-run nurseries in Cheshire; the quality really is exceptional. Big hits with our regulars are Scarlet and Hot Pink Bulls Eye Pelargoniums, 'Non-stop' Begonias in a range of eye catching colours, and Cosmos, which flowers from July until the first frosts. Firm favourites, Pansies and Violas, rub shoulders with the more delicate petunias, begonias and pelargoniums, all adding something to a seasonal display, whether it be height, scent, colour, contrast or WOW!
