Bedding Plants

Discover our range of spectacular plants for hanging baskets, tubs, troughs and borders.  

These plants are a wonderful addition to the permanent framework of shrubs and evergreens that live in your garden all year round. They provide a new season of interest when you can try something different – perhaps a new variety or new colour scheme.

They can be bold, colourful and also fun: – try vegetables in baskets and planters as they are as ornamental as they are nutritious. There is no end to what you can achieve and our team of experts will help you to make the best selection for your available space.

We also carry a bespoke range of hanging baskets and planters for you to add instant impact to your garden.

May's Top Tips

Deadheading flowers is very simple. As plants fade out of bloom, pinch or cut off the flower stem below the spent flower and just above the first set of full, healthy leaves. Repeat with all the dead flowers on the plant.
Nature will bless you with a second wave of blooms to enjoy even more.
