Annual Bedding Plants


Annual bedding plants are superb garden fillers because they are so economical! They are a great value way to fill a big area with bright, bold colour. Annual bedding plants are varieties that are not frost hardy and we generally expect to display them for one season only and enjoy their glorious, cheerful show – there are, however, exceptions in our selections below. Some of the most colourful plants we offer for your beds, borders and containers are shown below.
