Bedding Plants

Bedding plants, also known as annuals, have one growing season. Most summer annuals enjoy moist soil and a sunny spot and are, for the most part, fairly easy to grow. They develop quickly so are perfect to bulk out borders, containers and hanging baskets. Bright and colourful, they can often be grown from seed and with a little bit of care can continue flowering throughout the season. Once the Autumn arrives, we get a lovely selection of winter bedding such as cyclamen and primroses.

The Hertfordshire Garden Centre has a huge choice to add instant colour to your garden. Sought-after examples include sweet peas, fuchsias, geraniums and lobelia. They are a popular choice for gardeners looking to add colour, texture, and variety to their outdoor spaces. These plants tend to have brightly coloured flowers which is ideal for attracting pollinators. This helps to build strong plants and is vital for the local ecosystem. They can be easy to grow from seed but plugs and potted plants are available for more instant results.

Local growers such as R&S Barnwell, Bryants Nursery and Rainbow Nursery supply us with many of our bedding plants.

Finding the right spot for your plants can give them the best start in your garden. The amount of sunlight, drainage and type of soil you have is key to how successful your plants settle into their new surroundings. Doing a little research or asking our knowledgeable team will mean your garden will look its best in a very short amount of time.
