Bedding Plants


Summer bedding plants provide the most colourful garden displays, but there are plenty of autumn bedding plants to choose from, and lots more bedding plants for winter and spring! Many can be bought as bedding plant plugs which are easily grown on for planting out later. If that sounds like too much effort then buy our garden-ready bedding plants online, delivered direct to your door, and ready for planting straight into your garden.


If you need a little inspiration why not browse our Top 10 picks of summer bedding and winter bedding plants. For more information on how to grow bedding plants, take a look at our article for some expert advice.
