Annual Plants


Annual plants fall under two categories - hardy and half-hardy. Hardy annuals can be grown outdoors and will tolerate cooler tempratures, whereas the more tender half-hardy annuals need protection and must not be planted out until all risk of frost has passed. These delightful summer flowers add colour and interest to beds, borders, containers and hanging baskets. Use the selections in the left menu to select the right plants for your garden.

Summer Border Collection

Our fantastic summer border collection will contain 18 geranium plug plants and 18 petunia plug plants.

Our fantastic selection of Geranium Jackpot varieties are weather-tolerant F1 hybrid plants with stunning blooms that are ideal for brightening beds and borders all summer long. Consisting of Geranium 'Jackpot Pink', 'Jackpot Red' and 'Jackpot White'. Unlike some cultivars, the weather resistant flowers won't shatter when it rains making them perfect for our unpredictable UK summers. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 35cm (14").

Although technically perennial, Pelargoniums are only half hardy and therefore normally treated as annuals in the UK. However, with care, they may be overwintered in a frost free greenhouse.

A fantastic selection of floriferous petunias. These large, coloured flowers, will blend together beautifully to fill a border, flower bed or basket for months and months over the summer time. Consisting of Petunia 'Express Blue', 'Express Burgundy' and 'Express Peppermint Vein'. These petunias are easy-to-grow and very rewarding in all summer weather. Why not pot up each individual variety in baskets and containers where they will look equally as good planted together. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 30cm (12").

We'll also include 100g geranium fertiliser and 100g petunia fertiliser where just one application feeds your geraniums and petunias for the whole season. These high quality fertiliser granules release a constant, controlled supply of nutrients to your plants without wastage or leaching.
