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.

  • Our best-seller just got better!
It's not that we weren't satisfied with the success of our best-seller, Begonia 'Apricot Shades', but we decided to try hand-blending an 'improved' version. You can expect a broader range of colours and 50% more colour-edged picotees from Begonia 'Apricot Shades Improved' - which means you'll enjoy even more non-stop stunning colour and impact in your garden.

Begonia 'Apricot Shades Improved' is as versatile as it is beautiful! Large, cascading, double blooms will pour from your containers from July to October. You'll be enjoying gorgeous flowers in shades of apricot and orange that reach 6-10cm (2.5-4") in diameter all summer and well into autumn. These tuberous begonias will perform whatever the weather and can be placed in sunny or semi shaded positions. The abundant trailing habit of Begonia Apricot Shades Improved makes them a great value plant for hanging baskets, window boxes and Flower Pouches™, giving you a really impressive display that will light up even a shady corner.

Culinary note: Add the bright coloured petals to sandwiches or salads for a light lemon taste and crisp texture. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Antirrhinum majus 'Madame Butterfly' F1 Hybrid (Garden Ready)

Snapdragon

 Customer Rating
  • The fast-track to a hassle-free garden - just plant, water and enjoy!
  • Quality plants delivered to your door, hardened off and ready to plant out
  • Fully-grown, super-robust, healthy plants

Our garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery. We send them to you 'green' ahead of flowering (but please note some varieties may show a few blooms), which means plants will establish quickly and all their energy goes into producing better roots, so they produce more flowers throughout the season.

Awarded an All American Selection medal for its unusual azalea-shaped snapdragon flowers. Antirrhinum 'Madame Butterfly' creates a riot of colour throughout summer. The unique, double snapdragon petals prevent insects from pollinating the flowers, so they last much longer than single-flowered varieties. Perfect for a long-lasting display in cottage garden beds, borders and containers. This award winning variety also makes a superb cut flower. Height: 65cm (26"). Spread: 45cm (18").


Culinary note: These pretty flowers can be used as garnishes or dressings but can have a bland or sometimes bitter taste. For more details about edible flowers click here.
