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.

Salvia Collection

Sage

  • Award winning selection
  • 7 months of colour
  • Drought tolerant and fuss-free

We've paired together our two favourite salvia introductions of recent years. Enjoy the reddish-purple flowers of Salvia 'Love and Wishes' alongside the scarlet-red funnels of 'Ember's Wish' - a match made in heaven for border and container displays. 'Love and Wishes' won best new variety at the Grower of the Year awards 2016, and was 3rd place in the 2015 RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year. We think 'Ember's Wish' matches it in looks and performance. Developed in Australia, both are drought-tolerant and fuss-free, and truly hardy for years of enjoyment in UK gardens. Flowering from May to November we can't think of a harder working perennial for your garden. Height and Spread: 75cm (30").

Busy Lizzie 'Accent Mixed'

Impatiens walleriana

Vigorous, versatile and floriferous, Busy Lizzies are guaranteed to brighten up even the most shaded areas of your garden, giving a bold splash of colour all through the summer and well into autumn. It's little wonder they're the nation's favourite bedding plant. They keep blooming through sun or rain! Busy Lizzie 'Accent Mixed' is a compact variety with a magical array of colours in solid shades and bicolours. We removed traditional Busy Lizzies (Impatiens walleriana) from our range several years ago due to the spread of impatiens downy mildew in the UK. Positive reports from gardeners around the UK, along with problem-free results from our technical trials in Suffolk in the past two years, have given us the confidence to bring traditional Busy Lizzies back. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: Use as a colourful garnish in salads or float in cold drinks. For more details about edible flowers click here.
