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.

Petunia 'Peach Sundae'

  • T&M Exclusive
  • Ever-changing flower colours
  • Brighten up your hanging baskets all summer long

Ever-changing colour all summer long, no matter the weather! We've tested our petunia plants for weather tolerance and Petunia 'Peach Sundae' laughs in the face of wind, rain, hail and scorching sun. This unusual petunia echoes the colour, tone and flower-power of our best-selling Begonia 'Apricot Shades' with the added bonus of colour-changing flowers. Blooms change daily, moving through yellow, orange and peach leading to stunning summer container displays. Bringing calibrachoa into the breeding programme means more flowers per plant with little need to deadhead faded blooms. The hardy flowers bounce back even after the heaviest summer showers, making what we believe to be one of the best hanging basket petunias on the market. Height and spread: 45cm (18").

Begonia 'Non-stop Citrus' (Garden Ready)

 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.

Just like the other 'Non-stop' varieties, Begonia 'Non-stop Citrus' blooms continuously in a refreshing blend of bright citrus colours. With weather resistant blooms, these long lasting tuberous begonias will keep flowering well into autumn - long after most summer flowering plants have faded. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
