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 garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery.

Not only will you get a strong flash of welcome late season colour, this cheery mix also offers an unusual bubblegum fragrance. Sturdy branching around the main stem ensures a constant supply of flower spikes, making 'Autumn Dragons Mixed' the perfect option for late season home cut flowers. Set this autumn flowering antirrhinum in beds and borders or add to patio pots for a bright and breezy late season display. Height and spread: 60cm (24"). Spread:15cm (6").
