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.

Keep on top of deadheading and new flowers will just keep coming.

Cosmos 'Xanthos' features soft ferny foliage, which quickly and easily fills space in the border, even before the yellow blooms appear! Unusually for Cosmos, 'Xanthos' look great in patio pots too! New on the scene Cosmos 'Xanthos' has already picked up a Fleuroselect Gold Award and evoked much customer comment in T&M's summer trial garden in 2015.
