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 'Cloud Nine'

  • The perfect petunia for patio pots!
  • Unique flower markings
The latest unique petunia flower from the Crazytunia programme. The breeding team for the Crazytunia series have free reign to create the most unusual blooms on the market and they’ve done it again with Petunia 'Cloud Nine'. Pure white petals with delicate yellow veining and central purple stripes really set this fresh petunia variety out from the crowd. With an upright, compact habit we recommend these petunia plants for patio containers and bedding displays rather than hanging baskets where they might be crowded by other additions. These sturdy petunia plants have been developed to cope with the variable summer weather in the UK, and will bounce back after rain and cope well through dry hot spells too. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Calendula 'Power Daisy'

English Marigold, Marigold, Pot Marigold

  • In constant flower from June through to October
English pot marigolds are a garden favourite - vibrant colours, heavy flowering and great for pollinators. Sadly they don't last long, often burning out and going to seed at the height of summer. Our 'Power Daisy' changes that! Not only does it flower continuously into October, living up to its name this breeding breakthrough allows you to use calendula plants where you've never grown them before! A controlled, spreading habit, plus hundreds of yellow daisy-like blooms make them the perfect new hanging basket plant. With little need for deadheading (the flowers just keep coming without setting seed), utilise the spreading habit in patio pots and as ground cover in the border for a mass of golden colour all summer long. Height and spread 40cm (16").

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

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