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.

Calibrachoa 'Kabloom Terracotta'

Mini Petunia

Smaller flowering Calibrachoa plants are fast catching up with blousy petunias in the popularity stakes thanks to their heavy flowering, ease of care and garden performance. In order to bring you the best prices on these trendsetting plants we've secured the first ever variety that can be grown commercially from seed. This means we can now offer these mini petunia plants in our economical plug strips and pass the savings on to you. These weatherproof petunias will stand proud in the garden all summer long even in the heaviest summer shower.

Following the success of our mixed colour option last season, we have pulled out the unique Calibrachoa 'Kabloom Terracotta' as a stand-alone variety following feedback from customers. Not only do the vibrant flowers make the perfect frothy filler for any mixed pot, the blooms and stems aren't sticky like standard petunias, making for easy deadheading and maintenance. Height 25cm (10"). Spread: 30cm (12").

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").
