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.

Busy Lizzie 'Accent Mixed'

Impatiens walleriana

Vigorous, versatile and floriferous, Busy Lizzies are guaranteed to brighten up even the most shaded areas of your garden, giving a bold splash of colour all through the summer and well into autumn. It's little wonder they're the nation's favourite bedding plant. They keep blooming through sun or rain! Busy Lizzie 'Accent Mixed' is a compact variety with a magical array of colours in solid shades and bicolours. We removed traditional Busy Lizzies (Impatiens walleriana) from our range several years ago due to the spread of impatiens downy mildew in the UK. Positive reports from gardeners around the UK, along with problem-free results from our technical trials in Suffolk in the past two years, have given us the confidence to bring traditional Busy Lizzies back. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: Use as a colourful garnish in salads or float in cold drinks. For more details about edible flowers click here.
