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.

Nasturtium 'Fruit Salad'

Tropaeolum, Indian Cress

  • Finalist of Plant of the Year 2013 - RHS Chelsea Flower Show
A nasturtium with some restraint! Some 12 years of careful breeding have gone into this exceptional variety after a customer sent Thompson & Morgan an unusual nasturtium with serrated petals. Much more compact than the average annual nasturtium - and generally 'better behaved' in the garden, this is the first bicolour nasturtium with serrated petals. Bred to be sterile, the plants bloom for a much longer time than any other nasturtium and the spectacular bicolour blooms are uniquely perfumed with a lovely sweet and spicy fragrance. Nasturtium 'Fruit Salad' is perfect for hanging baskets or pots and is not currently available from seed! Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 60cm (24").
