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 'Peach Sundae'

  • New in 2015
  • T&M Exclusive
  • Ever-changing flower colours
  • Brighten up your hanging baskets all summer long

Ever-changing colour all summer long, no matter the weather! We’ve tested our petunia plants for weather tolerance and Petunia ‘Peach Sundae’ laughs in the face of wind, rain, hail and scorching sun. This unusual petunia echoes the colour, tone and flower-power of our best-selling Begonia ‘Apricot Shades’ with the added bonus of colour-changing flowers. Blooms change daily, moving through yellow, orange and peach leading to stunning summer container displays. Bringing calibrachoa into the breeding programme means more flowers per plant with little need to deadhead faded blooms. The hardy flowers bounce back even after the heaviest summer showers, making what we believe to be one of the best hanging basket petunias on the market. Height and spread: 45cm (18").
