Bedding doesn’t have to be all limp, lacklustre marigolds and petunias. There’s a wealth of newer, strong-growing varieties to transform your beds and borders into a reliable carnival of colour, from summer and beyond.
A favourite of ours here at Thompson & Morgan, these azalea-flowered Snapdragons always look superb in beds and borders and can be cut for indoor vases. Their heirloom appearance is almost magical and the blooms are also gently fragrant.
Our customers have voted with their feet on this one and ‘Lotto’ now outsells the traditional ‘Organdy’ variety. ‘Lotto’ is bigger and better, with lovely big clear flowers atop lush green foliage. It’s robust whatever the weather and resists any trouble the UK weather gives it!
Absolutely stunning and a constant favourite with our customers and staff! At 2 feet high, rudbeckias are a great middle border plant, with flowers from mid-summer, but lasting well into October. ‘Cherry Brandy’ is very effervescent ruby red colour and lasts 2 weeks in a vase.
