Autumn Plants

Autumn is the perfect time to plant out bedding plants for spring flowering. Winter bedding plants are often referred to as Spring bedding plants or even autumn bedding plants. However there’s no need to get confused. Simply put, they are biennials or perennials, which are planted from September to November. Most common bedding plants flower throughout the winter during milder spells, before putting on a burst of vigorous growth in the spring.
