One of the most versatile summer bedding plants, Begonias are well loved for their large flamboyant blooms.


A common bedding plant and for good reason! These sturdy, sun-loving plants are well suited to hot, dry conditions.


The dainty flowers of lobelia create wonderful dense waterfalls of colour in hanging baskets and containers.


Particularly useful as late summer bedding plants, rudbeckias flower from July through to October.


If you want bedding plants that attract bees look no further than cosmos!


Surely the summer bedding plant with the most exciting blooms!  


Much loved for their architectural flower spikes and incredibly long flowering period.

Incredibly valuable for shadier beds and borders, Impatiens summer bedding plants produce large flowers.

Sweet peas

Sweet peas make fantastic cottage garden bedding plants. Let them scramble up obelisks or netting.

Summer Plants

Summer bedding plants don’t all have to be petunias and marigolds! As well as the more common bedding plants there are a huge range of annual bedding plants you can grow for height, scent and colour, from cornflowers and sweet peas to Rudbeckia and zinnias. Some, such as petunias and geraniums (Pelargoniums) are frost-tender perennials, which are treated as annuals and require frost protection; others are hardy annuals which can be sown directly outside.
