SUMMER BEDDING

By Paul, 02/05/2013 8:02 am

We now have ready a large selection of summer flowering bedding plants just in time for the May Bank Holiday weekend. You’ll still have to keep an eye out for any late frosts, especially for tender options such as Begonias & Marigolds but there are still plenty of hardier options if you want to get started but live in a frost pocket. These include Alyssum, Antirrhinums, Mimulus, Cineraria Silver Dust & Stocks, all of which can stand a frost once hardened off. Even Petunias & Geraniums will tolerate light ground frosts once hardened off. If you are lucky enough to live in a milder spot or be able to offer plants a little additional protection with fleece or plant up containers undercover, then there is a wide range available. You don’t have to make elaborate bedding schemes like the ones you see in municipal parks, spectacular though they are, a few bright bedding plants in herbaceous & shrub borders can enliven these spots.  We are optomistic that the weather will be better this summer than last year and what better way to make the most of your outdoor spaces that quick growing, colourful Bedding plants!
