Bedding plants are a range of plants that change with the seasons. Bedding plants are either once-flowering annual plants or, like wallflowers, they are perennials but treated as annuals.
Bedding plants can be used in traditional flower beds, or in the more modern way as fillers and in pots and containers.
No other group brings such exuberant colour, they have two peak periods – springtime for over-wintered bedding plants and summer for the main display, but are available in the interim periods to suit the weather.
Bedding plants can be planted to give summer, winter or spring colour.
The main aim of summer bedding is to give a mass of colour in flower beds and in tubs, window boxes and hanging baskets in July, August and September. The plants used for summer bedding are usually half hardy annuals such as Petunia, Nemesia and Busy Lizzie. These plants cannot tolerate low temperatures and can only be planted out after the danger of frost has passed Winter flowering pansies, primroses and polyanthus are tolerant of cool conditions.
These plants are available in garden centres from late August on and are usually planted in September and October. Spring bedding, such as double daisies, daffodils and tulips can be planted in October and November after summer bedding plants have been removed.
