Choosing the Right Bedding Plants

When selecting bedding plants, consider the following to create a stunning garden display:

Flower Colour: Choose plants that bloom in different seasons for continuous colour.
Foliage: Mix plants with varied foliage for added texture.
Growth Style: Combine low ground-cover plants with taller, upright varieties for dynamic displays.

When to Plant Bedding Plants

Bedding plants establish best when planted at the right time. For summer bedding, plant in mid-May after the risk of frost has passed. For winter bedding, plant in September or October to give plants time to establish before the cold weather sets in.

Where to Grow Bedding Plants

Good drainage is crucial for bedding plants. Raised beds, containers, and well-prepared garden soil are ideal. Most bedding plants thrive in full sun, but some varieties prefer partial shade. Always check plant labels for specific growing conditions.

How to Plant Bedding Plants in the Ground

To plant bedding plants in your garden, thoroughly weed the area and incorporate plenty of well-rotted compost or leaf mould to improve drainage. Follow our detailed planting guide for the best results.

How to Plant Bedding Plants in a Container

For container planting, use a 50:50 mix of soil-based compost and horticultural grit or sharp sand. Ensure containers have plenty of drainage holes and place stones or terracotta pieces over large holes to prevent compost from washing out. Add a layer of horticultural grit or gravel over the surface after planting to prevent rot.
