What are Bedding Plants?
Bedding plants refer to the plants that are suitable for use in flower beds or raised beds. However, some of these plants can also be grown in containers for patios and balcony gardens. Bedding plants are temporary and decorative, often changing with the season due to their individual requirements. It is for this reason that we group bedding together by season, allowing you to pair together plants that have a similar lifespan.
How to Care for Bedding Plants
Summer bedding plants are usually planted out in April to June. Winter bedding plants are planted out in the Autumn. For more information read our winter bedding plant guide. If ordering plug plants, they may need to be grown on in a well lit, warm location before hardening off and planting out, whereas garden-ready plug plants can be planted straight into beds. Care will depend on the species of plant, but the most important aspects to pay attention to are: watering, deadheading and feeding. Cover all of these elements and you’ll have a thriving display!
