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 plants together by season, allowing you to pair together plants that have a similar lifespan.
How to Care for Bedding Plants
Bedding plants are usually planted out in April to June for summer bedding plants and either later in the year or early in spring for autumn/winter bedding plants. 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 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!
