Popular autumn and winter bedding plants
Pansies - An iconic plant with varying colour combinations in its flowers, the Pansy is a popular choice for a late-winter bedding plant. Grow Pansies where they’ll get around 6 hours of sun per day, and plant them in rich, well-draining soil. These plants are very cold hardy, and will begin to slow when temperatures rise in spring. Why not pair them with some decorative pots for double the interest? One of the most popular winter flowering plants
Primula - Primulas come in many shapes and colours, though the most popular winter and spring type is Polyanthus. These plants prefer moist, fertile soil and are tolerant of semi-shade areas. They’re hardy as well as resilient, and will benefit from deadheading to keep them flowering throughout the season.
Bellis - These plants are more commonly known as Daisies, but they’re a far cry from the Daisies that grow on your lawn. Bellis feature large, almost pom-pom-like flowers in a range of shades, and are suitable for use in planters and containers, borders or as ground cover. They like being in full sun, and prefer moist but well-draining soil.
Wallflowers - Although the word ‘wallflower’ might be used to describe someone who is shy, the Wallflower plant is far from it! Bursting out in colourful blooms in yellows, oranges, reds and purples, Wallflowers bring sheer joy to a spring border. They’re also scented, which means that they’re a joy for both the eyes and the nose!
