Bedding Plants

Bedding plants are a wonderful way to brighten up your garden and add some instant colour. These plants can go in borders, beds, baskets and tubs. As the risk of frost is now over it is safe to put them straight into your garden. Pansys, Busy Lizzies, Geranium and Osteospurmum are amongst some of the popular bedding plants. Bedding plants need to be watered regularly and dead headed to allow new growth. Multi purpose compost is fine for general bedding plants. You may want to add a fertiliser to the soil when planting such as Bone Meal, to give it extra nutrients and help with growth. General bedding like to be grown in a sunny position but will tolerate slight shade.
