Making the most of bedding plants
Our beautiful bedding plants can add a splash of colour to beds, borders, containers, window boxes and hanging basket. Take a look at our tips for planting and keeping them looking their best.
1. Choose your location wisely. Plants should be spaced roughly 20cm apart and planted in full sun or part shade (not areas with no direct sunlight as this can cause unnecessary stretching in the plants).
2. Dig a hole that is big enough for the plant roots to sit in but not so deep that the foliage will be covered too.
3. Squeeze the underside of the plant pack to gently remove them and place into the hole, filling up the sides with soil. Don’t do your planting during the hottest part of the day as it can cause heat stress in the plants.
4. Once your plants have been filled in with soil give them a generous watering. Don’t forget to water them regularly – every day during warm weather – as the soil should always feel damp to the touch.
