What plant, what season?
Most bedding and basket plants are not frost hardy and only last one year. These are usually safe to plant out during May and June but beware of late frosts. They will flower continually all through the summer and early autumn.
Hardy perennials are increasingly popular as they re grow and flower year after year and can be planted at any time. These are available for sale from approximately April through until August.
We have the following available for sale in our plant nursery:
- Digitalis (common name Foxglove)
