At Aylett Nurseries we grow an extensive range of summer, flowering plants to brighten up any garden. Ideal for beds, borders, patios, tubs, pots, hanging baskets and window boxes.
Most bedding plants will need a sunny site in well-prepared soil, be sure to add well-rotted manure or compost and fertiliser before planting. Keep well watered and liquid feed regularly during the season. Also, dead-head regularly.
Summer bedding plants
Remember to plant summer bedding plants in May to early June after the risk of frost has passed. We also have a large range of ready planted hanging baskets and containers, all ready to transform your garden with instant colour.
