Bedding plants, also know as annuals are so called as they generally will flower once in their lifetime.
They tend to have brightly coloured flowers, and are what most people will be familiar with when you talk about garden plants.
Different bedding plants are available at different times of the year as not all can withstand the changes of warm and cold.
Generally speaking there is a spring range and a winter range.
Spring will include geranium, marigolds, million bells, osteospermum plus many more.
Winter will include cyclamen, pansies, violas, primroses plus many more.
