Click to skip to:Colourful Bedding Plants | Downside Nursuries

Tender patio and bedding plants add warmth and colour to your summer garden. We grow on site a wide variety – something for every situation, sun and shade, e.g. fuchsias, geraniums, trailing petunias and many more!

Most of our seed raised bedding plants are offered in single colour packs as well as mixed to help you get your colour scheme just right. If you’re planning a large scheme, please remember that orders for cutting material need to be booked in September and seed-raised material by January at the very latest.

Bedding varieties change seasonally –please visit us to view all.  The list below represents some of our current selection, but please remember this doesn’t necessarily mean it will be in stock on the day you visit!  Conversely, there will be additions to our list during the year, so if you are looking for something particular, do ask – we might be able to help. Call us on 01225 862 392 or email us.

Our sweet peas are ready from March, plain colours and mixed. We also have plenty of the Matucana variety.

Impatiens New Guinea – 1.5L pots available in a variety of colours from mid May.
