We have been growing quality bedding plants for over 30 years and they are still a big part of our nursery production. Each year we grow over 4 million quality patio and basket plants, across hundreds of varieties.

It takes minutes to bring plants down from our nursery into the sales area, guaranteeing that they are wonderfully fresh.

Summer patio and basket plants are so versatile, they provide colour from late spring right through to the first frosts. They are ideal for beds, borders, patios, tubs, pots, hanging baskets and window boxes. Popular species are impatiens, geraniums, fuchsias, begonias and petunias.

At Botany Bay you can purchase your bedding plants in a number of ways:

  • Plug plants
    You can grow these on yourself in your greenhouse or plant them directly into your container or hanging basket. Available from the middle of March

  • Pack bedding
    Our range is ideal for larger scale projects in the garden when you need a quantity of the same plant, or alternatively you can hand select individual plants to create your own design of hanging basket or container. Available from early April
