Pot and Pack Bedding Plants

Colourful Bedding Plants from Wiltshire's Downside Nurseries

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!

Click to skip to:

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.

Sweet pea seed has been difficult to obtain this year. The fresh seed only arrived at the beginning of February and only a limited number of single colours, White Ensign. Noel Sutton (blue) and Air Watden (red). We have a good quantity of Galaxy Mixed and the highly scented heritage variety Matucana. We did manage to sow a little of last year’s seed we had in hand in January but the main crop will not start to be available till mid March.

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

Location: Fuchsias, tuberous Begonias and Geraniums will be in the greenhouse by the car park. Other bedding and hanging baskets will be in the main glasshouse and on the standing out ground

Downside Nurseries Bedding Plants List as at March 2022
Please remember that the list below is correct as at March 2022, but not all of these plants may be available on the day of your visit
