Autumn Colour

Plant bedding plants such as wallflowers, bellis, primulas and winter pansies for fantastic colourful displays.

If summer containers are looking past their best, re-plant them with fresh winter bedding plants.

Now that colder weather is approaching, protect half-hardy plants with fleece or bring into a frost-free greenhouse.

Plant daffodil bulbs, tulip bulbs and allium bulbs for a glorious spring display.

Plant out ornamental trees and shrubs.
