    the only " bedding " I ever grow is cosmos
  • I like Nicotiana, easy from seed.
    Busy Lizzie, although they don’t grow as tall as the plants mentioned above.

    Not sure if it counts as bedding. I grow ammi majus to plug gaps. It's white so ticks that box for you. My other favourite is snap dragons😁. Remind me of being a kid.

    You might be as well to go the garden centre and make a decision based on what's available!  Bedding plants have been selling out incredibly fast at the ones round here.

    I dont plant bedding as such but I have nicotiana alata, Californian poppies and love in a mist that self seed. I always scatter some mesembryanthium and sow some calendula and tagetes for pots etc.

    And definitely worth trying some white verbenas and calibrahoas. For a more aethereal look, I'd suggest euphorbias, like diamond frost, they fill in gaps very elegantly or great to soften edges of pots.

    Garden Centres aren't open here yet  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Loving all the pearl clutching at the idea of bedding plants if annuals can't be a part of a pleasurable garden.
