Bedding Plants

Jase3Jase3 Posts: 1

Hi looking for some advice around bedding plants as a total novice. The front of my house has a bed of which the builder put various plants in it, one section is a mess so im looking for recommendations of low maintenance plans that dont grow too tall and preferably dont have flowers.

The existing plans on the rest of the bed are tall and have flowers, so think it needs lower ones at the front but I cant find anything without flowers in various garden centres that doesnt end pretty tall

Thanks in advance

    Hi Jase and welcome image

    It would be really helpful if you could post a photo or two of the bed so we can help you decide on your options.

    To post a photo you can either click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post - or put them on a photo-hosting website and post the link.

    It'll also help us to help you if you tell us whereabouts roughly you live, the way the garden faces (N,S,E or W) and a description of the soil.

    And a 'technical' point to help - the term 'bedding plants' means the sort of flowering plants you buy from the garden centre and plant out in beds and tubs and hanging baskets just for the summer and then pull them up and put them on the compost heap when the winter arrives.  

    So if you've been looking at 'bedding plants' that's why you've not found the sort of thing you've very wisely decided that you want for your garden. image
