Potted Colour

Flowers will brighten any day and potted colour is a quick and easy way to brighten any part of the house or garden. Most potted colour are annuals, so they are short lived, but they will flower almost constantly. Often they are seasonal, so you can change your garden from winter to summer, to ensure you have colour all year round. They are suitable to grow in containers, hanging baskets or in garden beds and will respond well to regular fertiliser. If you are thinking you would like to have colour and flowers all year round, then you can plant different varieties during different seasons.
