Begonia Non Stop Mocca Mix - pack of 24 large plugs

Begonia Non Stop Mocca Mix – pack of 24 large plugs £12.99
A new twist on the ever popular Non-Stop Tuberous Begonia range, the Mocca series has the same big, ruffled colourful flowers on Non-Stops, but now set off against the most sumptuous velvety brown to purple leaves, seemingly making the colours even bolder and brighter against their dark and moody background, standing out like jewels. Look out for the orange and pink in particular. Great in borders en masse, or in large tubs, in sun or shade, they will form little corms that can be lifted in Winter and stored dry and replanted the following Spring (although we would much rather you wanted even more from us next season after their fabulous displays this year!).

Aster Milady 24 large plugs

Aster Milady 24 large plugs £11.99
A lovely old-fashioned flower, Aster Milady produces big incurved flowers, like traditional bloom chrysanthemums, in a lovely pastel mix of blues, purples, pinks, reds, and whites. Very weather tolerant and wilt resistant, this series is a real winner for pots, tubs and windowboxes, and with dead-heading will flower right on into the Autumn too!

Bacopa Topia Mixed 24 large plugs

Bacopa Topia Mixed 24 large plugs £7.49
The first seed-raised Bacopa series, of white and blue at this stage, produces clouds of small single flowers, making it an ideal filler for trailing hanging baskets and tubs, producing masses of small flowers which fill the gaps and provide a great back-drop for larger plants too.

Portulaca Margarita mix 24 large plugs

Portulaca Margarita mix 24 large plugs £5.99
Not as widely grown as they should be, but a wonderful plant for neon-bright flowers in sunny and warm Summers, trailing gently over tubs, troughs and windowboxes, as well as baskets. They look great planted together, their zingy magenta, orange, yellow and red shades shine out brightly.
