Annual Bedding Plants
Detailed below are some of the annuals that will be on sale at Bloomers on the 22 May. These plants will be available on a first come first served basis and will need to be paid for on the day by contactless card. If you would like to reserve any particular plant please
email us. This will put a resevation on the plant but availability is dependent upon the donation having been made and the plant delivered.
Nicotiana tabacum, 'Tobaco rosa' - £1.50 This is a splendid plant; very large, up to 2m (7 feet) high, with large leaves and bearing loose sprays of beautiful, red, funnel-shaped flowers.
Cobaea scandens £2.50 A vigorous climber from Mexico with large, pale violet or purple flowers. Strictly a perennial (grown as such it will take over the greenhouse), but best grown as a half-hardy annual when it can be grown in the open. May be hardy outside in some regions with frost-free protection in winter. Flowers may open pale but will darken as they mature.
