Bedding Plants - Sutton Seeds

Did you know that Sutton Seeds actually provide bedding plants to?  No, well neither did I until I was recently sent some to review.

The plants arrived well packaged and protected in their own boxes with bubble wrap for support.  I received the F1 Select Mix Pansy Plants which are ideal for beds, borders and patio containers and are frost resistant which make them ideal for planting at this time of the year.  The pansies came as tiny plugs which are suitable for potting on, which I wasn’t expecting as I thought they would just be ready for the containers.  Hopefully these will grow into a lovely display for the spring.  Priced at £7.99 for 45 plants is quite good value.


The second plant I received was a Achillea Strawberry Seduction plant for can be potted straight away into it’s final position.  The Achillea is an easy to grow perennial with an almost fern like foliage and lots of tiny flowerheads which are really good for attracting bees.  Priced at £7.99 this is really good value as when the plant grows it can be split into separate plants.


Sutton Seeds can provide all your gardening needs from trees, shrubs, vegetable and flower plants to gardening equipment.  I would love to know what your favourite bedding plants are?

We were sent these plants for the purpose of this review free of charge.

  5. I bought some plug plants too. It certainly is, the survival of the fittest! They are lovely to watch grow. Some of mine are still going strong.

  7. I've only recently become aware that a lot of online sites sell plants rather than just seeds. I find it a lot easier buying plug plants for my allotment than growing from seed, takes up less space too.

  9. This is a great idea, as starting from seed can sometimes be a bit hit and miss!

  10. Another terrible gardener over here too! I love the idea of growing lots of lovely things in my garden but in reality not a chance!

  11. I am okay at gardening but nurturing a plant and watching it grow is far better than ripping out weeds that is for sure.

  13. I love bedding plants. It is trying to maintain the border and keep it weed-free which is the trouble!

  14. I love a pretty garden, I just wish I was better at growing things. We have managed some sunflowers this year - so maybe we could branch out (sorry!) next year!

  16. I used to love gardening, my Dad and Nan are both keen gardeners, but with such a small garden in our rented accommodation, I seem to have lost my way :(

  18. Plants and I don't get on very well - I either forget to water them and they die of dehydration, or I go completely over the top and drown them. Oops!!! x
