Our team here at Tong have shared some of their favourites with you as well as some helpful tips for looking after your bedding plants…

Bedding Plants

They will add bold and bright colour as well as new textures and gorgeous summer scents to your pots, containers, hanging baskets, beds and borders. It’s time to plant some colour and the choice is blooming good.


Feed containers and baskets using a slow-release fertiliser in granules or tablets, and supplement with liquid feeds for an instant boost.

Get the best from bedding by deadheading.

Simply remove the dead flowers as they fade to keep plants looking tidy and encourage new blooms. Water daily in summer and twice daily in the height of summer for plants in containers and hanging baskets.
