Here at Blackwood Garden Centre we take great pride in growing all our seasonal bedding Plants ourselves. A Process that started last Autumn by visiting our Seed supliers trial grounds  to see what was "New" and would offer our customers some of the latest varieties of Bedding Plants, collecting seed catologues and trying to to select the best plants for our area to provide long lasting colour.
