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.
Sowing of this years crop started the day after Boxing Day! Despite a very cold and dark start to the season giving tough growing conditiions,It is now great to see all the hundreds of hours of hard work sowing and tra nsplanting 1000's of seeds looking great and on sale now,
We have an extensive range of Filled Tubs and Planters as well as hanging baskets ready in store now, why not Let us take the strain and do the work for you!

Plant of the Week: Camellia sasanqua
Flowers in winter are as rare and precious as jewels, and this lovely camellia is among the most prized and spectacular of them all.
Blooming from late autumn right through till spring, there are few shrubs which offer such fantastic value, with handsome and glossy dark green foliage all year round, brilliantly coloured, delicately fragranced flowers and a robust, low-maintenance constitution. 'Crimson King' is a favourite, with deep crimson single flowers surrounding golden-yellow stamens. 'Narumigata' is pink-blushed white; while 'Plantation Pink' is covered in masses of candyfloss pink blooms and has an upright habit which makes it easy to train against a wall.

Plant tulips as generously as you can throughout the garden for brilliantly colourful drifts next spring. Pack containers with bulbs, or plant in ribbons through the garden. Choose early, mid-season and late-flowering types from the huge range available in the garden centre now for flowers from April till June.
