Impatiens ‘Wild Romance Red’ – our star plant

We’ve specially selected this variety as an exclusive to BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine, because of its early and long flowering season, as well as its compact habit and abundance of blooms. Easy to care for, the fading petals fall cleanly from the plant. The large, semi-double flowers and dark foliage made this essential to include in our summer plant range.

Petunia ‘Sweetunia™ Johnny Flame’

The dark, velvety flowers of this compact plant make it a perfect contrast for brighter blooms and colourful foliage. Strong, healthy growth make this a trouble-free plant for summer, and with basic care it will continue to pump out flowers throughout the summer. It’s the perfect planting partner for pots and hanging baskets.

Diascia ‘My Darling Berry’

This compact form produces stems that are densely packed with long-lasting flowers. We picked this variety for its heat resistance, which makes it ideal for growing in containers. The bushy, upright growth also means that it is well suited for planting near the front of flower beds where its upturned flowers can be enjoyed.

Coleus ‘Main Street Fifth Avenue’

The free-branching habit of this variety produces a bushy, compact plant covered in exotic colour foliage. Robust and reliable, our selection is a great contrast and foil to the foliage and flowers of other bedding plants. This trouble-free plant makes an eye-catching focal point in a pot or flower bed for the summer.

Ipomoea ‘Bright Ideas Lime’

With a semi-trailing and free-branching habit, this variety is well suited to growing as a foliage plant in summer containers. The elegantly pointed leaves look good whatever our weather throws at them and their zingy colour makes a superb contrast with equally strong hues and shades.
