Bedding plants is a task of patience | In the Garden
Aug 03 2010, 11:31 AM
The Victorian era popularized bedding plants. A man named Donald Beaton (1802-1863) is accredited for influencing the different garden writers of this period like George Fleming in a popular garden magazine “Cottage Gardener.” Carpet bedding was extremely prevalent. These carpets of color were arranged in geometrical patterns, or planted as living monograms, crests, etc. Newspapers were advertised in carpet bedding. This form of gardening is still popular all over the world. The bedding plants dealt with here are commercially started plants you buy to transplant into your personal beds, containers and planters. Start with a plan! Once you’ve plotted your personal garden map, start making a list. You don’t have to be name specific. Jot down the dimensions (actual growing space) and conditions (like sun, shade, soil type, etc.). Buying by impulse can only be done if you’re able to guide such actions. Armed with these essential facts you can let yourself go wild. Ask what’s hot. Each year, like clothing, new fads come along. Once you’re in the nursery find out the life and blooming cycle of the different plants. Perennials come back year after year and have a specific peak blooming time. Annuals live one year, biennials take two years to complete their cycle. Next, see if they are listed as half-hardy or hardy. This will guide you as to the temperatures; half-hardy going into the garden later when temperatures have warmed and all danger of frost has past.
