Bedding Plants; 5 reasons to avoid bedding plants:
Bedding plants are lovely surely? Well yes they are, but for how long?
They rarely perform well for the whole season and are prone to bug attack.
Bedding needs lots of water and regular feeding to stay looking nice – if you don’t it quickly looks awful.

Bedding plants are grown under perfect nursery conditions, so once you get them home they often sulk then die! (Incidentally perfect conditions means lots of artificial heat, light, spraying and copious watering – not very green then).
