The Greenery is closed for the season. Re-opening March 2021.
Annuals are plants which are replanted each year. These plants do not survive the winter but offer fast growth and full colour and/or foliage all growing season. Each year our greenhouse team makes sure you have thousands of the best and newest annuals to plant in your garden, window boxes, hanging baskets, pots and planters.
