Seeds & Bulbs
If you prefer the satisfaction and pleasure of nurturing and growing your own, Garsons stock a wide range of premium seeds and bulbs and, when in season, plug plants. Click on our seed planting calendar to check when best to sow or ask in-store for advice.
Watching a seed germinate and grow is a hugely exciting part of gardening and the plants you raise from seed are always more special. You hardly believe it's going to work, yet invariably that tiny kernel sends up a sturdy green sprout!
Hardy annuals like love-in-a-mist, marigolds and nasturtiums are easiest of all and provide incredibly long seasons of colour from a few seeds scattered direct into the ground in spring.
You'll find seed to sow under cover in spring for colourful containers and bedding all summer long including pelargoniums, petunias, surfinias and nemesia.
Several perennials are very easy from seed, flowering in their first year and coming back again and again. Try echinacea, rudbeckia, grasses like deschampsia and hardy geraniums from our range.
Our largest selection of seeds is reserved for the grow-your-own enthusiast, with every veg from cucumbers to pumpkins.
Bulbs aren't just for spring, you can have flowering bulbs in your garden all year round with a little planning. Garsons stocks bulbs seasonally, so you'll find spring and summer bulbs on sale in autumn, and late-season bulbs on our shelves from spring.
These bulbs are first on the scene with a splash of colour so don't stint on quantity. Fill your garden with crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths and tulips from the fantastic range in our garden centre, and double your display by packing them into pots, too.
The time of the real showstoppers come out in the summer months, with brilliantly-coloured dahlias, flamboyant lilies, sophisticated bearded irises and easy-going pompom allium bulbs.
Plant lipstick-pink nerines for a brilliant splash of colour in September, other autumn bulbs we stock include autumn-flowering saffron crocus, exotic-looking Gladiolus murielae and brilliant yellow Sternbergia.
Tiny pink Cyclamen coum nod among the earliest snowdrops, while winter aconites and tiny, delicate winter-flowering irises like Iris danfordiae provide a cheery December splash of yellow.
