Most gardeners want to replace summer annuals with spring bedding so few antirrhinums get the chance.
SOW seeds of bedding geraniums, antirrhinums, begonias and lobelias as these will take 20 weeks to come into flower and need an early start to look good when summer bedding schemes are planted out in June.
For containers and flower beds or borders, my favourite plants are Ageratum (fluffy mauve-blue flowers on short stems), Antirrhinums (snap-dragons for children - dead head for the best performance), Begonia semperflorens (summer long masses of red, white and pink flowers), Cleome (the spider flower to give height to a display), Dianthus (choose a good one to add scent to the display), Gaillardia (for those really hot, sunny patios), Bedding Pelargoniums (sold as Geraniums - superb flower colours), Lobelia (huge variety of flower colours to act as a background to other bolder plants, Bedding Nemesia (annuals that flower their heads off), Nicotiana (scented flowers in their thousands).
Sow under glass slow-maturing bedding plants such as African marigolds, below, petunias, lobelia and antirrhinums.
Choose from showy petunias, lobelias and busy lizzies or less common kinds like scaevola with violet blue `half flowers', trailing antirrhinums in white or red, felicia daisies with sky-blue petals, bright yellow bidens, white bacopa or osteospermums, which are really perennials but grow well as annuals.
Nemesia, antirrhinums (snap dragons to you and me) goditia, mesembryanthemums, salvia, marigold, candy tuft and stocks so scented I can smell them down the years.
Do not sow antirrhinums too thickly - an excess of seedlings often leads to damping off.
In the greenhouse sow half-hardy annuals including antirrhinums, begonias and salvias
We are planting a pink and lavender colour scheme this time, using begonias, antirrhinums, fuchsias and verbena.
NSOW slow maturing bedding plants such as African marigolds, petunias and antirrhinums under glass .
FOR something different on the patio ( vigorous trailing antirrhinums in sumptuous colours are available as well-established young plants.
Even as late as this, I'll still pinch the top out of Salvias and Antirrhinums to make them branch more, although it does delay flowering.
