SUMMER BEDDING DISPLAYS
A feature of many gardens is their seasonal summer bedding displays. Many gardens have discontinued
with these becase of stretched resources, but the Wellington Botanic Garden continues with its tradition of these
seasonally changing displays.
The spring tulip has been a feature for many years, with some 25,000 to 30,000 bulbs planted
annually. Once these are finished, the summer plantings take place, featuring a range of plants with emphasis on
colour and varying texture.
The following photos have been taken over a number of years, and represent the range of designs.
