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.
