Seasonal bedding takes place across the numerous flower beds within our parks and gardens.

Usually summer bedding takes place in May and June and spring bedding takes place in October. However, this is dependent on weather conditions.

The council's nursery, Arle Nursery, produces bedding plants for Cheltenham Borough Council as well as other authorities. It also holds plants sales throughout the year to sell off surplus bedding plants. Income from external contracts and the plant sales go towards the nursery and the plants it produces for Cheltenham.
