Blowing Hot and Cold

A- | A+

Seasonal planting to capture a theme.

Colour theming is a great way to give your garden a certain feel or effect. Seasonal plants allow a fresh pallet every year and give the opportunity to experiment. Warm colours complement each other and give vibrancy to an area. Cool colours are calm and relaxing, providing space to unwind. Here we give our pick of seasonal plants that will work together to evoke feelings and effects.


Cool, Mellow Vibes

Blues, silver, white and even soft pink, play off each other to create a cool and calming effect.  The perfect backdrop to a relaxing summer’s evening.

White Marguerites are fantastic in pots and flower for months.



Tropical Heat

Summer is just around the corner so why not choose plants that enhance the warm, balmy days. Reds, oranges and yellows work well when grown together.

Sizzling reds pack a punch, great in flower beds and borders.
