There are a number of key gardening trends set to make an appearance in 2019, from gardening for climate change (look out for our upcoming vlog by Ashley) and sculptural plants, to house plants and using metal and sculptural walls.
In this article we’ve taken a look at two trends which can work in any size garden to give you some inspiration for an amazing garden.
If you’re in to bright colours, this key garden trend for 2019 will be right up your street. Go Bold and Beautiful with clashing colours, large leaf plants and bold print!
Hot, sizzling jewel colours, along with sultry purples and blues, are the order of the day for 2019 so you can indulge all your favourite colours! To make this scheme work successfully go for simplicity and repetition in the form of repeated planting patterns or plant combinations and matching, brightly coloured accessories.
Statuesque flowering perennials such as Pompon Dahlias, Allium Globemaster or Lupin Tutti Frutti will help to create colourful, striking focal points. Look too for large leafed plants, such as Cannas, Hostas, Cardoon (Globe Artichokes/Artichoke Thistles), Fatsia, Date Palms and Cordyline, to give architectural structure to your beds.
Bedding plants in brightly coloured planters will help to bring colour to hard landscaped areas such as patios and decking. Begonias, Petunias, Stocks, Bush Geraniums, Trailing Fuschia and Impatiens are just some that will provide you with a riot of colour.
