New season colours to brighten up autumn

Wednesday, 15th August, 2018 4:48pm

The burnt oranges, autumnal yellows, deep purples and rich pinks are all coming into blossom, and are ideal to add to your garden. These wonderful colours have now arrived into our garden centre.

Revitalise your hanging baskets, containers or garden beds with a variety of new season plants. By adding autumn colour now to all your borders and containers, your patio will be vibrant right up till the end of autumn at least.

Nothing heralds the arrival of autumn in the garden than good old-fashioned chrysanths - and these amazing Hardy Garden Mums are just the ticket to fill your garden with colour late on in the season and on into winter.

Naturally dome forming and compact, they will make fabulous potted plants for outdoors, or neat little domes in beds and borders.

They will be smothered in literally hundreds and hundreds of flowers in deep, rich autumnal shades, their filled centres joining together to create a carpet of colour.

Chrysanthemums grow best and produce the most flowers if they are planted in full sunshine. They respond to plenty of food and moisture.

This garden mum is as tough as any mum out there and rises to the challenge made by our weather.

Chrysanthemums can survive our changeable weather very well. These garden mums are considered the most hardy and long-flowering of all of the garden mums.

They offer superb autumn colour each year and stay a perfect ball shape that will enhance your garden and add that little touch of autumn elegance!

Garden mums can be grown in containers and pots, as well as in the ground. I really recommend that you try these – I guarantee you will absolutely adore them just as much as I do! Available in reds, yellow and elegant white.

This award-winning plant is a showstopper that is tough hardy and a flying out the door. A striking new senecio with the beautiful name Angel Wings, it has silky, silvery white foliage and is a perfect plant for indoors as well as outdoors. It’s beautiful to use for mixed containers or as a solitary on patio or balcony.

With the real feel of an actual lambs ear, all soft and downy, Senecio Angel Wing is a plant that will thrive in almost every garden.

The shape is architectural, and the colour just about as silver as you can get! Use it alone or in combo with some similarly hipster plants!

Plant a bee friendly bulb for free to bring home and nurture on Sat 18 August. It’s a free event and no booking is required.

This is its seventh year and will be the biggest year ever. There will be free workshops all day from 12am to encourage children to start planting.

Each kid gets to carry home their free pots filled with bulbs to nurture over the months and admire in spring.

Throughout the day there is free face painting, prizes and lots of fun.

Meet the beekeepers and guests with their observation hive from 12-4pm. This is the best way to see and observe the honey bees at work.

It’s a fun day guaranteed to get kids active and learning with energy, enthusiasm and fun.
