As the weather gets colder and the evenings darker why not plan an English Garden design feature?
Take a look through the English Garden site and choose some scented plants to go by your house entrance or plan a pink or white border by the lawn.
An English Garden is full of wildlife so remember to have plants such as honeysuckle whose flowers attract butterflies and moths and then later in the year its bright red berries are food for birds.
Its scent is just gorgeous and it is easy to grow, actually doing very well in a semi shaded spot. So take a look at the honeysuckle collection next time you are in a plant center.
Antirrhinums or Snapdragons are a traditional English Garden plant which will brighten your garden – the seeds can be sown until early November if you keep them in a cold frame but if you have heat then sow the seeds in January or February. Don’t forget to include them on your wish list.
Wish lists are good ways of getting plants for your garden. As the holiday season looms take the time to make a list of features and plants that you would like in your garden.
Then make sure you tell/show everyone about your list.
It makes live easier for those wanting to buy you gifts and you get free really appreciated garden plants and seeds.
As well as seeds, plants, garden tools you could include books, hand lotions, gardening gloves, cold frames, kneelers, wheelbarrows, seats – take a look around your garden and compile a list today.
In fact just writing this has made me feel I must do exactly that now!
