Gardening is more popular this year than ever. With lockdown meaning
that we’re spending more time in our houses than usual, we’re all
thinking of ways to improve our gardens.
What are the perfect flowers for Summer 2020?
Agapanthus, dahlias and lilies are perfect for summer. Dahlias look
especially beautiful in yellow and orange. Some other choices for your
summer flower bed are:
These four in particular bloom all summer and are easy to care for.
Where to get flowers for your garden?
Some garden centres are already open, but due to covid-19, most will open on June Monday 15th 2020.We suggest and promote shopping locally and at independent businesses, so wherever possible please support local nurseries and garden centres whereever you can. Supermarkets are open and sell a selection of summer bedding plants.
Some brilliant places to buy your garden flowers are:
- Crocus (online)
- Gardening Express (online)
- Gardening Direct (online)
- Pacific Nurseries, Sutton Coldfield
- Oakdene Nurseries, Sutton Coldfield
How to design your garden:
Going about designing your garden can be difficult. You can design your
garden yourself easily- think about what areas in your garden seem
blank or need more colour, and think about what colour flowers you would like in your garden. Flowers can be bought either online or at your local nursery.
Alternatively, you can hire a landscape gardener. You can find someone
local on Facebook or nearly any social media platform, or you can find a garden designer online.
After you’ve finished your garden:
When you have a garden filled with flowers of your choice, you can add
the finishing touch with lanterns or fairy lights. Solar lights are perfect for
summer, but it would be better to choose plug-in lights for all-year use.
