Flowers and Ornamental Plants

Flowers and ornamental plants add colour and form to the garden.  They will brighten up any space, can detract some pests and attract bees.  Planting many flowers of the same variety and colour together creates a stunning display.

The winter garden does not have to be bleak.  When designing your garden it is important to have plants that flower at different times of the year.

Plants can be propagated from seed, cuttings or dividing clumps. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a beautiful garden.
