Selecting the right plants for your garden can be a daunting task, especially when there are so many to choose from.
We’ve put together a few ‘top 10’ lists of our best-selling patio plants, hanging basket plants, evergreen shrubs and crops for pots.
These plants are perfect for growing in containers on the patio, but will be just as happy in a flower bed or border. Fuchsia ‘Giants Collection A’ includes five stunning trailing fuchsias and is great value for money.
Geranium ‘GeRainbow’ is the best in its class for trailing geraniums and looks simply stunning in a hanging basket. These low-maintenance plants are perfect for beginners and experienced gardeners alike.
Evergreen shrubs are essential plants for every garden, adding interest in the winter months when gardens are generally looking a bit bare. Daphne ‘Eternal Fragrance’ is a compact variety that just keeps on flowering. Plant it in a container next to a door where you can appreciate its heady fragrance.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a vegetable patch or an allotment to grow your own vegetables. All these vegetables can be grown in containers on the patio and some in hanging baskets too, which is great if you’re a bit short of space.
