What’s hot in the garden according to Wyevale
Get a jump on the latest gardening trends so your grass (or flowers) are greener than your neighbours, as you might say.
The second edition of the Garden Trends Report from Wyevale Garden Centres combines the insights and expertise of its senior buying team, plus survey data from more than 27,000 British gardeners, to uncover the key trends shaping our gardens.
The report reveals six main trends:
Front of show
Does your front garden get overlooked? Now’s the time to change it, as house-proud Brits look to boost property value and put a personal stamp on their homes.
Climbing rose James Galway, from David Austin Roses, is small enough not to engulf a front garden and has few thorns.
There’s a trend towards planting native species, buying British-grown plants, to the resurgence of traditional favourites, such as geraniums (Pelargoniums) and new social media gardening stars.
Planting schemes are focused on innovative displays of colour, fragrance, light and texture to create an immersive space. This year’s Pantone Colour of the Year, Living Coral, looks to be very successful.
Health and healing
From air purifying plants to plant protein, wellness has spurred a new desire to garden for physical and mental health benefits.
Boundaries between the indoors and out have blurred, with living spaces flowing outdoors and gardens reflecting interior spaces with areas to dine, entertain, relax and be active.
Giving back in the garden
From environmentally conscious shoppers to wildlife and the weather, today’s gardeners are much more aware of the changes that can be made towards a more sustainable future.
