Everyone who goes on holiday likes to bring home a souvenir in order to hold onto the memory of that special moment forever. Mediterranean plants draw you into the characteristic Mediterranean feeling using scent, colour and taste to keep the holiday experience alive. There are three Mediterranean styles: Colourful sunsets, Tasteful souvenirs and Fragrant fields.
Vertical gardening sounds like a modern term, but wall climbing vines have been doing the same thing for years. Especially in smaller, urban gardens or on balconies, a green wall can make all the difference. It’s a simple, natural way to add a little bit of wild nature to your outdoor space.
A handful of plump blueberries in your oatmeal or ripe purple blackberries in your salad, straight from the garden to your plate. There’s nothing quite like growing your own deliciously healthy fruit! With The Kitchen Garden you can enjoy a fresh harvest all summer long.
A few happily buzzing bees or fluttering butterflies make for a cosy garden, and benefit both people and the planet. Did you know that one out of three spoonfuls you eat at diner is directly or indirectly dependent on the work of a honey bee? Enough reason to fill your backyard with some beautiful bee and butterfly-friendly plants!
A tree that stays green year-round, that’s one way to survive those last cold winter months. The citrus tree has been cultivated forever – roughly 4,000 years – and has a pleasant, sweet smell. For people with a talented green thumb, sunny garden and a little luck, you might just find some fruit hanging from the tree eventually. Our Planthunters found these trees in Italy, and immediately loved the quality and abundance of its leaves.
Want a garden that’s green all-year round and doesn’t require much effort? A green hedge that can survive different weather conditions? A boxed-leaved ilex, or Japanese holly, is your plant.
