Hi everyone! Summer is here and with comes more time spent outdoors (well hopefully) and while I am not a huge gardener as such, I do appreciate some pretty tubs and planters.
Here are a few of my favourite plants which are easy to maintain and add a nice bit of colour to the patio or around the front door ….
You will find these Geraniums in almost every supermarket carrying plants and flowers and they are fantastic for tubs, lots of vibrant colour all summer long:)
Beautiful lavender, great in window planters or equally good in side borders, the scent is divine….
Another favourite of mine the humble pansies which also come in various colours and sizes. I also love the little violas grouped together in one tub for maximum impact…
I also like these plain grasses planted in an attractive pot, very easy to maintain which is always good!!
Another pretty layered look with pink geraniums….
I love a standard tree in a good planter and keeping the one colour plant as a contrast makes it look so classy! White always works particularly good with the green:)
Hope you are all having a good week and looking forward to the weekend!
Just a little extra update, irish gardening expert Diarmuid Gavin is launching a fabulous summer garden in Dundrum town centre this Saturday which will be on view over the summer months and will be revealing all on tomorrow nights Late Late show!
