Summer is made for days lazing in the garden, enjoying the sunshine and a drink or two with friends and family, so you had better get your garden back into shape then to get it looking at its very best and ready for visitors.
Plants and flowers are the life and soul of the garden and the colours can help brighten up an otherwise fairly dull place but luckily Littlewoods have all you need to fill your garden with beautiful old colours and gorgeous scents to make your garden nice and welcoming.
If you’re wanting some true summer flowers then take a look at these Summer Bulbs which have 200 bulbs for you to choose from including Begonias, Dahlia’s and Iris’ to give you a warm selection of colours and some lovely fragrances to entice those butterflies and bumble bees into the garden.
If you want more variety of colours then try this Herbaceous Perennial Garden which has some of the best perennial plants available and give you a variety of plant heights and colours and will flower right through until late Autumn.
If you’re thinking of adding some character with an arch then try this Honeysuckle arch which you can use to plant some brilliant climbing plants such as some Wisteria or some climbing roses for added summer romance.
Fruit plants can also make a big impact of your garden providing colour and lovely fruity fragrances and I can’t think of a fruit more summery than the humble strawberry. Luckily you can grow these at home and not only do they look great but they taste great too as they’re so fresh. This Strawberry Fragaria which will produce large amounts of fruit and can be planted in soil and in separate pots.
If you’re in the mood for some colourful plants rather than flowers then a fruit tree might do just the trick and these orange and lemon trees are excellent as they are decorative all year round and have lovely fragrant leaves as well as providing you with some lovely citrus fruits that can be used in juices, jams, chutneys or you can freeze them and use them as ice cubes.
There’s a massive selection of flowers, plants and fruit plants here at Littlewoods so no matter what you are looking for, whether it’s a specific colour range of flowers or a focal piece for your garden then take a look at the plant and flowers section to see what takes your fancy.
