Here's how to keep up to date with the latest gardening trends this 2021
The 2020 through 2021 lockdowns and being stuck indoors has hit us hard and it clearly shows as we have been bringing our houses into our gardens.
Whether that be building kitchens, wellness spaces or lounge areas it’s clear that gardens are now becoming the “go to” escape from reality.
Self sufficiency is on the rise this year with more people choosing to grow their own fruit and vegetables at home, whether it be in a greenhouse or in the ground.
If you are short on space, there are still plenty of options for you from runner beans to peas and herbs that you can grow in containers on balconies or patios.
2021 has become a year for people being more conscious about where their food is coming from and the wildlife in their local areas.
You may notice more gardens leaving dandelions for the bees before other flowers begin the bloom.
If you are unsure which flowers to buy to help local pollinators and wildlife, check the labels on your flowers or ask at your local garden centre.
2021 sees the return of the bright, the bold and the colourful.
Don’t be afraid to embrace your personality and express yourself through your flowers and garden this year.
If you want bright and outgoing colours but don’t want to clash try looking at a colour wheel for colours that complement each other.
Make the most out of any garden by designating specific sections to areas of interest.
In this way you can create an eye catching design that is both functional and beautiful to look at.
There is no limit to what you can achieve with each area as long as you put your mind to it.
