Mix It Up
When you want so many different plants but only have limited places to put them, it can be hard to decide which ones to take home and which ones will have to stay in the garden centre. But, you can get everything you want all at once by multi-planting! Whether you have hanging baskets, small pots or large containers, by mixing two, three or four plants together you’ll achieve bold, full and beautiful arrangements. The world is your oyster when it comes to combinations – just do what YOU want – there are no rules! Try a simple but elegant green, white and silver combo, like the one pictured here, which features white Lobelia, white Spreading Petunias and Helichrysum. Or go rainbow crazy by choosing one plant variety but using 3 or more colours – Calibrachoas spring to mind at this time of year, as do Petunias and Geraniums.
