Monthly Box Examples

January

In the dark days of January look out for striking winter bark of Cornus and evergreen foliage of Euonymus to brighten your garden.

February

The ideal time to plant trees such as the stunning dwarf flowering cherry Prunus Kojo-no-mai to create a beautiful spring display.

March

Time to start filling the bed with perennials to give you colour year after year.

April

As the ground begins to warm, summer flowering perennials such as the beautiful Peonies can be sited in the bed where they will produce a stunning display year after year.

May

Growing is well under way – add some architectural interest with Hostas and more flowering perennials such as Geraniums.

June, July & August

Your garden is looking magnificent! Additions of Echinacea, Cosmos, and Osteospermum continue the fragrant colours throughout the warm summer months – admire your handiwork with a cool drink!

September

Although the main summer flowering season is coming to a close there are plenty of late flowering perennials such as Achillea and Kniphofia to add colour to September.

October

As the days become shorter it is time to consider architectural planting – look out for Ophipogon and Carex in October GardeningBoxes.

November

Winter flowering hardy plants such as Hellebores have a magic all of their own, often flowering in time for Christmas.

December

Conditions generally aren’t suitable for planting outside during December in the UK, and most of us have other priorities at this time, therefore no deliveries are made during this month.
