Fuchsia is a flower that looks like it is from another planet, with its vibrant pink and purple shades, your garden will look like a rainforest in no time. Fuchsia flowers thrive off heat and light making them the perfect flower this summer, during the winter months the flower goes into sleep. Although it appears to have died it will blossom again, once the conditions improve.




Clematis flowers are a popular option for filling vertical space. Thriving from 6-8 hours light a day however requires regular maintenance and pruning. Due to their mass reproduction, an array of Clematis flower plants can quickly amass. Pruning the plant’s results in leaves being scattered everywhere to save time and your back from bending over and picking them up, it is recommended to use a leaf raker that simply collects the leaves in one go.


Rose Of Sharon

This larger shrub requires little to no maintenance, only sunlight and well-drained soil. Available in shades of pink, purple, white and red, growing a Sharon is an effective and easy way of adding colour to your garden.




Another statement flower that adds an array of vibrancy are Foxgloves. The plant itself can reach 6 feet in height quite easily and bloom during early summer. The flower blossom colours range from pink to white and are great for adding colour next to hedges or small trees.

Carnations are known for their bold hues and impressive variety, growing up to 24 inches during peak summer. Their bright and flamboyant appearance, similar to roses, creates an exotic feel to your garden. Although the flower itself is easy to care for, regular pruning including leaf trimming allows the plant to flourish. Simply trim the leaves when they start to grow bigger.


Hibiscus Flowers
