Flower Report for June 12 2014

Spring is now completely behind us and we have moved forward into the next floral season with the roses clearly indicating that summer has arrived. The fresh, new displays of seasonal bedding plants have filled in and have come into colour very nicely with many new varieties and combinations of plants for you to enjoy. Our expansive perennial borders are at their summer best and are providing a stunning array of different colours, forms and textures which add variety and interest. Throughout the garden we have also placed many colourful hanging baskets and container plantings which include plants and combinations of plants that are unique and inspiring. This is truly an exciting time in the garden!
