The Butchart Chronicles : June 19, 2014

Flower Report for June 19 2014

We enter the first week of summer with the Rose Garden in full bloom with the roses flanked by majestic delphiniums. The fresh, new displays of seasonal bedding plants are providing us with an abundance of brilliant colour with many new varieties and combinations of plants for you to enjoy. The perennial borders back up the more formal bedding displays to enhance the overall garden experience. Throughout the garden you will also find colourful hanging baskets and container plantings which include plants and combinations of plants that are unique and inspiring – it doesn’t get much better than this!
