Brighten your garden with a splash of colour
DO YOU want to give your house and garden a country cottage feel this winter?
The cooler months have settled in and while the Whitsundays doesn’t suffer from the drab, dull winter experienced further south, you can add vibrant colour to your property with delicate and very pretty flowering plants.
Lack of frost in the tropics means varieties such as pansies, petunias and poinsettias should flower in the cooler months.
You can plant them in pots, garden beds, vegetable patches or window boxes and they will flower through to November.
While some varieties prefer shade, many like full exposure to the sun, making courtyard or patio locations perfect.
Roses also prefer the cooler temperature. Roses are fragrant and beautiful, and can liven up any garden.
Winter is also a good time to mulch to prepare for the hotter summer months.
The staff at Plants Whitsunday Plants Plus can help you plan your garden to compliment your home and make the most of a bright splash of colour.
They are the experts when choosing colours and varieties and can help you transform your home and garden.
