Growing Somewhere Nice?
With international holidays off the table for summer, here at The Growers we are giving Brits the opportunity to create that holiday feeling in your back garden, using the magic of plants! So, swap your beach towel for a trowel and your swimming pool for a hosepipe and let us help you create your own Staycation paradise!
S is for… Sea! When we designed the Santorini collection, we knew that the deep blue of the ocean had to take centre stage. Unfortunately Mother Nature hasn’t given us much to work with in the way of blue garden plants, but that hasn’t stopped us! Create your own Greek retreat and use blue pots to complement the dazzling pinks and bright whites of our Santorini plants. Geraniums are often found in Greece, and thankfully they are great in the UK climate too – the best part is that this collection has two of them!
Craving the bright colours and buzz of a Spanish city in summer? Us too! Our Barcelona collection of garden plants brings the sandy tones of the beach alongside the terracotta tones of the city’s skyline to your garden or balcony, with the dark shades of Petunias reminding us of the night time cityscape.
Recreate the fields of purple lavender and rows of sunflowers basking in the heat of the Southern French countryside… our collection of plants inspired by Nice combine warming tones of purple and yellow that will transport you to this coastal paradise. Find a secluded spot in your outdoor space and let the combination of yellow Osteospermums and purple Petunia flourish and be complemented by the sweet scents of Nemesia – best served with a Croissant and a deck chair!
Typified by terracotta roofs and brightly coloured foliage, Madeira boasts an array of striking colours. Three varieties of Coleus are complemented by the deep oranges of Begonia and Osteospermum, and can be planted in your gardens and containers to replicate the bold patterns of Madeira’s Botanical Garden.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
Craving the Italian sunshine, copious amounts of pasta and pizza and all washed down with a glass of something cold? Us too! We can’t provide the food and drink but what we can provide is this beautiful selection of yellow, peach and coral blooms that will allow you to create your own Italian paradise without having to move an inch. Brightly-coloured buildings contrasted against the lush greenery climbing the Amalfi hills were our inspiration… now, where’s that pizza?
Inspired by the deep reds and burnt oranges of the volcanic rocky landscape, our Tenerife collection will contrast beautifully against the blue of the sky and the green of your grass in your outdoor space. The warmth of the colours will offset any chill of a British summer, with the Osteospermums brining a burst of sunshine each day when they open and close.
There is nothing we miss more than being on a sandy beach hearing the crash of the waves, as we lay dreaming about plants… well, holidays might be a dream this year but plants are certainly not! Our Mallorca collection will transport you straight to the Balearics, with the soft pastel tones and whites reminding us of the crashing waves and soft purples creating the illusion of the warm sea.
