When you’re looking to enhance the beauty of your outdoor space, it’s always good to bear the seasons in mind.
The more experienced gardeners out there will know what's what when it comes to the best plants to add to their garden.
But if you’re a new homeowner with a garden you’re looking to get into shape, it’s a good idea to take the time to learn what makes sense to add to the mix.
Perfect plants for July
Summer is when the flowers in your garden truly come into their own, and there are plenty of options out there that look really good around July.
Take Hollyhocks for example. Coming in beautiful shades of pink, purple and red, Hollyhocks can grow up to 5 feet tall and are a fine addition to any outdoor flower bed.
Geraniums are an equally pretty addition to your garden this July, as are Echinaceas.
Astrantias have also grown in popularity, while violas, pansies, and wallflowers are always a popular choice. These are really gorgeous additions and add a real dash of summer colour.
As the summer moves on, heleniums, dahlias and penstemons all come into their own too. Try to take the time to research fully what blooms when, and turn your garden into the perfect outdoor space.
