With so many people having patio and conservatories, small trees and shrubs become more important in the area immediately around your home. Shape, fragrance and colour offer year round pleasure and minimal maintenance is helpful for those who have a busy life style or are retired.
We suggest trees and shrubs such as Olives, Bays and Citrus which are evergreen, together with roses, climbers and bulbs for year round interest. Vines, Figs, dwarf Apple and Cherry trees are all beautiful and useful additions to patio and conservatories
Choosing pots involves both the setting and what you intend to grow. Terracotta is always useful as it is porous and remains cool. Lightness is important with larger pots if they need to be moved for different seasons. Compost and general feeding together with watering is all important for a successful and pretty garden space.
