When we see a garden with borders that are beautifully colour coordinated it really stops us in our tracks and can make a real design statement. For example, choosing plants with white or cream flowers and variegated foliage can brighten up a shady part of the garden. Vibrant reds and oranges give a feeling of warmth and can be great mood-lifters, whilst white flowers at the bottom of the garden, can make your garden appear longer. Blues and mauves lend a calming influence to gardens - ideal if you lead a busy life and love the idea of a peaceful, garden sanctuary to escape the everyday hustle and bustle.
The Vernon Ladies have been busy compiling a selection of colour themed plant collections, varieties we've grown and loved in our gardens - including many favourites as well as a few new varieties to help you get started in creating your new colour themed displays. There are many more plants online to choose from - but these will hopefully give you some inspiration.
If you prefer a riot of every flower colour imaginable - then why not pick a variety from every single one of our collections. Mingling mauves and whites amongst your usual bright colours can make them appear even more vibrant.
White flowers have a cooling, restful effect and can also help lengthen your plot as the glowing flowers often seem further away than they really are.
Warm yellows, soft reds and pretty pinks - colours to make you feel warm even if our summer doesn't live up to expectations.
Mauve flowers have a lovely calming effect in the garden and are perfect for your own oasis - but for a really bold statement team with vivid orange flowers.
For a beautiful feminine display, look no further than this collection of the palest shades to more vibrant pink flowers.
Blue flowers are great for toning down bright displays. Blues can appear cool or warm depending on the flowers they are planted with.
We all enjoy a bit of drama in our lives and the deep, intense colours in this collection will make a bold statement in your garden.
A collection of zinging colours that will bring the feel of exotic holidays to your garden - sure to brighten even the most overcast days our unpredictable British weather can throw at us.
Classic magenta, deepest raspberry pink, burgundy - bring colour to your borders not just from flowers but foliage too! we've chosen these plants as they will provide colour in your garden for months.
