Dry January is a well-known international campaign with the aim of becoming more alcohol conscious. Evanthia likes to take this inspiring initiative a little wider this month: being more conscious about water and watering our indoor and garden plants in particular. Climate change is affecting our weather patterns and making them more extreme, as well as making natural resources more limited. It requires changes in our behaviour, more efficient water use and making different choices when making purchases. This week we look at: Flowering garden plants for hot summers.
After a blisteringly wet December in many places in Europe and around the world, too low groundwater levels may not be a broad concern now. But experience from past years tells us that even before the growing season begins, much of that water supply will be gone. The result: scorching summer heat that shrivels up carefully grown plants in the garden? Not if you choose the right plants! We have listed some summer toppers for you that can tolerate the heat, flourish in the sun and look great too. These drought-tolerant plants can keep any border and window box colourful, even when rainfall is low and the heat is relentless. All excellent choices for a colourful and irresistible summer offering.
After looking at our wide collection of pot & bedding plants, could you use some advice on putting together the range that suits your specific business and customer base? Contact our sales managers or support staff. They will be happy to help you on your way.
