Plants for specific purposes

Good Garden Plants  


Use plants for specific purposes in your garden to create a mood or all year round interest


Gardens, especially smaller ones, have to look good all year, and it requires a little more thought in a smaller garden, as you can’t easily hide areas full of dormant plants or bare ground even if they look good in the summer. Your garden shouldn’t have to look ‘asleep’ for the darker months, there are plenty of plants that will work hard all year round so you can have something to appreciate every month of the year. So you can browse through our lists of plants, each has a specific purpose and all are really good garden plants. Or you can browse our ready made downloadable garden designs and we’ve done all the hard work for you – Hurrah!

So add some early birds and winter warmers, a sprinkling of foliage plants and a large portion of scent and voila  – gorgeous garden ALL year.
