Fabulous foliage

Overnight rain has refreshed the nursery. There is a plethora of foliage shapes and colours to be seen. This is worth considering when planning and planting a garden. Depth of interest can be achieved by using the shape, colour and texture of foliage as well the overall shape of the plant itself to achieve the effect you want.

Feathery delicate leaves like Japanese Acers contrast well with large matt green leaves; blue needles of pines contrast with purple or dark red deciduous trees such as purple beech; leaves can be heart shaped, star shaped, tiny and crinkly, or large and hairy. New growth can be a different colour to older growth - like Photinia Red Robin, or a leaf can had a different colour underside like Magnolia grandiflora. All these characteristics can make for an interesting planting palette.

We all know flowers are fabulous but don't forget foliage, and fruit can be ornamental too!

Take time before the planting season to enjoy it all.
