Colour-Theme Plantings

This pot has been painted in stripes
to link the green background and
pink blooms of a wonderful hebe.

Create impact in the garden by colour-theming seasonal planting to tune in with their surroundings. This works best with plants in containers as the containers 
can be chosen to tone and blend with the walls, then planted with flowers in complementary colours. Once the blooms are over, they can be replaced by new plantings for the next season. You do not always have to match the colours; you may decide to use contrasting colours instead. In this way, the garden looks fresh and bright all year round and you have several scene changes to enjoy as the seasons pass.
