Summer Flower Hot Bed Planting & Display

RT Maintenance created this sumer hot bed, filled with glorious colours, for a client in Sussex.

This area was planted trying to get the WOW factor when people saw it and it certainly achieved that! We used a palette of hot colours to get the summer / tropical feel.

The plants used in the garden included:

  • • Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff'
  • • Agapanthus
  • • Ornamental bananas
  • • Cannas
  • • New guinea impatiens
  • • Verbena bonariensis

We tried to use different heights of plants & fragrance, as well as different leaf colours and textures to add interest. These beds are normally planted towards the end of April to May (depending on the weather) and with care, water and feeding will give a stunning display until the first frosts.
