September - The gift of growing

Plants are the perfect gift, whether for family, friends, to celebrate a birthday’s and special occasions, or just to treat yourself!

Not only does giving a living plant encourage someone to care and nurture their gift, it’s also something that goes on giving, providing enjoyment for so much longer than cut flowers.

Plants grow and flourish – possibly for many years to come– proving a constant reminder of the person who gave it to them.

So share your love of gardening with others by giving a plant they’ll enjoy and cherish.

Garden centres and nurseries are full of beautiful plants this month, some with meaningful and personal names, so why not start your friends off on their own gardening adventure.

Look out for plants carrying seasonal colour, fruits and berries such as Chinese Plumbago (Ceratostigma ‘Forest Blue’ AGM), long-flowering Alstoemeria, Bluebeard (Caryopteris), Hydrangea, Hebe, Camellia sasanqua ‘Versicolor’, Pansies, Violas and Heathers.
