When summer ends and all our favourite blooms die back as the weather gets colder, our gardens can end up looking a bit tired and worse for wear. But, what if we told you that you didn’t have to wait for spring to breathe life back into your winter garden?

We’ve selected a few of our favourite winter garden flowers and plants that will help you add some colour to outdoor space, whatever the weather!

Winter Flowering Faves

It can be hard to find lots of flowers that bloom throughout winter, especially in the UK. However, there are a select few that can effortlessly add more colour and excitement to your flower beds and patio containers, even in the colder months.

Grasses and Shrubs

You don’t need flowers to create an exciting garden display! Ornamental grasses and shrubs are a brilliant way of adding some much needed colour to your garden in the winter, and we’ve got the perfect selection to choose from.

As the name suggests, Evergreen trees and shrubs are perfect for adding some greenery to your garden. Unlike our other winter garden flowers and plants, these beauties will last you all year round and need very little pruning and upkeep. A perfect choice for those who don’t tend to spend lots of time pottering around their gardens.

If you prefer your spring garden displays, then why not start them early? There are plenty of spring-flowering bulbs that appear earlier in the season; a brilliant choice for adding some much needed colour and cheer to your garden towards the end of the winter.
