If you like new trending colours but aren’t keen to turn your entire garden upside down, why not use flower bulbs to easily transform your outdoor room into a trendy spot? Plant them in a variety of pots and planters. In borders, you can plant them among the existing plantings. A fun and rewarding job.
‘Very Peri’ (Pantone 17-3938) is the ultimate trending colour for 2022. It is a periwinkle-blue shade with violet-red undertones, which encourages inventiveness and creativity. Surely this colour would look amazing in your spring garden? There are several flower bulbs available in this shade of purple:
- Anemone (Anemone coronaria)
- Grape hyacinth (Muscari varieties)
- Windflower (Anemone blanda)
- Hyacinth (Hyacinthus varieties)
Plant flower bulbs in your border by making holes in the soil about three times the height of the bulb. Put the flower bulbs upright, with the tip facing up. For maximum effect, make a larger hole and plant several bulbs at once. Cover the flower bulbs with the excavated soil.
If you prefer to use pots, make sure that they are deep enough to give the roots enough space. Make a hole in the bottom and put potsherds at the bottom to allow excess water to drain away. Fill the pot halfway with potting soil. Plant the bulbs with the tip pointing up. Cover the bulbs with potting soil.
