4 Garden Trends for Autumn
4 Garden Trends for Autumn with Roses
As the leaves fall from the trees leaving branches bare, we know autumn is upon us and with it the bare stems of bare root roses. To help you achieve that autumn garden look, why not try our recommendations with either your existing roses or by preparing for next autumn by planting some new bare root roses.
Much like the trees, bare root roses will quickly sprout green again in the spring, flowering into full bloom come summer.
1. Autumn colour
Autumn is upon us and it is time to start thinking about how your flowerbed will look throughout the seasons when you plant a mixed bed or border. The repeat flowering nature of roses will see them provide colour, blooms and contrast in your garden right through to November. For an extra autumnal twist pick shades of orange and apricot.
2. Preserving Nature
Don’t be afraid of the skeletons of finished flowers and the autumnal brown hues which can offset the autumn roses, much like the style of an on-trend dried floral bouquet. The fresh repeat blooms of roses can work wonderfully well into the darker days against the dried finished blooms of alliums, grasses or hydrangeas.
Have your own harvest by cutting repeat flowering autumn blooms and bringing them inside to place in a vase. Although we may spend less time in our gardens as the days draw in roses can still be enjoyed in the warmth of the indoors!
This autumn we are embracing re-purposed rustic style and celebrating how roses can be used in a variety of containers in everyday gardens. Achieve that rustic cottage garden look by repurposing an old wooden barrel.
