Colour Your World

The complete feel, look and style of a garden can change dramatically for each season of the year by adding seasonal colour. Get creative in your garden by designing eye-catching combinations and adding fragrant blooms to enjoy the impact of colour all year round.

Here are some colour and scent principles:

Bold and Beautiful
Shades of red yellow and blue. Yellow and blue are an eye-catching contrast.

Contrast
To create contrast, look at the colour wheel below and use opposites or complementary colours when planting e.g. orange and blue, yellow and purple, red and green. Add in white to really make your contrasting colours ‘Pop’!

Neutral Hues
These colours go with everything and are fantastic fillers. Whites and silvers, beige and cream.

Hot Hot Hot
Pinks, oranges, reds and purples create an exciting focal point.

Soft and Sweet
Pastel colours of pale yellow, lavender, baby blue and cream (not white), create a soothing effect.

Scented Annuals
Blooms that open later in the day are often fragrant, relying on their perfume to entice pollinators. To achieve a scented garden that you, your family and visitors notice, cluster pots of scented annuals and place them in entertainment areas. Plant in mass for impact. The more you grow, the stronger the scent will be!

Whether grown from seed, seedlings, advanced packs or potted colour, Burbank House & Garden will help you to create a spectacular display of seasonal colour, freshness and life to your garden.
