A splash of colour for our gardens

It’s time to start taking a little bit of notice of that wilderness outside that you have been ignoring all winter – yes, that is your garden and yes, right now it is showcasing a fabulous selection of weeds, interspersed with overgrown shrubs and a rusted barbecue. With a bit of effort your garden could become a little haven for barbecues, dinners and summer parties, allowing you can smugly show off your ‘outside space’ (sorry, house hunting has forced me to adopt estate agent-isms ).

The Balcony Gardener is offering three limited edition seed selections to bring a splash of colour to our gardens this May. The Scented Flowers selection offers a mixture of vibrant, richly scented blooms, allowing you to bask in heady scents of a summer evening (sorry all of this floral speak seems to have influenced my vocab!). The Wildflower Seeds selection offers 30 types of wild flower seeds, this mix is perfect for creating a small flowering meadow, or for cultivating in a few containers. Last but not least (this one is my absolute fave) is the Butterfly Garden Seed blend, specially selected to attract butterflies and other lovely little creepy crawlies to your garden, as well as creating gorgeous drifts of colour.

I have made my selection and this weekend I am going to get sowing. Hurry up, they are a limited edition!!!
