National Conifer Week takes place on September 24 – October 2 2016. Garden centres across the country will be highlighting conifers with eye catching displays, demonstrating the variety and choice available.
A statement from the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) draws attention to conifers’ ability to provide structure and colour all year round, saying:
“From a small balcony with room for a container, to acres of grounds with space, conifers can add another dimension to any garden. Conifers can also add year-round drama, whether as a backdrop, a standalone feature, or in a border with other plants.
“They are extremely versatile, coming in an amazingly diverse range of shades, textures, shapes and sizes. A potted conifer can be used to brighten up a doorstep or balcony, whilst planted conifers can create height and add fantastic accent pieces to any garden.”
