Garden design in the season of love

The midpoint of February brings a significant milestone with the early signs of spring heralding a month to celebrate love.

To embrace the season, show some love for your garden and create a romantic space to celebrate whether you are planning a major milestone or an intimate retreat.

Spring is the time to think about planting and romance is inherent in many blooms. Make heartfelt decisions and choose plans that symbolise love. Red roses, with their timeless beauty and captivating fragrance, are a classic choice. Planting them in your garden creates a gift that keeps on giving year after year. Opt for varieties in shades of red and pink to evoke the colours of love. Peonies with their lush blooms and delicate petals make a charming addition to any garden. Consider incorporating heart-shaped foliage such as cyclamen to add a touch of whimsy. Other plants with traditional links to the art of love include red carnations, heliotrope, and honeysuckle. Myrtle has been a symbol of love since Roman times and was often used in wedding rituals.


A romantic hideaway at the heart of your garden

Create a secluded haven where you and your loved one can retreat and reconnect amidst the beauty of nature. A summerhouse is the ideal venue for a St Valentine’s Day celebration at home. Create the perfect ambience with our tips:

  • Choose soft lighting and decorate your summerhouse inside and out with festoons of fairy lights for a magical glow at dusk.
  • Place orchids inside your garden building to add colour and express the depth of your feelings.
  • Set up a bistro table with white linen cloth and single red rose in a crystal stem vase for al fresco dining.
  • Add sparkle and fun with heart-shaped paper decorations or glass ornaments.
  • Suspend colourful lanterns at the entrance to your summerhouse to create a perfect welcome.
  • Scatter throws and rugs in red and crimson colourways to add plush to your summerhouse interior and keep you cosy.

When your garden and summerhouse are ready for the season of love, all that remains is to pop open the champagne, select a heart-shaped chocolate and let the flowers do the talking.
