Our lifestyles are becoming increasingly busier, and it can be hard to find the time to get green fingered.

Our easiest low maintenance plants are outlined in each section below.

Tips for Easy Growing

The key thing you should consider when picking easy plants or flowers is where you're planting.

When it comes to easy care, location is everything.

Planting in areas that are naturally fertile and suited to your particular choice of plant will help immeasurably when it comes to keeping workload to a minimum.

Hardy Plants

The UK has tricky growing conditions sometimes and not all gardens are equal when it comes to fertile soil and weather.

Hardy plants are a plant type that grows well in adverse conditions and are known for their ability to survive. That means if your garden is windswept, receives poor sunlight or has problems with water, hardy plants are probably the best option for delivery.

Even a building site can be cheered up with an internal plant in the rec room!

Bedding Plants

Bedding plants are largely seen as decorative and provide bright and cheerful colours to flowerbeds and borders.

It is very common for gardens to have one or more nurseries or flowerbeds that normally comprise of perennials. You can intersperse other plants in your flowerbeds such as herbs, spices and even vegetables with the perennials.

Planting bedding plants can really brighten up dull or forgotten areas.

This means that you can really look at your garden space as blank canvas.

Simple and easy-to-maintain ideas include decking, patios, and artificial grass. If you're a water lover, you can transform your outdoor environment into a lovely wet paradise, with fountains, water features and ponds. Maybe your garden is large enough to create paved walkways, allowing you to explore hidden treasure troves.

Whatever your level of gardening experience, you can create a garden that suits your lifestyle and needs.

Delivery to Your Door

We provide delivery to your door - no matter how much or how little you order online.

Our shop to door guarantee means that you can comfortably shop from your armchair and receive the best plants and accessories with complete peace of mind.

Comparison to Traditional Garden Centres

Buying online often gives you a much wider selection of products to choose from.

This is because in a traditional garden centre they have limited space for stock and tend to only stock items that are popular sellers.

This means you often find you're missing out on some of the rarer plant varieties as they may not be popular selling items and garden centres will be loath to stock them.

At Gardeners Dream we strive to provide excellent service from shopping to delivery.

Our gardening experts select the best plants to send out to you and we are confident that you will be as thrilled with your purchases as if you had seen and selected them yourself.
