Colour Trends 2020-21

UK Garden Plant Colour Trends 2020

As a UK young plant producer, we like to share colour and trends insight with our growers and retailers. Gathering information from across the sector and beyond, we’ve created four key colour trend groups for UK garden planting in 2020-21.

For each trend, we show a selection of products from our range. These demonstrate the kinds of plants we believe garden designers, landscapers, and gardeners at home will be using this year and next.

We’re already seeing the impact of the Pantone Colour of the Year 2020, Classic Blue announcement.
