Colour Trends 2022-2023
Select the right colours for the seasons ahead
We’ve identified four colour trend collections that mirror the primary home, lifestyle and garden trends for 2022/23. Each group features a range of plants and colours from the extensive Earley Ornamentals range to help make product selection easier.
Sunny – Colours and plants that spark optimism and stimulate a positive energy in UK gardens.
Flowers that smile such as Gazania Kiss F1 Frosty Mix will suit this trend as well as larger bright options such as Marigold French Super Hero™ Deep Yellow or Begonia Non Stop® Joy F1 Orange. Dark colours like those of Primula Belarina™ Sunrise Ruby can be included too.
Vibrant – Throw out the gardening rulebook with carefree and colourful plant choices.
Cheerful jewel-like colours like that of Dahlia Dreamy™ Nights will add a real boost of energy and enjoyment. Complement this with plants that bring texture including Gypsophilia Gypsy Deep Rose and green, foliage-heavy plants such as Marguerite Simba® Pink with Eye.
Nature’s Notes – Soft and sensory, plants that create calm and balance.
This trend encourages rewilding, bringing nature back into the garden for a more sustainable approach. Fragrant options like Nemesia Wisley Vanilla provide a sensory experience. Plants that combine soft, muted tones and an earthy warmth will serve this trend well.
Sentiment – Trusted traditional cottage garden colours with a modern twist.
Core traditional plants like Cosmos Apollo Mix will create that familiar, almost caring, cottage garden feel. Add in scented plant options and combine with interesting leaf patterns or combination planting for a contemporary take.
New Pantone Colour of the Year 2022
