“Early indications suggest that plants with interest throughout the year will be popular, which supports the continuing trend for low-maintenance gardens.
People are moving away from bedding plants, in favour of permanent planting schemes with evergreen shrubs proving to be particularly sought after.  Structure, being the important basis for the backbone of a planting scheme, brings popularity to strong shapes such as Cupressus sempervirens ‘Pyramidalis’ and Juniperus scopulorum ‘Blue Arrow’.  These bring height to a planting plan, whilst Buxus sempervirens – topiary balls and cones, look spectacular in a formal but low-maintenance gravel garden.
Other shrubs enjoying renewed popularity are stalwarts such as Viburnum davidii and Euonymus fortunei ‘Emerald n Gold’ / ‘Emerald Gaeity’ which have been viewed as a little dull over recent years but actually look amazing when planted up.
Sales in hedging plants continues to rise year on year as people consider living boundaries as opposed to fencing, to encourage wildlife into safe havens”.
