Shrubs, Hedging and Bedding Plants in Milton Keynes | Planning a Garden
Visit our garden nursery in Cardington Village for bedding plants that add a splash of colour to your landscape, or for shrubs to create a backdrop. Define boundaries or screen your Milton Keynes home with laurel hedging native to our region, or come and see our resident florist, Clare, and have hanging baskets and containers made to order – either from our own stock, or in baskets and containers you already own yourself.
We’re here to help turn an idea or a concept into a stunning reality that inspires, and one which also boosts the aesthetic and economic value of any property in the nearby Milton Keynes area.
Our garden nursery grows bedding plants, shrubs, native hedging, laurel hedging and herbaceous perennials onsite, from seed, so our trade and retail customers never need to worry about issues over transportation, local soil conditions, light and temperature variation, pest infestations, environmental contaminants or aggressive treatments.
Bedding Plants for a Welcome Spread of Colour
Most homeowners in the Milton Keynes area value the impact of colour in a garden during the warmer summer months. Our bedding plants add instant kerb appeal when used in beds and borders, in planters and in baskets or containers. Visit our garden nursery and walk away with a selection of homegrown products which fill garden space not just with colour, but also with lingering scents that make it a pleasure to live, work or relax outdoors.
Begonia, Busy Lizzie, Sweet Pea, Geranium and Petunia are all popular bedding plants for summer use, and contrast with shrubs and with native or laurel hedging by adding a stark contrast of colour to any landscape.
Shrubs for Definition and a Landscaping Backdrop
Shrubs, in turn, contrast with the colour of bedding plants to create foundations for landscapes, or backdrops, but can also add a level of privacy, much like laurel hedging, to complement their definition. Choose evergreen shrubs for a Milton Keynes garden and enjoy leaves and colours throughout the year. Alternatively, use our garden nursery for deciduous shrubs and have stunning displays later in the year, especially the late summer or early autumn months.
Always consider size when planting shrubs, particularly height and width. A little planning, and only choosing a species that has enough room to grow healthily in your outdoor space, stops potential issues with obstructions and light blocking.
Laurel Hedging for Screening and Boundaries
Use hedging to screen areas around your Milton Keynes property and gain some welcome privacy without the hard appearance of fencing or walls. Laurel hedging is a fast-growing evergreen that homeowners can cut back hard to retain its shape and height. Suitable for most soil conditions, and equally as healthy in full sun or shade, laurel hedging also acts as a windbreak, reduces sound pollution and provides shelter for native wildlife.
Used alongside bedding plants and shrubs, both supplied by our garden nursery, laurel hedging completes a landscaping theme perfectly and works particularly well in urban areas, such as Milton Keynes, because it also reduces air pollution from passing traffic.
