The secret to creating maximum impact out of a small space like a deck, patio or terrace is to add a splash of colour in planters. This could be juicy red strawberries peeking out of one of our patio planters (isn't it exciting watching them ripen) or maybe luscious tomatoes climbing up the wall. Both of these patio planters have handles so you can move them about as you wish - a good idea for a small garden.
Gone are the days of prim, polite gardens that require hushed library voices and best behaviour. The best contemporary gardens make you smile and feel utterly comfortable. At the Eden Project, we think there's plenty to be said for injecting a little humour in your flower beds. So, how about an unusual plant pot? These British sandcastle plant pots evoke careless days at the seaside. They come in three ice-cream colours which really stand out when contrasted with bushy green herbs. And while you're at it, water your plants with a robin watering can! This chirpy chappy looks great when he's off duty sitting amongst the plants.
Climbing plants are great to make the most of wall space in the garden. These pretty cup and saucer vines look great climbing up a sunny wall, pergola or fence. Clematis also looks beautiful climbing up a wall and we've got plenty of varieties on our website to choose from. Climbing hydrangeas stay flowering for a long time, which will make your small garden come to life.
No matter how small your garden is, add some life so it becomes a hive of activity. And while we're on the subject of hives, attracting bees to your garden will make your vegetables more productive. As well as our range of bee hives that come with bees, we also sell bee houses made out of FSC approved food. Solitary bees love little holes in wood, so they are naturally attracted to these bee houses. Solitary bees don't swarm and are safe around children and pets. Or how about adding a bird ball, so your garden flutters with movement. The clever design means that small birds like tits, sparrows, finches and woodpeckers can get the food from inside, but it's out of reach from the elements and opportunist squirrels. We love the elegance of these bird balls - they come in three pastel colours that complement British flora and fauna beautifully.
