Care for a conifer? National Conifer Week 26 Sep-3 Oct

National Conifer Week is celebrated and supported by the garden industry from 26 September to 3 October 2015 – but what’s so special about conifers?

A conifer has plenty of plus points – it has great structural shape and form, plenty of lush foliage all year round and can provide an instant impact in your garden planting plans.  Add in the fact that each conifer variety brings something new in terms of shape and colour, and it’s easy to see why your garden wouldn’t be complete without a little conifer consideration.

They’re versatile too.  Perfect in a pot or ideal for a flourishing hedge, conifers work well as a backdrop to other planting or on their own, standing proud.  Great for borders, too!

So, if it’s low maintenance and high impact you’re after, choose conifers.  And look – we’ve got your favourites covered.
