Garden designer Anne Keenan of Goodworth Clatford shares her predictions for 2015 trends
Anne’s 2015 predictions
• More of us will use their garden as an outside room, whether it be for relaxing, eating, working or playing.
• The interest in growing our own food will continue, try some heritage vegetable varieties, they have great stories to tell and taste good too.
• Encouraging wildlife will become increasingly important.
• Increasing interest in creating covered spaces adjacent to the house, such as loggias and verandahs, so that one can sit or eat outside even when it’s raining.
• Popularity of Hydrangea ‘Annabelle’ will continue, with large blooms that change from green to lime, to white, it brings interest to dull areas.
• Look out for Ceratostigma willmotianum – lovely clear blue flowers that contrast beautifully with red-tinged leaves in autumn.
• Increasing interest in using plants that really suit the garden’s conditions, and thus cutting down on maintenance.
