Griffins New Season Colour has arrived up from Our Nursey,

 

We are already seeing the Autumn tones arriving in to the home store and fashion shops. The burnt oranges, autumn yellows, deeper Pinks and blues are the next seasons colours. These too are the wonderful colours that arrive into our Gardens. Revitalise your hanging baskets, containers or Garden beds with a variety of new season plants.

 

New Guinea Impatiens

New Guinea Impatiens provide hard-to-find brilliant color in shade. And it's not just the flowers. The foliage is often brilliantly, exotically colorful as well. These plants really shine in containers, where they thrive in the perfect soil and drainage, but they also do well in the ground as long as you have good drainage. They thrive in both a sunny and shady position and will reward you with colour right through till late autumn. At Griffins these is an array of vibrant colours of impatiens from an Orange Blaze to an elegant white.

New Season Pansies and Violas 

Griffins Pansies and Viola love this weather! These plants will flower right through now till the end of Spring 2016. The can survive through harsh winters and keep on flowering until June! No one believes just how wonderful Griffin Pansies perform. It's almost as if they were energised by the Poor summer! Where did they get this stamina?

In fact, pansies love cool temperature, it's as simple as that! Considering how cool this summer has been (for better or worse) I think that pansies are definitely the way to go!
