I travelled to Canada earlier this month. In a country where the weather is so extreme, you wouldn’t think that anything interesting is growing at this time of year – but you would be wrong!
I managed to spot lots of unique and inspiring gardening styles – and here are 9 that got me really excited…
1. Wildflower combos
2. Chrysanthemums and Pennisteum
3. Euphorbia and Ivy
4. Glass gem corn
5. Huge Hostas
6. Mosaic gardening
7. Innovative containers
8. Roses as powdery mildew indicator
9. Unusual bedding choices
