Importance of Green in the Garden
With the abundance of a broad spectrum of colours in the garden this month, it is easy to overlook the importance of the colour green. Green merits more attention for its refreshing quality and different shades, tones and textures, all of which provide the architectural backbone to your garden, lifting the attributes of other plants growing around it.
Due to the differing levels of chlorophyll, abundant sunlight will produce foliage with a lighter shade of green, whereas plants growing in shade are adapted for capturing low light levels and are therefore darker.
A number of different foliage types and shades of green are pictured below, all of which are currently in stock on the nursery.
