For creating structure to the garden, shrubs are essential. They also create shelter to the other plants in the garden, and they will attract birds and other wildlife into your open space.
Evergreen shrubs are great for adding a bit of colour in the winter months, such as Viburnum, Ceanothus (Californian Lilac), and Camellia.
Shrubs with foliage and stem interest, include: Pieris and Hebe. The Japanese Maple (Acer) is grown for its deep purple foliage, but other varieties have different coloured leaves.
Great flowering shrubs include: Rhododendron, Camellia, Mahonia (flowers in the winter), Lilac, Hydrangea, and Fuchsia.
For the traditional garden, we also sell a large selection of roses which are always a popular choice.

The Clematis has been popular in gardens for centuries and with so many varieties available there is always one to choose from whatever the current season is. Some varieties are evergreen, like the Clematis Armandii, preferring a sunny sheltered spot.
Other climbers include, climbing roses (Rosa), Honeysuckle (Lonicera), Jasmine (Jasminum) and the Passion Flower (Passiflora). Another favourite is Wisteria, a rapid and strong grower, having a mass of purple, blue or white flowers in May.
For the flower beds a range of smaller plants add an extra splash of colour in the summer months. The main border favourites include Lupins, Delphiniums, Cosmos and Dianthus (pinks). For hanging baskets and pots there are Nasturtiums, Lobelia, Busy Lizzies and Geraniums.
For rockeries there are the alpines and the heathers. Heathers are great for adding colour to your garden in the late winter before the spring bulbs are in flower.
The great thing about edible plants is you can enjoy them as being part of the garden, but you can eat them as well.
Herbs grown in the garden are great for adding flavouring to food. Rosemary and mint are very easy to grow and require little care. There are many other herbs on offer here at North Wales Garden World.
Vegetables don’t need a lot of space like many believe: Lettuce, peas, onions, carrots are compact plants. Why not try growing tomatoes against on a south facing wall?

Plants for a Purpose
Plants are often chosen for a purpose. The shady side of the garden is often thought of as the difficult part of the garden to find plants for, but many plants do not need sunny positions: hostas, ferns and Vinca (Periwinkle).
For gardens next to the coast, this can be an issue as many plants don’t tolerate the salt air. Examples of plants happy with coastal locations are Tamarix , Holly (Ilex), Privet, and Broom (Cytisus).
There is something special about the scented garden. Lavender is popular and easy to grow. Roses of course have a fantastic scent to them. The climber Honeysuckle is great as well.
To attract the birds, add plants with berries such as Pyracantha or Cotoneaster. Ornamental grasses will attract the seed eating birds like finches and sparrows.
Plants For A Particular Season
After the long winter months, Spring is a very colourful time in the garden especially with the use of primulas and spring bulbs like daffodils and tulip. Forsythia is a popular shrub with bright yellow flowers in the early Spring.
In the autumn there are many shrubs grown for their foliage which turns red before the leaves fall, such as the Virginia Creeper or the Ornamental Vine. In the winter, you can still colour your garden with the likes of Heather or Mahonia. Alternatively why not try conifers which can provide shades of blue (Cypress) as well as green.
