Planting Packs

We have created exclusive planting packs for our Caragh Nurseries App, the cottage garden, blue and white garden, shade garden and prairie garden. These are some of the most asked about and popular planting schemes that our design team has put together. Of course we’ll continue to add new and exciting planting schemes, beautiful i don’t say so myself these first four are fantastic. We’ve split them into three sections, the plants that should be planted in the front, middle and back of a bed. These can be mixed around and we always encourage our customers to explore new forms of planting, but below includes examples our Garden Designer, Kathryn has given.

Cottage Garden
The concept of a cottage garden follows the guidelines of very traditional planting, with explosions of colour. This style of garden always reminds me of a pretty thatched house, with whimsical planting around.

Echinacea Purpurea
Geranium Palustre/Maculatum
Delphinium Black Knight

Planting in the back
Lonicera American Beauty

White & Blue Garden
The White and Blue Planting Plan is one of our most popular, with quite a structured italian feel that plan can create a low maintenance garden with a mixture of Blue and White flowering shrubs and plants.
