Garden plants

Nature, every day, gives us many species of plants to use in our gardens. Small, large, herbaceous, shrubby and flowering, the garden plants are truly endless. However, it is not easy to recognize which ones are best suited to the available surface, the climate and the land on which a particular garden stands. In this case it will be advisable to know the characteristics of the plants that you want to grow in your own private outdoor space. Adequate knowledge on garden plants can also be learned thanks to the advice of a nurseryman or more easily by reading magazines and online magazines on gardening, which we hope will also include the contents that we offer on our site.

Which ones to choose


Choosing the most suitable plants for your garden will allow you to better optimize the care and maintenance of the outdoor space and the plants themselves, without risking seeing them wither prematurely or compromising the aesthetic performance of the green area. The choice of garden plants is part of a real planning and design activity of the style that you want to give to your garden, for which, in the context of this planning, you will need to have clear ideas about the space available, the number and on the type of plants to be cultivated, but also on the climate and soil conditions most suitable for the chosen species. For example, if the garden is located in a warm climate or a typically Mediterranean area, plants suitable for warm climates must be chosen, such as succulents or fruit trees such as lemon or olive. An important choice must be made between tree and herbaceous species, determining the ideal number of both and relating it to the available surface. In small gardens, unfortunately, it is not easy to place shrubs higher than two meters and therefore you will have to opt for species with a lower stem or for herbaceous varieties with which to create hedges and flower beds. In the garden, flowering plants cannot be missing either, both with fixed stems and climbing plants. Flowering plants enrich the garden with color and life, maximizing its aesthetic performance. These plants can be grown in pots and planters, if the garden is paved, or on the ground, to create colorful flower beds. The flowering climbing species can also have a useful shading function, perhaps to cover a fence or a pergola. In this case, the garden plants will integrate perfectly with the outdoor space, becoming a tangible sign of the style you want to give to your garden. To simplify our discussion and make it more understandable to readers, we will divide the classification of the main garden plants according to the size and style of the garden itself, always taking into account the climatic factor and the soil on which the plants must be hosted. becoming a tangible sign of the style you want to give to your garden.

In large cities and in the countryside it is now difficult to find large gardens. These spaces are often the prerogative of ancient noble residences and public villas that are enriched with an endowment of shrub plants. Large gardens can be decorated with trees belonging to conifers, such as firs, cypresses, cedars and junipers. These plants, after the first planting, tend to become huge and, in fact, are used exclusively to decorate parks and public gardens, including municipal cemeteries. In a large private garden it is preferable to choose a few specimens of these shrubs, perhaps placing them in a very spacious corner or at the entrance to the garden or in an avenue. Otherwise, you can choose specimens of evergreen trees and shrubs, such as mimosa, acacia, magnolia, autumn camellia, boxwood (widespread in Italian gardens), holly and azalea. These species have lush vegetation, intense colors and decorate the garden with an ornamental effect that is nothing short of perfect. It is no coincidence that these are the most used plants in the gardens of our country. The evergreen species also make it possible to have a garden in good condition even in the winter months.

Plants for medium sized gardens


In medium-sized gardens you can choose trees or herbaceous plants with spring flowering and the most varied and intense colors. Some varieties also bloom in summer and autumn, decorating the garden with colors ranging from white, to fuchsia, to blue. This is the case of hibiscus for example. But in a medium-sized garden you can also place ornamental flowering trees, such as apple, plum, cherry, peach and pear. These are trees of less height than the fruit varieties, used for ornamental purposes for the beauty of their flowers. Other flowering plants for medium sized gardens, magnolias, which produce large, dark red flowers.
