Here’s what’s on our radar for the 2013 gardening season.
Pantone’s colour of the year
Last year it was tangerine tango, a lively shade of orange you could add to your garden via plants, like begonias, or pots, tools and garden paraphernalia. Pantone has named emerald green it’s colour for 2013. I’m going to state the obvious here. This rich, royal hue is already pretty prevalent in all of our gardens, either as foliage, shrubs or leafy plants, like hostas. However I’ll be looking for jewel-toned specimens for my containers this year. I really like the look of this “spiller” called Big Leaf Creeping Wire Vine from Proven Winners. The leaves are so dainty, yet richly hued.
