2019 Gardening Trends

BBC Gardeners' World Live
2019 Gardening Trends

January is a month full of hope, optimism and the promise of change. In a world full of distractions, it’s a relief to find that the world of gardening remains solid and as practical as ever, with emerging and growing trends that make the genre ever more inclusive, relevant and exciting.

It’s with pleasure that we announce the trends that we see for 2019 for hands-on and practical gardeners around the country.

homegrown teas trend

Top Trend: Homegrown teas. Be it for their intense flavour, the honesty of ingredients, the medicinal properties, or general interest, we predict that more windowsills and areas of the garden will be given over to plants for use in crafting a variety of aromatic teas, cocktails and edible garnishes.

Few have their finger more on the colour pulse than Pantone, who've announced their Colour of the Year 2019 as Living Coral. Our Floral Marquee and Plant Village are a veritable rainbow of colour, but we’ve managed to select a few of our favourite on-trend coloured blooms from exhibitors at the 2019 Show. 

From peonies to roses, lilies to sweet peas, find out more about the on-trend colour of the year.
