Growing your own flowers, herbs and vegetables is a lot of fun, and with some simple tips, it can be pretty easy to make sure your outdoor space is a showstopper.The experts at Ball Horticultural Company offer insight into the year’s top gardening trends so you can plant with confidence and creativity:Trend number 1: Create curb appealYour home’s exterior will influence the first impression of anyone that visits. Give your entryway an instant beauty boost with begonias. They’re perfect for the time-starved gardener, grow well in sun or shade, and fill in fast and full. At the forefront of this trend are Megawatt begonias. New for 2018, they feature exceptional performance and a unique bronze-leaf color that is sure to be noticed by guests.Trend number 2: TablescapesBring the beauty of gardening indoors with tablescapes. Use your harvested vegetables as decor inside in display bowls; you’ll give your interior design a fresh look. There are also non-edible potted veggies like Hot Pops Purple Ornamental Peppers. They mature in multiple colors to keep you in color all season.Trend number 3: Fresh food fascinationsThere’s nothing like pulling fresh food from the garden, but 2018 is trending toward more unique flavors. Replace your traditional pepper plants with specialty hot peppers like jalapenos or chiles. And you don’t need tons of space to enjoy multiple tomatoes. Try “Take 2” Tomato Combos which give you a slicer and a cherry tomato in one pot, providing twice the flavor in half the space. Travel the globe through herbs: Plant a kitchen garden of different basils, lavender, and mints. Use them in your next cocktail!Trend number 4: Customize with colorA great garden is more than just a food source, it’s also a thing of beauty. One of the hottest trends for 2018 will be accenting your garden with unique colors that reflect your style. If your favorite color is purple, pink or white, weave some petunias into your garden design. If you adore red, try Archangel Cherry Red Angelonia for a delicate texture that weathers any extremes. Fill your garden with plants to match your favorite team’s colors for a fun customized twist. Whatever you choose, a splash of color is sure to get your space noticed.Get started on your garden project todayThe 2018 gardening season is just beginning, so now’s the perfect time to make friends with your local garden center for the best plant selection.
