We talked to Saul Walker at BBC Gardeners’ World Live about our hand made traditional flagstones and the best outdoor plants to match them with.
One of the Plant Experts at the show, Saul was kind enough to make some planting recommendations to complement our Hênslate flags, Yorkstone paving and Old Provence terracotta tiles.
Huge thanks to Saul for his time and knowledge.
For HENSLATE PAVING plant…
Complement the grey and blue hues of this hand made slate paving by planting lush evergreens such as Skimmia, with their lush scent, deep greens and red berries in autumn.
For YORKSTONE PAVING plant…
Balance the soft cream tones of Yorkstone with classic purples & yellows. Salvia Caradonna (woodland sage) and Eryngium (sea holly) are both great examples.
For PROVENCE TILES plant…
Enhance the mediterranean terracotta tones of Old Provence Tiles by using Bounganvillea and Black Eye Susan. Add finishing touches with potted Agave succulents.
