A handful of intriguing themes caught our attention, sparking our interest and inspiring some forecasts. Simply put, these trends are surprising. Here are a few gardening trends for 2024 to consider as you plan for the upcoming growing seasons.
Although cut-flower beds remain a favorite among home gardeners, there is a noticeable shift towards more water-efficient landscaping choices. This change is influencing the selection of blooms for home-grown bouquets. One highlighted variety from the event is Celosia, known for its ease of cultivation, heat tolerance, and low water requirements once established.
When sourcing seeds for spring, consider three particularly beautiful varieties: the vibrant variegated cockscomb, Celosia ‘Orange Peach,’ and Celosia ‘Flamingo Feather.’ These options will not only enhance fresh bouquets but also add vibrant color and texture to dried arrangements.
The rise in urban living has led to a surge in container gardening, making it more popular than ever before. According to a report, there was a 200 percent increase in households practicing container gardening last year. One way to incorporate this trend into your own garden is by utilizing vertical space effectively, using hanging and trailing plants.
Enhancing Your Garden with Edimentals
Edimentals, a term introduced by writer Stephen Barstow, refer to plants that are both edible and ornamental, making them multifunctional in landscaping. We’ve seen a recent rise in lemon and orange trees and expect the growing interest for edimentals to continue into various plants, shrubs, trees, and even traditional vegetable gardens.
