Pick the container colour for your ideal mood

Container gardening is a fun and easy way to dress up your garden. Depending on which container colours you choose, you can create the mood you're going for. At Trowbridge Garden Centre, containers come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colours. The containers we offer are always on trend. Firstly, wooden containers are always a great option. Besides adding a true outside-feel to your garden, wooden containers offer space for creativity. Want to add a bit of extra colour to your garden? Paint your wooden containers yourself! Secondly, containers covered in oil stains give your garden more of a luxurious look, adding a relaxing atmosphere. Last but definitely not least, go for echo stem or flower colours to make your garden pop.
