The Top Gardening Trends For 2022!

Christmas is very nearly upon us and, no doubt, you’re all incredibly busy, rushing around getting all those last-minute bits and bobs sorted out before December 25th. This can be a very hectic and quite stressful time of year, so it’s important to make sure you take the time to unwind and relax – and what better way to do that with a spot of gardening?

Of course, there’s not a huge amount to do in the garden at this time of year, so looking ahead to spring could be a great way for you to centre yourself and help you remain cool, calm and collected as the festive madness really gets underway.

All sorts of gardening trends are expected to come to the fore in 2022, so familiarising yourself with them now will help you decide what you want to do in your own garden when the warmer weather stages a return.

One beautiful trend predicted to be big news is dark foliage designs, with plants like crape myrtle, heuchera, smoke bush and ninebark used to help brighter plants and flowers really pop and stand out. A beautiful effect!

Naturalistic planting is also something else expected to be very popular with gardeners here, there and everywhere, with textured hard landscaping mixed cleverly with softer planting, with greater focus on sustainability rather than formality.

As for hard landscaping itself, solid paths may start to fall somewhat out of favour, with other materials like wood chip and gravel being seen increasingly, growing in popularity because of their permeability and how flexible they are to use.
