Tips for Creating a Night Garden

Tips for creating a night garden

Turn your garden into a evening retreat with the help of these tips.

In summer, with brighter evenings and (hopefully) balmy weather, it’s a treat to be able to relax in the garden until late. By adding night-scented plants and soft lighting, along with pale-coloured flowers and foliage that appear to glow in the fading light, your garden will become an enticing ‘room’ to sit in at the end of the day.

Gather the plants in pots and borders around seating areas to be enveloped in the heady aromas. Don’t forget to position some pots near doors and windows, so that the fragrance drifts indoors.
