Homebase launches ‘Chelsea Collection’ to celebrate Homebase Teenage Cancer Trust Garden

With the annual RHS Chelsea Flower Show at the end of May, Homebase is launching an exclusive collection of plants in celebration of The Homebase Teenage Cancer Trust Garden, which has been designed by Joe Swift.

The Chelsea Collection, which will be arriving in stores soon, will allow customers the opportunity to create a piece of the Chelsea Flower show in their own garden with specific gardening plans which have been inspired by the garden design.

The different planting plans have been designed so that gardeners can pick the right plan for their garden, dependent on the time of year of planting or whether they have a sunny or shady place in which to plant.

Like the garden designed by Joe Swift, the Chelsea Collection will match warm colour tones against the green foliage of the garden bringing the whole garden to life.

One of the planting plans brings together the Chocolate Cosmos ‘Choca Mocha’ which produces large, chocolate coloured flowers with a chocolate aroma, while the changing colours of the Spiraea japonica ‘Firelight’ will bring a beautiful lift to the garden – from bright orange leaves in Spring, to pink flowers in Summer and leaves turning bright red in the Autumn. Match these against the dark green leaves of the Geum x borisii which has orange flowers appearing on the brown stems throughout the summer.

The Chelsea Flower Show is on from 21 – 26 May 2012.
