Beautiful plants through the seasons.

Some gardens look great - but only at a particular time of year. At Lovely, Lovely, Lovely, we help you to avoid that trap. When we design a garden, we consider carefully how the plants will look at all times of the year, and we select and place them in combination to ensure that their shapes, colours and even fragrance will interact to give you ever-developing year-round pleasure, changing with the seasons. The plants pictured below are just a few of those that we like because of their strong seasonal character. Each photograph was taken by us in a garden designed by Lovely, Lovely, Lovely.
