GROUND COVERS
There's no sense leaving bare ground in the garden when you can grow a wide range of colourful and intriguing ground covers. In fact, ground covers are often the finishing touch in a display. They can occupy the front of the border or trail over the edge of a wall or container creating a textural, foliage, and flower contrast with surrounding plants and taking your garden to the next level!

Our owner Gary Lewis has written the book on ground covers. Literally! Check out his compendium
The Complete Book of Ground Covers for everything you would ever want to know about this diverse and useful group of plants.
